Devolver changes controversial Carrion menu icon for Nintendo Switch

Today, Devolver announced that they are changing the menu icon for the newly released Carrion title via an update. When the game launched not long ago, many people, especially on social media, were quick to voice their opinion on what the picture looked like on the game tile. We won’t go into specifics – and you can make up your own mind on what it may or may not portray – but Devolver has deemed it necessary to change it – apparently due to the original key art not being ‘patched out’ prior to release as initially intended.

Here’s what the old menu icon looked liked:

And here we can see Devolver explaining why the original icon accidentally made the cut:

Devolver’s social media presence and marketing strategies have often raised eyebrows and this is another case of some entertaining moves by the publisher. Still, if you prefer the older menu icon, just make sure not to update the game.

  1. Carrion my wayward son. There will be peace when you scape the lab!

  2. Man people are too sensitive. Its a picture of the monster. Despite the fact that you can easily draw conclusions to something else, clearly it wasn’t the intention.

  3. I never thought of it bein a goochie goochie goo.
    Just thought was a lazy ass art tile. lol

    Like the one for Snake Pass till the very last update they changed it to the actual cover art, instead of just the snakes head.
