Anyone old enough to remember the days of gaming magazines will without a doubt recognize this old style of ad, which featured video game elements plastered into real life. To celebrate the release of Splatoon 3, Artist KemmoAdo created a fake ad that Splatoon 3 could have received back in the day.
Kemmo didn’t stop there, making ads for other Switch classics such as Metroid Dread, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Kemmo also inspired another user Alayna to make their own new “old” ad in this same style for Super Mario Odyssey.
While this probably won’t be the grand return of this style of marketing, it’s been fun seeing ads for what these games may have looked like if they had been released long ago. Here’s hoping Kemmo and Alayna continue with this trend inspiring even more artists to give this technique a go.
