This animation based on the classic shoot ’em up (shmup), R-Type, is frkin’ awesomesauce

Put a multi-million dollar budget behind it and I’d watch that as a feature length animation at the cinema; seriously.

Nintendo, hire these guys to make any animated movies based on your games for you, because they clearly get it: It’s not about changing what’s great about your games and characters, creating something that’s ultimately an abomination (like the tragedy that was the Super Mario Bros. movie); it’s about embracing all that quirky gaming greatness, being totally true to the source material and being absolutely serious about how you handle it, even when you’re clearly having loads of fun.

You can probably tell I like this animation a lot, and that’s knowing fine well it was obviously made within certain limitations.
