    Hey guys! So as you know, most 3ds games come in a white case... But some of them are in red cases. This mismatch on my shelf is making me think... what would look better, switching them all to white cases, or leaving them be. Tell me in the poll, and in this thread! I'll be updating my 3ds collection shortly and I'm not sure how to proceed with these red case games.

    Having them all one color would look better, but I doubt this would be worth the hassle of making your shelf match. Personally I would just leave it be since that's how the games were pacakged. However I understand the want of having things match or something to look nice visually .

    I would leave them of their original colour and maybe putting all red games together to not create much contrast. That's what I did with my Platinum/Essentials cases for Playstation games.

    I never remembered seeing a red case game
    All of the 3ds games I have came in a white case (Probably before they changed to red?)

    Only certain games do. Super Mario Maker, Mario and Luigi Paper Jam, etc. but most came in white cases.

    At a certain point they tried making most new Mario games have the red case. Red is Mario's main color so they probably thought it was a fun added addition. I know they did this with certain Nintendo Select Mario games too.

    Red is associated with Mario and most games that had red cases were Mario games so I guess that’s why.

    Yea it became most Mario games, but not all. A perfect example of this is Mario Sports 3ds is a white case game

    I suppose the red cases exist to represent some sort of specialty of the corresponding game, or just perhaps to differentiate it from other games. Though, I never really cared about the color of the game case and the white color was fine. To be honest, I wouldn't really think too much about how different they look in a shelf of 3ds games :p
