A Pokémon fan creates part of the game world from the Red and Blue titles in a 3D remake heavily inspired by the style of the originals.
Pokemon has a huge success. Fans around the world have been catching their own lightning mice, fire lizards and other pocket monsters for 25 years now. With the original Red and Green titles released in February 1996, 2021 has been an important year for pokemon, as the company celebrates the 25th anniversary of the games release with a unique set of collectible cards, silver plushies of some iconic Pokemonand a crossover with Converse apparel.
fans of the Pokemon titles have added their own flair to the games and characters they contain for almost as long as they’ve been playing. new art Pokemon or get old Pokemon into something new, to recreations of settings in games in other games such as a player of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, who created the station Pokémon Sword and Shield on their own island. A player of Pokemon however, took things to a new level, recreating the entirety of Pokemon Red and Blue.
YouTuber CodyCantEatThis says he’s spent the last year remastering classic games, like a “cursed” version of fall guys and 3D versions of The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros.. Now CodyCantEatThis has recreated a piece of Pokemon Red and Blues 3D game world. Originally, the YouTuber was streaming his process of modeling the original protagonist Red and the starting location of Pallet Town. Over time and countless hours of planting trees, the game has been crafted in a monochrome style similar to the look of the original games.
fans of Pokemon and CodyCantEatThis have flooded the video with positive responses since it was released a few days ago. Some have compared the remake of Pokemon Red and Blue to the recently released remasters of Pokemon Diamond and pearl. Still, the YouTuber said in the video that they believe the release of pokemon shiny diamond and shiny pearl are more of a “2.5 version”, which does not allow players to experience the game world as much as a full 3D version. That hasn’t stopped many gamers from enjoying brilliant diamond and shiny pearl however, with players spending hundreds of hours in the game, with a player spending that time and not even picking their starter Pokemon.
CodyCantEatThis’ remake of Pokemon Red and Blue isn’t the first remake made in the years since the games were originally released. One id software developer Mark Diaz, who worked on DOOM Eternal, Quake: Champions and DOOM (2016) also used Unity to create Pallet Town and Route 1 from the game. However, there are significant differences between Diaz’s creation and that of the YouTuber, the latter for example has a third person point of view, and lacks color as Diaz’s creation is full of assets and cartoonish colors. It’s a shame for Pokemon fans however that no remake is available for public use.
