Nintendo ain't gonna do anything for it, so I will.
Today, January 30th marks 30 years since the debut of Popo and Nana, the Ice Climbers!
SURE, the original Ice Climber game wasn't that great, but it has it's share of fans. But the Ice Climbers REALLY made their big break in Super Smash Bros, which took a couple of forgotten characters and made them relevant again.
I have a lot of affection for these characters, and have made a few friends over them. My biggest problem with Smash 4, one that almost killed the entire game for me, is the fact these two aren't in it. It hurt so bad to see them gone, and I don't have high hopes for DLC.
I wanted to reuse my redesigns for the Climbers in this picture (with some tweaks), and everything except the Nintendo Logo and seal were all drawn by me. That's right, that background there? Not a screenshot. Made that all myself.
Popo, Nana, the Condor, the Nintendo logo and official seal all belong to Nintendo. Don't sue.
