Marian (Double Dragon)
I drew the sketch while babysitting my little niece, who was dealing with the cold or flu or whatever it was that knocked everyone out around Christmas 2012. I didn’t have a pic of the sprite, so I drew it from memory and purposefully turned her around to make the pose more interesting. It wasn’t 100% accurate, but still a bit scary that I remembered the pose of that sprite even through a flu-induced brain haze.
From Wikipedia: “The Combatribes is a 1990 beat ‘em Up released for the arcades by Technos Japan Corp (the developers of Renegade and Double Dragon).”
I have enough new pixel art ready for the 12th Anniversary update next week that I can show you something while still leaving some surprises.
This is a scratch-made remake of Chin Taimei from Double Dragon. Those NES game images are what I used as reference. I’d made a jumpkicking sprite edit of Chin long ago (and re-used most of the same colors) that used CvS Joe for an upper body so looked at more Joe sprites to get the size right. I’m still considering some other fixes to it, so it might be a bit better by the time the update hits ScrollBoss on the 19th.
Two minutes of Renegade 3DS gameplay. I know most previews for this import-only 3DS game are mixed, to say the least, but you’ll want to watch this anyway just to hear that remix of River City Ransom’s shop music again.
While I expect hardly anyone will buy this in Japan, I’m crossing my fingers that sales will meet expectations and Arc System Works will greenlight a similar remake for River City Ransom — I’d love to see this motorcycle sequence brought into that potential game.
