Snake Pass Will Have Its Switch Home Menu Icon Fixed

Reddit user Neiteio previously raised concerns over the general look of Snake Pass’ menu icon on the Switch. He advised that before, the home menu icon showed the title of the game and the main character against a backdrop of ruins and greenery, and after it had been changed to an image of the snake’s face with “bulbous eyes and a goofy grin.”

A nice follow up from this, following similar backlash on Twitter, has shown that Sumo Digital has taken on board the feedback, and the icon will be getting fixed.

The developer responded with: We’ve definitely taken the feedback on board and will be changing the icon back with the next update which is due early next year. It’ll mean the branding isn’t unified but our focus is on our players and community so we’re OK with that.​”

    1. It just has to do with not conforming to the suggested standard. So since it’s different, every time you look at the games list your eye jumps to the thing that stands out, and that bugs some people. I think Nintendo should actually enforce the standard instead of just encouraging it.

      As I told shadowvegeta, consider the icon like box art. ESPECIALLY for those that only do digital.

  1. “Put down your pitchforks everyone! We, the small minority, have bullied, er, convinced, another company into changing their icon back to one more ‘appealing’ to the eyes! This is a joyous day! Suma Digital were the strongest warlords amongst the ranks to not bend to our will for months, but bend they finally did! We. Are. Victorious!!!!”

    I hope I never have a reason to complain about the icon of a game I have on Switch. I’m happy with LoZ: BotW’s icon. Hopefully I’ll like the icons for Fire Emblem Warriors & Super Mario Odyssey, too.
