Metroid Marvel vs Capcom 2

Metroid Dread is out today – you knew that of course – and that gives us the perfect excuse to showcase the amazing pixel artwork of a talented individual called Kercy.

Kercy has a real skill for turning 3D video game characters into lovely 2D pixel art sprites that wouldn't look out of place in a Capcom fighter like Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and they've been working on a series of Samus Aran-related creations recently:

That's not all, however; Kercy has also produced sprites for Zelda and Bayonetta, and it's striking how authentic these look – it really does feel like they've jumped right out of a Capcom crossover brawler.

With Ryu in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, perhaps some Nintendo characters could go in the other direction? Maybe not, but at least we have Kercy's creations to gaze at.
