i hope when they put the next patch for deadly premonition they also update the icon. this is infinitely better than the one they've gone with

Wait so youre telling me that this icon you posted is not the official icon already? What is its current actual icon? I wonder why this icon exists and appears on the nintendo website if not for the switch icon.

I really hope they change it to this one. But its not like I have any alternative options for playing Deadly Premonition.

Sadly, a game’s icon on the website not matching the home screen icon is far more common than you might think.

It’s funny because the first games in a generation always use the normal legendary artwork while third versions and remakes always make a new one that’s always nicer... they made a different one for SWSH for the first time and it’s worse than the normal one. lol

I have had no issues with Icons for so long that when I came home and put Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition into my Switch my heart just sank. How could you do this to me Bamco! I Love the recent Digimon games so that Icon just kills me. Also just got Layers of Fear: Legacy because it was on sale... I thought this game had a decent Icon but I guess I had seen the wrong image... Now I have 2 stains on my Home Screen. Damnit.

I really like the Monkey Barrels icon, I feel the close-up works better than the icon on the website for once.
