Kirby’s Best Anime Episode Goes Delightfully Meta with a Massive Reanimated Collab

The Kirby: Right Back at Ya! anime, starring the titular pink puff we all know and love, is known for its occasional bits of satire and self-referential parody. No episode made that clearer than episode 47, “Cartoon Buffoon.” While this episode turned the series’ concept on its head—with King Dedede looking to create his very own cartoon, resulting in a poorly drawn retelling of the first episode—it also gave its audience an inside look on the extensive production process behind making a cartoon.

Hand this already meta episode to eager artists to reanimate from start to finish, and you wind up with a hilarious and delightful collaborative adaptation of a fan favorite episode that makes it worth watching all over again! Check out the Kirby Reanimated Collab in full above.

The project was led by Roya Shahidi, who founded the collab back in 2017 and managed to reign in a massive team consisting of over 300 artists! You can check out the full list of credited artists right here.

On a more somber note, among the artists involved was the late Angelxmikey, who quietly finished his long fight with cystic fibrosis and passed away in his sleep earlier today. We at Gamnesia extend our condolences and deepest sympathies to his wife Merluvli, his family, and his friends in these times.

A Fan’s Nintendo-Themed Take on Star Wars: The Force Awakens Concludes with This Awesome Video

Animator
James Farr has been creating Nintendo-themed parodies of famous pop culture properties for years, and among his most popular videos are reimaginings of the Star Wars films filled with Nintendo characters and references galore. Today he’s finally come out with Part 2 of “The Triforce Awakens,” his parody of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which wraps up the story of Mario as Han Solo, Daisy as Rey, the Animal Crossing villager as Finn, and many more.

It would be quite the challenge to try to pick out every single Nintendo reference in “The Triforce Awakens,” as per usual for Farr’s parody videos. His work features clever use of references from both universes he combines, including sound effects, different art assets, and loads of puns.

If you missed out on Part 1 of “The Triforce Awakens,” you can check that out right here. Farr has also animated Nintendo-themed versions of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Visit his channel if you are into his Nintendo-verse mash-ups!

What do you think about this conclusion? And what would you like to see Farr take on next? Should he create animated versions of the prequel trilogy and
Rogue One? Let us know in the comments below!

Overwatch is Even Cuter Than You Can Imagine When All the Characters are Kitties

We’ve seen the heroes of Overwatch turned into many things by fans since the game’s release, including Pokémon. But why stop at fictional creatures when you can turn the cast into adorable kittens? A couple of fans have done just that, with one artist named Suzuran drawing every hero as a cuddly cat, and a dedicated 3D animator named Dillon Gu who recreated each of the offensive heroes’ personalities in a 3D animation. You can check out the art in the gallery below and the animation in the video above!

A Fan Recreated the Entire Opening of the 80’s TMNT Cartoon in Mario Paint

Mario Paint has been used by fans to create a number of impressive projects over the years, but this one may be one of the coolest and most massive undertakings so far. An avid Mario Painter as well as a fan of the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, Mike Matei sat down and decided to recreate the show’s entire minute-long intro frame-by-frame in the SNES title. According to Matei, each frame required thirty minutes to an hour to recreate, and the entire project took about six months.

Fortunately, that work is done now, and he’s compiled all these frames into a video format complete with a cover of the original title song by James Ronald. You can check above to see the amazing result in its entirety, and if you need to get some idea of just how much effort this took, Matei also uploaded a 47 minute video that shows the full process for just one of these frames.

As someone who grew up on the reruns of this show, this is an awesome blast to the past for me, and I’d love to see him remake more cartoon openings (which he seems open to doing!). Which shows would you like to see recreated like this? Give us your thoughts in the comments!

Fans Created an Opening Sequence for Pokémon GO in the Style of an Animated Series

Pokémon GO has become a hit worldwide, getting millions of downloads and earning millions of dollars for its creator in just a few weeks since launch. Of course, whenever something gets this popular, there will be fans looking to create unique tributes for it, and YouTube channel Channy & Kimberly has done just that. They’ve crafted an “Anime Opening” for the game, giving us an idea of how a hypothetical show based on GO could start off each episode. There are lots of little nods to the game, with scenes showing catching Pokémon or the leaders of the three in-game teams, and it certainly makes me start to wonder what a Pokémon GO anime could be like!

Check above to see it for yourself, and if you like it, make sure you check out the rest of
Channy & Kimberly‘s videos—there are several other animations hosted there based on other games. Would you be interested in seeing more videos like this? Do you think Pokémon GO could ever possibly work as an anime? Give us your thoughts in the comments!

A Japanese Artist Has Created an Amazing Animated Short Based on Metroid

Nintendo has been talking a lot about expanding their brand in recent months, and they’ve been especially interested in expanding into films and movies within the next five years. There are lots of iconic Nintendo characters and franchises to choose from for shows and films, and Metroid is one of the more common requests from fans.

