Welcome to September’s Palette Swap! If this is your first time reading, we’re glad to have you and we hope you’ll come back again next month! This month we have our Standard Special for you, and I highly recommend What’s on the Box? this month! With that, on to the art! ~FunkyK38

What’s on The Box? (Yoshi876 (talk))

North American box art of Super Mario 3D World

Hello 'Shroom readers, I hope you're enjoying our Awards issue. This month I have chosen the winner of Favourite Game to be the subject. So please feel free to gawk at the North American boxart of Super Mario 3D World. The first thing you may notice about the boxart is all the cats that are populating the bottom part of it as well as the final part of the logo, this is Cat Mario, one of the new power-ups introduced in the game. However, another new power-up is also featured on the box, this is Double Mario which creates a carbon copy of the character who grabs the Double Cherry, although it is changed a little bit here as the doubles have different power-ups. In the background of the boxart is the new character Plessie, a dinosaur who allows Mario and co. to ride him along bodies of water, there is also a Goomba in his adorable life-preserver, well a preserver for him because if it touches Mario then it's bad news for him. Also hiding out in the background is a Blooper. Other than some Clear Pipes and assorted bricks and coins, there’s not much else to note about this boxart, other than one thing. The boxart has four different world themes on it, the grassland theme near the characters, the beach theme near Plessie, the snow theme close to Cat Peach and Cat Toad, and the desert theme behind the sleeping Goomba.

Featured Sprite (FunkyK38 (talk))

Well, the last time I checked, it’s about the time for everyone in my part of the world to start settling back into that routine of school! Sorry! It’s almost mind-numbing sometimes for me, go to classes, go to work, sleep, repeat every couple of days. So, to emphasize this hypnotizing routine, I bring you this sprite of a Metal Mawful from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story: Metal Mawful Mole! This is one time that I’m thankful for the gif, as it makes it easier to get caught in this enemy’s glare. Those red eyes… that draw you in…

I’m sorry, what were we talking about?
