Unused Nintendo Wii logos include some serious design crimes

With the Nintendo Switch continuing to top wish lists five years into its life, it can be easy to forget some of the weird and wonderful consoles that came before it. Nintendo has always had a penchant for unorthodox designs – and it seems that spirit extends to its products' logos too.

Last year, a huge bunch of unused Nintendo Wii logos resurfaced – just 14 years after the console was released. The logos, spotted in a 2007 Nintendo company handbook, are rendered in a dizzying range of styles – and some are pretty dire. Let's just say the designs in our best logos round-up have nothing to worry about. But Nintendo is, of course, on something of a high right now – check out the best Nintendo Switch deals if you want to experience the best-selling console of the last few years.
