Easiest way is probably making a new document in photoshop with a DPI of at least 300. Then just paste whatever you want in, Ctrl+T, set resizing mode to Nearest Neighbor and blow up to whatever size you want.

Now that version of Bayonetta I'd support over the actual one. And retro MGR looks amazing. Wish developers made retro versions of their games as unlockable content.

I hear ya. Most of my demakes posted here were made for a gaming mag, and they obviously preferred images in portrait so they could go on one page, rather than a spread. I thought it was fine for some of them, like the RE5 one, where the arcade version of MERCS (also by Capcom) was played on a vertical screen.

Also I can't believe people keep discovering this stuff, years after the fact. Cool though, very flattering!

The only other actual demake I can think of is BAttle arena Toshinden on the gameboy. But then we get into the area of games that got Demake ports to portable/mobile/etc...or Nes ports of arcade games like TMNT2 the arcade game

Nothing's a compelling case for 3D for you because you think of 3D itself as some sort of crippling flaw.

Although I find it strange you think Mario 64 is the only decent 3D Mario when it's the least like the 2D games.

I went with the Magitek Armor not only because it was a mech, but because Xenoblades director Tetsuya Takahashi also designed it when he was working at Squaresoft during the 90s.

The background and Magitek Armor sprite are only rips, everything else is completely custom.

How? The last Metroid game was a cutscene-bloated linear 3D action title.

People want a new Metroid game in HD hand drawn art instead of sprites or polygons...of course that would probably be as divisive as Other M being 2d esque from Primes 3d FPS

Nothing about Other M is 2D-esque other than the enemy design and plot being ripped off from Fusion.
