It's kinda nuts that Nintendo isn't doing more real 2D games with their IP.

Either pixel art or a more modern style (seriously, they should just hire that Orioto dude).

2D Metroid will be announced at E3.

Believe!

It won't happen. Or will be that 2.5D crap.

Those 2 Dark Souls ones are making me wish a 2d remake of the game did exist. Oh, if only I could be so flatly pixellated...

The Super Mario Galaxy one is also amazing, though it gives me more a GBA vibe than a SNES one.

A lot of these are not very authentic in their use of color and resolutions, plus making one single fake screen is way easier than making a game, obviously :P

Not really, there was a considerable amount of beautiful sprite work in the early 90s, especially if you include arcade machines.

Too damn awesome. Giving me like Super Castlevania vibes all throughout this. As an old (school) gamer, these demakes and 8-16 bit art styles have me drooling, and yet so so sad that it will never happen.

There have been some nice looking KS projects lately. I can imagine really nice pixel 'retro' looking games becoming a trend this gen. Maybe not for old franchises, but who knows. The unexpected announcement of an existing series in a similar art style would be fun.
