Nintendo/Logo Variations

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

These are the logo variations seen throughout the years by Nintendo, with more to be added overtime.

Kirby's Dream Course (1994):

  • The logo is colored in light blue.

Super Punch Out!! (1994):

  • The logo features silver texture.

Super Metroid (1994):

  • Similar to the Super Punch Out!! variant, but the logo is bigger.

Donkey Kong Country (1994) and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (1995):

Killer Instinct (1995):

  • The Nintendo logo, which looks similar to that of Donkey Kong Country's, zooms out of the screen. When it settles in the center, the logo glows in a red color before turning back to the normal silver color. The logo then flies into the top right of the screen.

Earthworm Jim 2 (1995):

  • The text "licensed by" is seen above the Nintendo logo. The usual Earthworm Jim sequence on the series' logo variant plays.

BS Super Mario USA: Power Challenge (1996, Japan):

  • The logo is below a golden statue of Mario. Below it is the logo for St.GIGA.

Mario Kart 64 (1996): There is the Nintendo logo in gold, spinning slowly on a black background. After a few seconds, the logo spins gradually faster, and then the screen fades to white, segueing into the title screen. The logo has a trail/ghost effect when it gets faster.

Goldeneye 007 (1997):

  • On a black background, the Nintendo logo, colored in silver, zooms in front of the screen. The logo spins around until the Rareware logo fades in.

Yoshi's Story (1997):

  • The logo slides up, and is crudely drawn. Below the logo is the word "PRESENTS". A group of voices representing that of Yoshi's shouts the company name. The entire logo wiggles.

Star Fox 64 (1997):

  • The logo is white. "1997" (the game's release year) is seen above it, and "PRESENTS" is seen below.

Super Smash Bros. (1999):

  • The logo is white and is below the HAL logo.

Donkey Kong 64 (1999):

  • A sound bite of Donkey Kong saying "Okay!" is heard.

Luigi's Mansion (2001):

  • The company name is read in a dark, low-pitched voice.

Super Smash Bros. Melee (2001):

  • Same as the Super Smash Bros. variant, but "HAL" has been extended to "HAL LABORATORY, INC."

Diddy Kong Pilot (2003):

  • Diddy Kong flies around the logo, and then onto the screen, segueing into the Rareware logo.

Mario Golf Toadstool Tour (2003) and Mario Power Tennis (2004):

  • After the Dolby Pro Logic II logo shows up, Wario pops out of a hold carrying a wooden sign with the Nintendo logo, saying the company's name, before Waluigi pops out with the Camelot Software Planning logo on a sign. On the Wii port of the latter, the sign was reanimated to use Nintendo's white logo instead of red or blue.

Donkey Kong Country 2 (GBA port, 2004):

  • The logo is printed on a flag.

Pikmin 2 (2004):

  • Several Pikmin pop out standing on top of the logo, which is randomized every time the logo shows up.
