Fake Boxes For Downloadable Nintendo Switch Games

Mahir Sümer has an idea for anyone flashy about their game collections but bummed there aren't many Nintendo Switch games to actually put on a shelf at the moment: Make fake cases for the digital games you've picked up.

So he went and did just that, designing custom cases for a range of downloadable Switch games that can then slide into a bookcase and look for all the world like something you'd keep a tiny little cartridge in. Even though it is now holding the only thing tinier, which is nothing.

If you want to print them out and try this yourself (hint: Try asking local game retailers for spare/empty cases that they use for preorder marketing), you can find the images below.

    I cant look past the back designs. Some of them are just terrible.

    Ahhh so customers have to make their own games cause the devs aren't

    Haha I thought one of the whole points of digital was to reduce unnecessary waste.. at least around the house but also on a global scale...

    Please don't encourage people to do this lol

      Unnecessary waste... of money for companies who don't want to pay for production and shipping when they don't have to maybe :P

        It's also to protect them for the toxicity that is second hand sales.

        :-P

    Gives the illusion the system actually has a library

      Given that these games actually are on the system, I don't understand how, in any sense, it's an illusion?
