Darksiders: Warmastered Edition printing error causes game boxes with black spines

Mistake, or collector's item?

If you collect Switch retail games and really value uniformity, you might want to hold off on grabbing a boxed copy of Darksiders: Warmastered Edition for the time being. As you can see above, there are some game boxes out in the wild that have a black spine instead of the standard Switch red. THQ Nordic has confirmed that this is a printing error, but haven't talked about replacement plans, nor do they know how many copies are impacted.


In fairness, I think the black spine suits Warmastered. Plus, it matches the Labo game boxes this way.

Labo Darksiders kit confirmed!

i think it looks better this way, if i could, i would get a copy with this "error"

It is called "Dark"-siders.

Yeah, I think it looks cooler this way. It makes it stand out. Remember when we had games with different color carts? I miss those days.

This could be valuable and a collector's item in years to come. If the same mistake is in the European version(I doubt it though), I might buy it, despite already owning it physically and digitally on Wii U.
