Switch Icon connoisseurs will have something to celebrate very soon. Digital Eclipses’ excellent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection is getting an update very soon, and as part of that update, the game’s Switch icon will also get a makeover.
Now, we know that some of you lovely readers are quite picky about Switch icons, just like we are. And frankly, the heroes in half a shell deserved better than what they initially received. Fortunately, Digital Eclipse has listened, and with an upcoming update, Switch owners will also be getting a new menu icon.
The developer acknowledged this long-awaited change on Twitter after confirming that he will be holding a livestream to show off some “improvements” coming to the retro build:
And yes, for those of you who didn’t like the Switch icon for TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection, when the title update is applied, the tile will become the main logo instead.
So the new icon looks pretty fancy right? It’s like the skin of the game, which is what many developers and publishers are looking for today. The original wasn’t horrible, but to say it ruffled some rat hairs.
In case you haven’t seen it, the current icon (soon to be retired) is a pretty colorful screen decoration with the four turtles on it. But there was no title, no logo, and the icon is designed to look like a small button that sinks into the Switch’s white background. Except it didn’t work if you had the Switch screen in dark mode. You can see for yourself in SuperDarkMimelV’s tweet below.
