YouTube’s ‘Bitplex’ has released an incredible video, showing what a re-imagined 3D version of the classic 2D fighter, Mortal Kombat 2, could have looked like. Bitplex used sprites and screenshots of the game to extrude various components and create a true 3D environment from a static image.
The process has taken him over 2 months of hard work to complete and it looks retro-amazing. In fact, this reminded me of the NES emulator that turned all NES 2D games into 3D games.
As a bonus, we’ve also included below a second video showing a re-imagined 3D version of the classic 1989 Prince of Persia.
