Banjo-Kazooie box art cover

It's been a while since my last cover submission, but here it is.
Some time ago there was a contest that I signed up for, and that for one of its rounds we had to redesign an old cover, using new artwork, but I couldn't submit for entering a tests period. Few days ago I started working on this again, and this is the result.

Some sure if a comeback, but I was happy about this design. Critics are welcome, comments are welcome. Rants too, as far as you explain why.

Credit to Indexenos for the inner borders of the template's plastic.

Thanks to TrevOwnz, KoopaDasher and PoppinsDEBO for their critics.

Looks great man. Really did a good job keeping the original look. If you did get this in the comp you would have done well.

Legal information looks perfect. This cover is on a different level of cleanliness, unbelievable. You've got the template down to a science. The way the text wraps around the characters is good too, there's too much stuff on this cover to admire for me to list really.

Dude, what was the process involving being able to match the Japanese Template. Did you basically vector everything yourself?

If you're talking about the legal info, I found some hi-res NTSC-J scan from some Ubisoft game cover and based on that, typed the English part changing the company names and other names, removed the Kinect bits it had, and tried blending the Asian characters in, as the background in the scan was plain white (Thinking about it, those characters look more Chinese than Japanese, but the scan still was NTSC-J), the "Warning" part was directly taken from the scan and then edited, the "Supports Family Settings" logo was vectored, as well as the CERO content descriptors.

Well, we had to recreate an old box art using new artwork (Or something like that) and I liked the old Japanese B-K box.

I think the back could have used a bit of blue but otherwise, a very solid design. Oh, and congrats on the Hall!

Wow, amazing job Manuel! Those Japanese characters add a very nice touch to it! Definitely better than the original box.
