I really liked the Super Famicom games packages and art, but overall I much prefer the US design of the console and carts.

His work is done, Nintendo is going to do this boring switch design now from here on out, fun’s over the pool is drained.

Lance can enjoy retirement knowing that the NA version was inferior.
OMG THE DIFFERENCE IS mind BOGgling.

I prefer the purple monster. Mostly because i grew up on it, but also because it looks a bit less like a 90's desktop office phone like the PAL version.
