Today on Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear #21 it’s a week of very bizarre but cool combinations and crossovers. The SNES controller is put to use on your head rather than on your hands, Street Fighter meets Disney’s Lilo & Stitch, and the 16-bit world clashes with our own. I don’t know what’s going on anymore, but it’s brilliant!
If you’re going to go ahead and cut apart your old, classic SNES controller, you better have a damn good reason for it. Thankfully, YouTube user lyberty5 did, as he/she is a professional modder.
Of all of his/her videos, this video of is perhaps one of the most impressive. Cutting out the circular sections of a SNES controller, with the buttons and D-Pad intact, they are used for each ear. While lyberty5 didn’t go into specifics, the description says “The buttons are still functional”. Imagine turning up your volume with a D-Pad, or turning on/off with the A button! You can watch the entire building process in the video below, with great music to boot.
Street Fighter X Lilo & Stitch
Street Fighter has flirted with a lot of other franchises in the past. It pumped fists in Street Fighter X Tekken, went head-to-head with the Blue Bomber in Street Fighter X Mega Man, and even collaborated in a Hello Kitty plush range. Now, Deviantart user ArtistAbe introduces the classic fighting series giant to… Lilo & Stitch?
Hey, why not? Especially when you see how great and adorable the end result is. Disney’s characters are all dressed up as the Street Fighter gang, and it’s pretty impressive. Let’s hope Stitch doesn’t really Hadouken Lilo in the face though.
16 Bit Meets Real Life
The 16-bit era is still so beautiful today, with it’s vibrant colours and detailed art which pushed the technological limits at the time. How would it look if it clashed with some beautiful locales in the real world? DeviantART user Victor Sauron and fellow artist Glauber Tanaka went to find out, and the answer is great!
There’s a ton of art here with a large range of variety. Link clashes swords outside a castle, DK and Diddy stroll in the woods, and a fiece Pokemon battle between Gyarados and Kyrogre in the harsh seas.
