ONM Remembered – #253

“For years he has tried to protect it from Gruntilda’s evil magic, but it’s about to come under attack.”

from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 69 (June 1998)

A beautiful splash image for Banjo-Kazooie. I keep griping about how we never see big images like this anywhere, and I wonder if the reason why is because it gives page designers less work to do. Why bother making a big image when you can keep some amateur designers occupied for a few hours by letting them play around with individual assets? And unless you dump it in a strategy guide, where else is a glamorous image like this going to see use?
Still going to mope about it, though. Gotta mope about something.
