The Spada and Scudo Artist Imagines Nintendo Controllers as Pokémon


If you are a Pokémon fan, then you probably already know James Turner. He has been an artist at Game Freak since 2010, who worked on Pokémon Black and White, X and Y, Sun and Moon, and Ultrasole and Ultraluna. His job is basically to design Pokémon.

His work was greatly appreciated not only by the players but also by the development team, which promoted him to the artistic director for Pokémon Sword and Shield, a pair of titles arriving later this year. In his free time, in any case, Turner likes to draw even more, as evidenced by the beautiful image he shared on his official Twitter profile. The artist has given life to the historic controllers of the Kyoto house, relying on the concept of evolution typical of Pokémon.

The Famicom pad has evolved into that of the super Famicom, exactly as the NES pad has done in the SNES pad in the West. Both, then, have evolved the famous Nintendo 64 three-point controller! Find the nice artwork at the bottom of this news, let us know what you think!

As for Pokémon Sword and Shield, we take the opportunity to remind you that the arrival on the shelves is expected, exclusively for Nintendo Switch, for next November 15th. For the occasion, a special coloring of Switch Lite will also be launched, a console recently announced by the Kyoto company. The two versions of the game will boast exclusive Pokémon and Gym Leaders.
