Credit to NeoGAF for the plastic.
Thought I might try something different for the tagline this time and have a recurring theme of a different shadow.

The back compared to the front doesn't flow well, maybe because of the typography you chose to use or the arrange of "Becomes" being the overshadow for "Shadow"

The front also has some stuff I didn't enjoy, it seems vague with a few elements shouting out, but I liked what you did with the shadow of Sora being reflected on the chessboard floor and Donald & Gooffy in the background.

Overall, it's a great box art.

OK, fair enough. For the back first, I decided to have the shadow being different to match the the front where Roxas is Sora's shadow. For the font, I guess that's personal choice, fair enough, I have been using Gotham for almost everything recently.
For the front, the vagueness was what I was going for, the way everything is unknown to Sora when he wakes apart from his friends and what his mission still is, hence the cloudiness and the brightness due to the Chamber of Awakening.

@Sarashi I see. I want you to know that I don't play the Kingdom Hearts games, so this may have influenced my reception about your box. You explained some stuff to me, like the reason you went for that vagueness, and the thing about Sora's shadow being Roxas, since (as far as I know) they are connected in some sort of way, and I liked the use of this concept.

This box is not bad, it's truly great, but I though it was important to give you a honest critique.

@Higashi89 Yeah, I know I shouldn't put plot points in the design of the box because that's not what gets people to play it (and if they buy it they probably don't know the story yet).
I'm actually grateful of your honest critique though, as it is quite rare I get one, and I'll keep it in mind and will try to experiment with fonts and those sorts of things next time.

May I add, it's really hard to pull off a Kingdom Hearts cover because it's got to be very simple, not overelaborate with tons of of renders on the front. Official KH covers always have a single piece of artwork on the front, so fan artists usually end up being either completely unoriginal (using a seen-it-a-million-times artwork) or incredibly clumsy and heavy-handed.

Yours looks just fine, great work.

The typography on the back is well done, Everything is composed equally and accordingly. Nice job on this one.

The front is flawless, probably the best front cover I've seen on this site.
