    The Destiny box could use a gradient in the background. I like the idea on the Division box, but the font you've used could be bolder and a bit more stylish and on the back of the the Mario & Luigi box, the header could use a more spacing between the words. They all got potential, so you decide which one to work on an post in the end, good luck.

    I think I prefer the first version. It ties better in terms of colors to the rest of the box. This looks good btw. The only thing I'm wondering is if you change the red headline to blue? I want to see how that looks.

    Looks good. I don't know if that 'story' and 'images' lines are really necessary, but they take up a nice space where they are. Maybe get rid of 'story' and move the headline a bit down (and maybe the summary a wee bit up)? And instead of 'images' have some kind of caption instead? Just an idea. I'd try it out as a different version and see if anyone else has anything to say.

    I think it looks great. I know you probably want it to look official but honestly I think all the Nintendo legal guff takes up far too much room to the back which leaves very little for your creativity to try and work with. Obviously it's up to you what you want to do but that's just my opinion. Either way man I think this will turn out awesome.

    Thanks for the feedback, I will try to "clean" all that information.

    I know there is another layout they use now for official Wii U games, but I don't think anyone has made a template of it. I'm looking at my official box for Yoshi's Woolly World and they definitely leave more room now for the back. I could try scanning it in and making a template, though I'm not sure if I can complete it any time soon due to personal things going on with school at the moment.

    ETA: I also found the template: http://etschannel.deviantart.com/art...late-471066135
    Investigating the DA and I can see it's from user EdwardPines from here. He has a lot of template in his gallery.

    My god, that one is beautiful! I did not know that they had a new box (I do not have a WiiU).
    Thanks for the search!

    Tried some new stuff with the extra space (still think there is room for improvement):

    Looks a lot better! Be careful though. The Nintendo logo on the template is overlapped by your Nintendo logo on the front. I'd also probably fill out the "rating specifications" on the back. I'd also consider, now that I'm looking at it, changing "The Forgotten Kingdom" from blue to the same yellow behind the screenshots on the back. It'll tie in better and balance it out.

    Aside from all that, I honestly feel like it's done.

    Thanks for all your feedback! I wasn´t happy with the back, so....

    I think the front is done, but the back now seems a bit too busy. There is a fight in the heirarchy of content due to lack of contrast in size of text, especially now that there is more of it. Could you try scaling the text in the screenshots section a bit down? And maybe upscaling the headline text a bit too? Not too much. The goal is to bring attention from one point to another so it flows well.
