With soon 90 fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a fan decides to take on the colossal task of recreating every Minecraft character.
Nintendo is out Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in December 2018, and it has since become one of the most popular games on Nintendo Switch and the best-selling fighting game of all time. One of the reasons for this immense success was the impressive lineup of fighters that players had to choose from. Recently, a fan wanted to pay tribute to the fighters found in the game by recreating them in a Minecraft world.
In a post on Reddit, a user known as PaddyTheLegend16 shared a video of his latest creation in Minecraft. In the music video, the creator revealed that they made the 90 fighters of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. One of the highlights of the design was that the artist chose a pixel art style for each character except Steve. They decided to make Steve look like he looked in Minecraft instead of. Additionally, the video served as a timeline for the Smash series, as the artist started with the original roster of fighters and progressed to the more recent additions. They even included Sora from Hearts of the kingdom series.
Since the game was released, Minecraft players have made many amazing creations. However, this new artwork from PaddyTheLegend16 takes fandom to a new level. With all 90 characters on the roster (including Sora), the devotion the creator put into creating these sprites was impressive. While the artist didn’t reveal how many hours it took to create each character, it was obvious from the amount of detail visible on the models that the project took a long time.
This new creation from PaddyTheLegend16 has become popular with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate community on Reddit. With over 1,300 upvotes, fans were in awe of the amount of work the artist put into the designs of the fighters. While many appreciated the design choices for each character sprite, some wanted the creator to continue with the project and add variant skins, such as the Koopalings and Alph. Plus, many liked that Steve looked like what he does in Minecraft instead of being a 2D sprite like the other characters.
This recreation of each character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate comes as Nintendo recently announced Sora to Kingdom Hearts was getting to the fighting game. The latest DLC fighter, the character was revealed during a video presentation on October 5 hosted by Masahiro Sakurai. Players can check out Sora in Ultimate smash starting October 18, but admiring this art could be a good way to kill time until its release.
It’s impressive to see fans recreate iconic characters in other games. With the completion of all 90 Smash fighters, it will be interesting to see if PaddyTheLegend16 decides to recreate even more Nintendo characters in Minecraft moving forward.
