Nintendo Anthology by Lwiis64 Nintendo Anthology by Lwiis64
This artwork is a tribute to Nintendo. A company who help build the videogame industry and until this day is still revolutionizing the landscape of videogames and creating new exciting experiences for gamers of all ages.

The company who saved the entire videogame home console industry after the North American Videogame Crash of 1983. The company who have given us classic games such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda and Metroid along with modern classics such as Pokémon, Pikmin and Super Smash Bros. The company who have given us iconic characters such as Mario, Pikachu, Link, Samus and Donkey Kong. The company who's innovations include shoulder buttons, control stick, rumble feature, first console 3D platformer, controllable camera, hub worlds, Z-targeting, dual screen/touch screen gameplay, motion controls and 3D gaming without glasses.

A total of 304 characters from the vast history of Nintendo make an appearance in this artwork. Including many recognizable faces such as Mario, Kirby and Link. You'll also find characters that only the older gamers will recognize and then there's characters that only the most dedicated Nintendo fans will be familiar with. There's also a total of 73 items, vehicles, consoles, handhelds and miscellaneous stuff. In addition, 55 third party characters, who’s games have help build the great catalogs that Nintendo consoles have enjoyed throughout it’s history, make an appearance. Retro legends, videogame icons, past rivals, longtime partners and new supporters. They're all here.

So lets give it up for Nintendo. For all the years of videogame entertainment they have given us and the best of wishes for all the years that the future holds. And thanks to all the third party companies who have supported Nintendo throughout the years.

In Pokémon: Jirachi Wishmaker, Jirachi had its powers drained, thus creating a crappy demon from the underground. The demon used his powers to render each tree useless unless Ash is sent from Pallet Town to send it back where it came from. To make matters worse, the demon used his powers to bring/swallow every person into his body, much to Ash's dismay. That demon is Groudon, an ancient Pokémon from the Ruby/Sapphire games. Only Jirachi could send it to the moon. I have that movie on DVD which is made/released by Miramax (thru Buena Vista Distribution Company/The Walt Disney Company) in 2004.

Where in the hell was Quote?
I know he's in the image somewhere, but trying to find him in THIS image is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. XD (never mind, I just found him LOL)

I'm almost tempted to say that there should have been at least one more Cave Story character in here (like Sue, King, Balrog, Curly or Ballos). Always gotta pay tribute to the classics :D

Apart from that, amazing job! :)

Quote was one of the last minute additions and he fills the role of modern third party character from 3DS. His inclusion alone was a stretch so I really don't think another Cave Story character is needed. But thanks for the comment and very glad you liked the picture. Thanks!

 I give it a 9.9999999999... for achieving sheer levels of awesomeness despite not including any characters from Xenoblade Chronicles.

This picture definitely isn't feeling it.
Nor is it his time.
And there aren't any Heropons to save the day.

Thanks for the comment. However, I must remind you that Nintendo is A LOT MORE than Xenoblade.

mowinggummies Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2015
Oh, I totally agree with you about that. However, Xenoblade is, especially these days, a major part of Nintendo. Maybe not as big as Mario or Pokemon, and probably not as much a few years ago when you drew this, but they're still a pretty big deal.

At least I'm not one of those guys who is probably thinking "Why isn't Squid Girl and Steampunk Lincoln in this drawing? They're important, too..."

I absolutely agree. I really regret not putting Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles, Zael from The Last Story and Aeron from Pandora's Tower. Those three games have now become swan songs of the Wii. Specially Xenoblade Chronicles. No doubt that if I ever updated this picture, Shulk would definitely be one of the additions.
