James Farr’s latest homemade animated short entitled, Super Smash Wars 3: Return of the Hero, has been released on his YouTube channel. This installment is the last in the three part mash-up series, where Nintendo meets Lucasfilm. What is better than a Smash Bros./Star Wars mash-up?
The protagonist Link Skywalker is at it again, as the viewer experiences a fake gameplay in the Super Smash Wars world. Farr does a great job of finding complimentary Nintendo and Star Wars characters that any fan can appreciate. As a major Star Wars fan, I found myself laughing at the cleverness behind the jokes and references.
These parodies leave the audience wanting to explore this world more. On Farr’s YouTube channel you can find other nerdy parodies that are just as clever. Maybe one day we will be lucky enough to have a video game where these characters can co-exist, but for now we must enjoy what Farr has created for us.
The other Star Wars/Nintendo-Verse mash-ups include:
