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.

Well, I thought I'd never see Rover look so irritated and annoyed. he looks kinda off when he's in a negative mood. I'm so used to him putting out a big smile ear to ear, literally.

Also I'm surprised that Shulk or Face Raiders didn't make it in. Sure, Xenoblade didn't really get popular until Smash came along and nobody uses Face Raiders on their 3DS and all..

Thank you very much, friend. I really appreciate your comment.

About the lack of Arceus, there are quite a few (and by few I mean a lot. lol) characters that I regret not adding. Arceus is one of them, but on the other hand there are plenty of Pokemon in this art. lol

That would be insane. To put it in perspective, this artwork, as big as it looks, it has only around 300 characters. Pokemon alone are over 700 by this time and that is before Sun and Moon. And that is just the Pokemon, not counting human characters. Honestly, I don't think is possible to make an artwork like that. Not even in collaboration with other people.
