April O’Neil was added to the TMNT gallery and Emma Frost (the White Queen) was added to the Marvel gallery. Both characters have been added to the VS Maker and GroupShot GFX Generators. Speaking of the generators…

All four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles now have SFA3 portraits.

One more thing:

the improved Detective Comics #27 sprite is now in the DC Gallery.

edit: along with forgetting to mention that I’d updated the Crime Fighters entry in the Game Index last week, this week’s update adds a few more sprites, including the third boss’ intro and the seventh boss’ tribute to Platoon.

  1. My gamer “OCD” kicked in when Leo’s 1P name and Raph’s 2P name have interchanged colors. :))

    Amazing comic book covers as always (yay Emma Frost!) as well as the Batman cover recreation!

  2. Good pick, Shadi – I’m surprised I didn’t notice something like that!

    Case of the missing 80s Figures:

    While having fun with the new TMNT portraits, I found that their Playmates-style sprites are not available, in the vs mode generator.

    Are they not supposed to be?

    At any rate, neither are He-Man or Jem.

  3. Shadi: Believe it or not, I was going to switch it so that the colors matched, but I thought it’d stand out even more if the colors were mismatched like that. I’m glad to see someone caught that! As for the comics, April’s choice was a no-brainer (TF-Tournament Fighters SNES), but Emma’s BG, the D&D SoM intro, was a lucky find.

    Eddie: Thanks for the heads-up on all this! I renamed a ton of character data files for sorting reasons and I missed adding the renamed files to the site. The TMNT were supposed to get palette upgrades, but never got around to it. I just added those sprites and the missing toy heroes.
