Hats off

Forget for a moment that Kid Icarus: Uprising is one of the best displays yet of the 3DS console's stereoscopic screen, and imagine it existing in an altogether simpler time: the 1990s. Talented pixel artist jmatchead (via Pixel Art Guild) has done just that, creating two SNES-style illustrations of Pit's new adventure.

Both images capture the movement and pastel palette of Project Sora's 3DS title and look pretty excellent in the process. So much so, in fact, we almost wish Pit had stayed in two dimensions.
