Over at VGboxart, a user created this amazing-looking cover for the upcoming Super Smash Bros U, which they nicknamed “Super Smash Bros Universe”. There’s also a Nintendo 3DS cover as well. Nintendo has confirmed that we’ll get the first glimpse of Super Smash Bros U at E3 2013. Nintendo will also use E3 2013 to showcase the new Mario Kart and the new 3D Mario game for the Wii U. If you’re into more of this, check out our Wii U box art page.

    That does look awesome. It makes me wonder what the real cover might have on it…

    • prettypinkpanacea

      I agree. I think Nintendo could save themselves alot of money if they incorporated fan art into their covers. It does two things: (1) gives them a cheap ass cover and (2) promotes up and coming artists…or existing artists.

      • Noteak

        It would be funny if this is the beta design and they released it as a “fan” as a preview.

        • prettypinkpanacea

          It wouldn’t surprise me if that were the case.

  • Seth S. Scott

    Love that they added Ghirahim, Mega Man and Knuckles! Give me Tom Nook and I’ll be a happy camper! 

  • AAAkabob

    Knuckles? How about Bomberman lol

  • Lazara the Last

    I noticed that the 3DS cover didn’t have a NN logo…
    Great box art, looks real to me 😀

  • WarioForever

    Link from Skyward Sword? Oh God no.

    • PKUltima

      As long as they’re not putting another Toon Link or Young Link clone then I’m fine.

      • sup3rnoah

        I read that they’re getting rid of clones

        • Jay

          I hope so


          • sup3rnoah

            ermm. can’t remember exactly where; it was a lil while back. but im almost certain it was from the words of masahiro sakurai

      • Metal_Man_v2

        Toon Link was hardly a clone, higher jumping ability, different smash attacks, boomerang that actually did damage, etc.  Unless I’m misunderstanding what a clone is.

    • Jesus Eduardo Lara Ortiz

      Why not? He’s great, or maybe they artist is kinda taking in mind a lot of skins for all the characters 😉

  • MetroidZero

    I saw this like a month ago lol. But yes, it looks great!

  • Sdudyoy

    Although I wonder why there is third party characters, It’s already been hinted at that there will be no third party characters.

    • The_fuzz_buzz

      But in Brawl, they put Snake and even Sonic into it! Look how GREAT that turned out!!! 😀

      • Sdudyoy

         I’ll be honest I didn’t really care for third party characters in SSBB because I think it should be more of a Nintendo thing, But I don’t have to be them and other people like it so I wouldn’t care.

        • Sonic made some sense to me since Sega no longer makes consoles.  It was like he was getting a new home.  I just didn’t really thing his move set or style fit with the other characters.

  • xdlugia

    Slow news day? This cover was brought up originally around september last year.

  • Juan Benitez

    Now that’s what I call box art!If this is good,just think how good the real box art will be…….*mind blown*

  • Metal_Man_v2

    Isn’t news supposed to be… new? This picture has been circulating for quite a long time.

  • HSN1


  • Jonn McNally

    It’s not going to be called Super Smash Bros. Universe.

  • Michael Workman


  • Little Mac & Pac-Man should be in the next one.

    • Jay

      Pacmans a sure bet. I wont even be surprised when i see him revealed.

  • Destructonator 101

    This is old. Very old.

    • Jay

      agree but, its not old to everyone…..

      • Destructonator 101

        This is ancient.

  • XxStoicmonkeyxX

    I actually think they are going to use the new art style of link for SSBU not the skyward sword. Or maybe they will finally give us COSTUMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  • Zero Slave

    Link should be in the front! (but it does look awesome)

  • ByteManNeo

    Mega Man or GTFO

  • great deku tree

    will Link’s costume and moves be based on the new Zelda coming for wii u? for example in SSBB he had the boomerang from twilight princess.

  • Kirbyomega

    How did he draw these?! The Yoshi and Zelda look like they were ripped from somewhere, but Kirby, Pikachu, and Mario look like they were made up!

  • I’m going to appear in this game

  • david daniel wharton camacho

    the donkey kong doesnt fit in the background…. it makes it look like a mario party game
