What if Samus Aran fought in WW2?


As seen on: Kotaku, G4tv, and Irrational Games!

 Once again we opted to do a redesign of some of our favorite characters, I somehow ended up in a world where Samus Aran, from Metroid, fought in WW2 for the allies. 

This was a lot of fun, after I got started it was hard to stop which is a great sign. 

I'll post a quick progression later this week. Make sure to check out Carlos V's. entry and check back for more updates as other friends and colleagues  upload their Nintendo/ WW2 mash ups.

Wow this is AMAZING! Thank you for redeeming Samus's bad ass rep!

Alexander said...

good character. I like more your wall_e !!

Sean said...

Um. Considering Nintendo is a Japanese company ... wouldn't all their heroes be fighting FOR Japan, not against them?

Don't get me wrong, it's a great piece of art ... it just doesn't make _sense_ to me, for her to be sporting the American Star-and-bar, instead of Imperial Japan's Rising Sun. said...

Thanks Guys!

Sean: Thanks for the kind words but just to clear things up: Kotaku mis interpreted our original concept.

It was simply to Re-imagine Nintendo characters in a WW2 setting, NOT to draw Nintendo characters from an Imperialist Japanese WW2 perspective.

@sean : I think that's a bit deeper than most people would probably think. Video game characters seem more international to me.

Cads said...

My favorite character of all video games. Thx for this.

Solidus said...

All 3 of these are amazing.

I would love to see Soviet Red Army Mario T-34 Tank pilot(come on red clothed proletariat hero? Its asking to be made!)

Another idea is Link as a US naval officer, he already has great command of boats and other seafaring vessels in Windwaker and Phantom Hourglass. said...

Cads: Thanks for the positive response! The reaction online to this post has been really awesome.

Solidus: These are all great ideas. I toyed around with the idea of doing a Link and Mario so keep an eye out for more in the future!

Make sure to check out the newly created store and pick up a print( or two)
