Marvel’s latest movie has certainly delivered on the promise of being the biggest thing ever. In the excitement surrounding Infinity War, Youtubers have re-imagined fight scenes from the trailers into the classic form of an old school Japanese RPG video game.
Think early Final Fantasy games here:
We get to see Thanos taking on various Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, plus little versions of Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Star-Lord, Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, and Black Widow. Note the attention to detail… The Cap’s got his new Wakandan shield, Doc Strange has some really high Mana stats as the squad’s best wizard. I’m not sure it makes sense for Star-Lord to have the highest HP, I mean that would be Iron Man for that match right? Not much of a spoiler here, but this little video displays a pretty dire situation for the Avengers as Thanos pretty much lays waste to everyone.
We’ve also seen 8-bit versions of the original trailer.
It makes me think of the whole thing as an 80’s side-scrolling punch-em up, like Battletoads or Double Dragon.
