I intend to crack the case of the Nintendo Red Box. I have been playing Nintendo for a long time and the company has been known to make a certain amount of copies of a cartridge that is a special color. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is an example of these special colored cartridges. The Wii generation bought DVD sized discs and DVD sized disc boxes. There is one Wii game and one Wii U game that have a red colored disc case. Most of the Wii game cases are white and Wii U cases are blue. But Super Mario Bros. Wii and Mario Kart 8 have red plastic cases. I intend to delve into the mystery of these Red Boxes.
One theory I have is that Nintendo thought these games were really special or particularly fun to play. Maybe the company agreed that they put all their efforts into these titles and wanted to accentuate their unique gameplay above the rest of the Nintendo library.
Or maybe they were supposed to be console sellers. I can’t be sure, even with statements by the company on the matter.
What do you think? Leave a comment and let me know if I’m just looking too much into this!
