Simply in time for Star Wars Day, Irish pixel artist and indie sport developer Shoehead debuted 9 pleasant mock-up photographs of a non-existent Sport Boy Colour sport referred to as Star Wars: Luke’s Awakening. It is a fan tribute that melds the design sensibilities of the 1993 Sport Boy traditional Zelda: Hyperlink’s Awakening with the storyline of the unique Star Wars trilogy.

Within the pixel artwork, Shoehead depicts a title display and eight key scenes that replicate vital occasions in A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Again, and Return of the Jedi. The scenes embody watching the “Assist me, Obi-Wan Kenobi” sequence with the Jedi grasp, an encounter with a Wampa on Hoth, a Darth Vader boss battle, evading the Rancor monster, getting zapped by the Emperor, and seeing the Drive ghosts of Anakin, Yoda, and Obi-Wan on the finish of Return of the Jedi.

The pictures abound with pleasant particulars, akin to decisions of weapons acceptable for every scene and the way Shoehead completely tailored the “chibi” model of Zelda’s Sport Boy adventures to Star Wars.
