Game Master R-TYPE Anime Short (Video)
This is an awesome tribute to 90s anime and a classic arcade game. OtaKing77077 is back at it again with his unique stylized animation this time featuring the classic side scrolling shooter R-TYPE. If his animation looks familiar then that’s probably because you recognize it from the anime style short TIE Fighter. If you haven’t seen that one either or just want to re-watch it then just click here to check it out. I highly recommend that you do especially if you are a Star Wars fan.
OtaKing77077 had been teasing fans with animated images earlier in the year and honestly I didn’t expect the full video to be out so quickly. You can tell that this is a labor of love and it definitely turned out bad ass. The animation is amazing as usual and this one actually has dialog. Again I was a bit surprised that the dialog didn’t turn out half bad. Here is the description taken from the video’s YouTube page; Sucked into one of the toughest video games around, one man has to fight for his life – and the high score!
All in all this is another awesome and entertaining piece of work created by a very talented artist. The end of the animation is left open ended with the two main characters standing in an arcade and wondering what other video games they might be able to enter into. Personally I can’t wait to see what other classic games he covers. In the background of the arcade you can see Samus from Metroid and Master Chief from the Halo series. Possible clues to his next projects maybe? Only time will tell.
