Here’s a gif from the intro to World Heroes 2 on the NES. No, it has nothing to do with ADK’s beat-em-up of the the same name (stolen logo aside) and yes, that’s Mario, Sonic, Haggar, Chun-Li, Bowser, Goku and Ryu. World Heroes 2 is a bootleg NES fighting game filled with characters from various franchises. It’s terrible. I might write an article about it one day, if I can muster the fortitude to suffer through its broken gameplay, painful music and eye-straining graphics.
Here’s some amazing “artwork” used in an advert for a chain of videogame shops that was in the back of an old Megadrive magazine (I think it was an issue of MegaTech). I love the way Sonic appears to be rejecting the Megadrive with an almost religious hand gesture, but best of all is Blaze’s speech bubble. I have no idea what that accent is supposed to be, but I’m sure it sounds great!
I love this illustration. Lots of personality.
At the big VGJUNK site today: more NES action with Vic Tokai’s tale of a witch who fights robots while simultanously being one of the biggest rip-offs of another game I’ve ever played - Magical Doropie, AKA The Krion Conquest. The source material? I’ll give you a clue, it rhymes with Nega Nan. Check it out here!
Wow, Cool art but dead copy of Space Invaders…
