i do hope mario finally totes the gun he was intended to have since smb1
to no scope some fuckers and make pools of blood and gore rain all over the mushroom kingdom in super mario odyssey 2: back 2 tha hood
Yeah I honestly think that the fuckton of weird shading was probably done because and don't quote me on this!
A:That's how they would of looked if the NES could display more than 3 color for each sprite/tile. Unlike the SNES which can display 15 color for each sprite. (BG tiles vary tremendously.)
B:It's done to make use of the immense color variation the SNES has as listed above.
But I honestly don't know why but I honestly love the sprites of SMB1 all-stars much more than the original. But yeah the NES ones are still nice and have sort of a crude and rough charm to it. But some of the SNES ones look cuter, for example the Koopas look adorable. Exept the lava tiles! I honestly do not like those at all! Also peach looks like the way she does in SMB2 and I hate THOSE sprites from SMB2 all-stara even MORE!!!!
Just seeing them CONSTANTLY and I mean CONSTANTLY
used in newgrounds animations back in the day! Just makes me absolutely loathe those crappy wretched and abhorrently hideous sprites! I would have much preferred they make the sprites of peach look like the one from SMB1(NES) or at least SMW or... Something? But that's all I had to say...