In the absence of an official
Metroid film, fans have been taking up the mantle. Rainfall Films, a talented team with a history of creating short films and trailers based off of popular franchises, released a Metroid short film based on 1960s science fiction movies. Today we have a very different take on Metroid, as Japanese artist and animator Rabbit Machine has created an anime-style Metroid animation. It’s very short, clocking in at just 55 seconds, but it’s a beautiful, action-packed ride that should leave you craving more! You can check it out by clicking above.

An Incredible Fan Animation Turns Undertale’s Mettaton NEO Fight Into a Full-Length Boss Battle

In Undertale, players are given the choice of either showing mercy to the monsters they meet by sparing them, or killing them in order to earn EXP and LV. Going out of one’s way to eliminate each and every single monster in the player character’s path activates the Genocide Route, which then leads towards the most difficult final boss in the game.

Before that final showdown, one last obstacle remains with Mettaton, the showstopping TV star of the Underground—but despite the buildup towards this moment and MTT’s best efforts, the robot is eliminated in one hit even with his new combat-oriented form. Therefore, animator NCHProductions took it upon themselves to show the true power of Mettaton NEO in their own chilling take on a full length battle against the fallen human gone genocidal.

Check out the animation for yourself above, but be be warned because there are obvious spoilers.

Tell us what you thought of
Chara Vs Mettaton NEO in the comments below! Should you crave more MTT-brand goodness, you can also watch Alyssa Gerwig’s Death by Glamour animatic, which faithfully and wonderfully recreates the Neutral Route battle against Mettaton EX, by clicking here.

The Fan-Made Star Fox Animation “A Fox in Space” Releases its First Episode

Nintendo recently released an animated Star Fox short called The Battle Begins, but it’s not the only Star Fox cartoon in the works. A dedicated fan named Matthew Gafford has been working on his Star Fox fan animation project for several years now, and the project pushed ahead even after Nintendo attempted to shut it down.

Gafford had previously announced that he would rename the characters in his series,
A Fox in Space, in order to continue development without interference from Nintendo. However, he has now released the first episode (noting it as a non-profit parody) with the original names in tact. In the first episode, “Don’t Call Me Star Fox,” Fox McCloud has been captured by a group of Venomian soldiers led by Wolf O’Donnell, and is taken to the neutral Sargasso Space Station as per orders from Andross.

Nintendo Took Down the Fan Video That Featured 101 Game Characters Racing in Super Mario Kart

A few months ago we wrote about a fan animation project by YouTuber Hat-Loving Gamer that featured 101 different characters from all across the gaming world racing in Mario Kart. From Nintendo to SEGA characters, the scope of the animation was impressive, but apparently not impressive enough for Nintendo to leave it alone. As you can now see in the above link, Nintendo has recently filed a take-down claim against the video for copyrighted materials. It’s been debated whether Nintendo was in the right for this, as the amount of characters and the fun absurdity of it could be considered a parody, which is legally protected. I personally hope that this will be the last time a project is shut down before Nintendo realizes the difference between IP protection and hurting fan relations.

A Fan Combined Mario Kart With Rocket League in this Awesome Animated Short

Since its initial release on PlayStation 4 and PC over the summer of 2015, the craziness that is Rocket League saw its popularity propelled to newer heights with its high-octane soccer-meets-rocket cars gameplay. The game quickly gained recognition as an eSport through an officially sponsored tournament league and received several accolades from the BAFTA Game Awards yesterday, and with developer Psyonix poised to tear down online barriers between consoles with cross-platform compatibility, the gaming community at large will continue to have fun with Rocket League for years to come.

With such fan fervor behind the game naturally comes with many a dedicated tribute, such as this animation by YouTuber
The Pixel Kingdom.
Super Mario Rocket League mashes together the madness of Rocket League with the familiar cast and mechanics from Nintendo’s own mascot franchise, and you can see the result of this combination above!

An Undertale Fan Made a Showstopping Animation of the Fabulous Battle Against Mettaton EX

Toby Fox’s Undertale hosts a wide cast of quirky and charismatic characters, but none can truly compare to the glitz and glamor of the Underground’s number one television personality, Mettaton. Encountered later in the game as a human-hunting machine, this vain robotic TV star faces off against the player character several times before their final showdown in the CORE.

Artist Alyssa Gerwig tried her hand at a rough storyboard-esque animation of her take on the Mettaton EX boss battle. This project is her first serious try at animation and took her nearly four months to complete, and the result of her hard work is a faithful and brilliant adaptation of Mettaton and the human taking center stage to “Death by Glamour!”

Give it a watch above, but be warned that the animated short contains spoilers to the actual battle.
