To date, there isn’t a 16-bit fighting game featuring historically-important science people, but if there were, it might look a little something… a-like-a dis-a.
With the recent release of Street Fighter V and the impending release of Mortal Kombat XL, people are (I assume) in the midst of a fighting-game frenzy. Artist Diego Sanchez has created a whole host of animated sprites featuring types like Charles Darwin, Stephen Hawking and Marie Curie that include special attacks based on their theories, discoveries, and historical importance! Ain’t that something?
