Dressing Super Mario: Nintendo 8-Bit Virtual Model Kits

One of my favorite subjects to write about here on Bit Rebels is the 8-bit style of graphics. It’s such a retro thing to me (and to millions more, I am sure) and whenever I get the chance, I try to position myself to come across these gems. However, what I have discovered is that there are two kinds of 8-bit graphics really. One is of course the one we are all used to from the Nintendo NES console and alike. The second is, as I call it, the “modern 8-bit” graphics style. This one is particularly interesting since it is the new way of portraying the old. It might sound a little confusing at first, but it’s rather simple.

What I am talking about is, for example, Minecraft. The game is based upon the retro 8-bit graphics; however, they use dynamic lighting and it’s done in first person 3d. This makes the whole thing a new breed of 8-bit graphics. It’s when you really dig into the old that you know 8-bit graphics are here to stay, for good. Ty Lettau knows exactly what I am talking about I am sure. He’s created something that I think every ’80s gaming geek will appreciate.

It’s the Nintendo NES 8-bit click-out character set. Basically, it’s three sets of legendary retro characters that you are now able to dress the way that you want to, all in the 8-bit style of course. The sets are uber complete, and if there is anything missing, I am sure you will be able to create those small trinkets yourself. After all, it’s all about 8-bit, which is probably the easiest of graphics to create. As I mentioned in the beginning, I love stuff like this, and I just keep checking these out. The starter kits include Super Mario, Link and Samus.
