Okay, well now I can’t unsee this. Avengers: Infinity War may be an unprecedented achievement in filmmaking, but let’s be real, we’ve seen stories on this scale for decades in video games. Most notably, we’ve found them in classic JRPGs like Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, and Lunar 2: Eternal Blue.
In these stories, we’d always see a group of heroes go up against some insurmountable force that was of an ungodly size. Even better, we’d see them in glorious 16-bit overhead view — with that only changing during the battle sequence, which take place on a generic setting and stage. Imagine how cool it would be to see Avengers take that approach.

Luckily, it looks like the marketing team over in Japan are two steps ahead of us, and have put together a little video that would make SquareSoft proud. Sadly, my only real criticism of this short is that it’s very clear that the models aren’t made using pixels — at least not all of them. As such, the likes of Thanos look more at home on the awful FFVI port for iPhone than they do a genuine SNES game. Little quibbles aside, I think I can get over my geek OCD for just a moment and enjoy what has been put in front of me.
