I've been waiting for news on this game and since Nintendo's revealing, I've become even more excited for it. So, to put my waiting a bit at ease, I created this box. Hopefully you all enjoy it!

Credits:
Cerium for the Nintendo Logo
Nintendo for the official images
The Cover Project for the Wii Temp

I rendered the Link on the front out of the teaser trailer for the game.
The background images and designs are all done by me.

EDIT: Found a typo and I plan on uploading Version 2 in 3D

Seriously, this new art style sucks. It's an ok box - 3.5/5

Updated. Fixed the typo and rendered the box in 3D using Imandix.

Version 1 is essentially the same, but much larger and with a typo, so if you appreciate looking at the finer details of things, Version 1 is for you.

Gameninja: Thanks for the comment - is there anything you'd like to see me change? And I'm not too big a fan of the cel-shaded style; however, Nintendo seems proud of it.

Really good work. I'm especially fond of the back layout.

The art style is quite good, I think. I'm personally happy that they went with it, as its a mix between TP + WW.

#3, well, the only thing I don't like is that the front is way too empty for me. Maybe enlargen the Link and add other characters, maybe Twilight Princess editied and Wind Waker characters that aren't too cartoony?

I'm not a Zelda fan, but just one query. I think the way you used "A Link to the Future", but didn't they say this would be set years before the other quests?

Thanks everyone for the comments and favs!

#5 - I got the back image of Link and the SS logo from Nintendo's website. The Link on the front I rendered from the SS video - I'll check and see if I have the original.

#6 - I'll see what I can do with the front.

#8 - Nintendo's infosheet at E3 used the phrase "A Link to the Future" to describe their new direction in The Legend of Zelda series in terms of gameplay and style, which is what I was trying to go for on the box. Perhaps I should change it.

For what little official imagery we have so far, it's not half bad. Even as a final boxart, a few tweaks and it would be ready to go.

Nice box, by the way. my only gripe is the Link to the Future.
