What if Sony’s new “PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale” was a 16-bit game from the past? London based designer and illustrator Aled Lewis has the answer to that question, as he’s taken it upon himself to give some of the game’s characters a 16-bit makeover.
Many gamers are excited about Sony’s latest and to celebrate the release of “PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale” Lewis was apparently asked by Sony to dream up three separate works showcasing characters from the brawler in memorable fighting scenes from classic films. “Rocky”, “Reservoir Dogs” and “The Karate Kid” made the cut, but Lewis’ love for the 16-bit era is what makes the artwork so great.
Make sure you head over to Aled Lewis’ Facebook page for a look at the full size artwork and shots of the final product in massive billboard form!
