"From a world where real men fight with Helium!"

A quick concept of Balloon Fighter (I like to call him Bruno) for BSSB.

I always imagined Balloon Fight taking place in a WW2 type setting, where helium-3 has be come the power source of the world.

Of course, you can't just make stuff up about established characters in these kind of things.

I saw the 3D rendition of him, and it is AWESOME! This concept art is great, too!

If Balloon Fight was to be re-imagined in a similar fashion to Donkey Kong Country or Kid Icarus: Uprising, it would be cool to see Art-Deco and dieselpunk-ish elements to be incorporated.

I feel like Nintendo has more of a smorgasbord of characters and worlds in the NES era alone that they could expand upon in today's times than they realize. I know business and industry go for what sells the most (i.e. Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, etc.), but games such as Balloon Fight, StarTropics, etc. leave a lot open for creativity and uniqueness for Nintendo to just pass up.

Lots of older Nintendo franchises could be renewed in interesting ways I think.

Pretty Interesting background for Balloon Fight(more credible is ww1 with no planes.. like an early one?), and very good desing for the 'Bruno' was pretty well make his balloon and he has a face of a soldier.

Very good work Joe
