Artist Daniel Cortes has completed a painstaking project to depict the entire roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in an aesthetic reminiscent of 1930s animation – perhaps more commonly known as the “Rubber Hose” style – and recently popularized by Studio MDHR’s platformer, Cuphead.
“After many months, and over 120 characters drawn, here’s every single #SmashBrosUltimate character in a style inspired by #Cuphead/ #Rubberhose/ #1930sCartoons!! Everyone is Here!!” announced Cortes on Twitter. “Thank you guys so much for support throughout this project, can’t wait to share more in the future!”
The incredible image features well over 100 characters, representing the entirety of the roster from Nintendo’s popular fighting title, including alternate skins and Mii cosplay characters. From Mario to Jigglypuff, Sans to Solid Snake, Joker to Wii Fit Trainer, “Everyone is Here” in this colorful and lively banner – a real who’s who of gaming.
Cortes has noted that they will update their artwork with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s two remaining DLC characters once they are finally revealed. In the meantime, enjoy picking out your favorite characters in the full image. Everyone looks fantastic, but I think Wendy O. is my favorite here… or Fox McCloud… or Bayonetta… Or…
