If Swapnote’s mascot Nikki had a cameo in a 2D game — and I really hope Nintendo’s in-house and second-party development teams find excuses to make this happen — she’d probably look a lot like this sprite!
Unofficial sprite modification of Cave Story’s Gravekeeper, created by Sovan Jedi while discussing the addition of even more detail to Nicalis’ updated sprites. Pixel’s original Gravekeeper sprite is shown in the center.
Sovan Jedi’s comments on the experiment:
“While I do think they would be quite nice with more rounded shading and more colours as on the right, it lacks its particular style of the high-contrast low-colour variants, and that’s partly what makes the game so appealing in its retro graphics.”
Since we’re talking about the enhanced graphics for Nicalis’ forthcoming Cave Story WiiWare release, if you haven’t seen it yet, JC secured an exclusive preview of Sue Sakamoto’s sprite from the developer.
