Lookin' good

Remakes are big business these days – NBA Jam and GoldenEye 007 are just two on the way later this year – but demakes are growing in popularity. These old-school versions of modern franchises are often mocked up just to look awesome, and talented Way of the Pixel member junkboy has a skill to top most.

Created for Swedish gaming magazine Level, games as diverse as Batman: Arkham Asylum, Killzone and Noby Noby Boy have had the 2D treatment, but Nintendo fans will be most impressed by the pixel-perfect recreations of Pikmin, Metroid: Other M, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and more.

Sadly these are still pieces of art rather than playable titles, but they're still beautiful in their own right. Head over to Way of the Pixel to check out more.

3D might be the next big thing for Nintendo, but for its fans, 2D will always be king.
