Since the release of the Nintendo GameCube in 2001, Nintendo of Europe has adopted a "colored triangles" system for licensed video games appearing within Europe. These triangles can be found on the spine of the video game box, and currently apply to all GameCube, Nintendo DS, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U and Nintendo Switch software.
