'Pokemon Sword and Shield' Game Boy Color Animation

Some of you might have wondered how some of the latest "Pokemon" gaming titles released on the modern handheld gaming console, the Nintendo Switch, would look if they were instead released during the glory days of the Game Boy Color.

Previously, we could only imagine the pixel animation of these modern Pokemon games in our heads. This time around, however, someone made it a reality by recreating the "Pokemon Sword & Shield" to flaunt a Game Boy Color look.

Pixel Artist's Pokemon Redesign

Per the news story by Nintendo Life, the pixel artist, Sindorman, went the extra mile by using his skills in Adobe Photoshop to completely redesign the 2019 Pokemon game to make it look as if it was released more than two decades ago.

Sindorman went on to share the pixel look of the "Sword & Shield" in an 11-second video on Twitter, wherein he recreated the early parts of the Nintendo Switch game into pixel art.

According to the report by Nintendo Enthusiast, the pixel animation video on Twitter featured the part of the "Sword & Shield" where the player would choose their starter Pokemon.

In the 90s-inspired pixel animation video of the game, Sindorman was seen choosing his starter Pokemon in the Galar region. It further flaunted the adorable pixel art looks of Grooky, Scorbunny, and Sobble.

On top of that, the pixel artist also stuffed a Game Boy remix of the theme song of the "Pokemon Sword & Shield," which, in turn, gave a more 90s vibe to the redesign of its animation.
