To celebrate the release of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale designer, illustrator and life-long gamer Aled Lewis has combined 15 years’ worth of Sony’s most-loved mascots with famous scenes from iconic movies with a trio of special works entitled ‘The Challengers Appear’.
‘I was thrilled to be asked to design three pieces for PS All-Stars Battle Royale,’ he said. ‘I’ve always been an avid video game player and a huge fan of the 8-Bit look of the early generations of games. The pixelated designs as a kid allowed for your mind to wander and offer scope for what the characters might really look like. In keeping with this and in appreciation for the original game artists I wanted to use this style when creating these iconic images.’

- Reservoir Dogs: Jak & Daxter get the Tarintino treatment as one of the most famous scenes from film
- The Karate Kid: God of War’s Kratos faces LittleBigPlanet’s Sackboy in the final of the All Valley Karate Tournament
To see the artwork in its larger than life setting, the Karate Kid artwork is on show on Great Eastern Street in East London, above Child of Jago as a giant billboard from the 19th–26th November.
PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale will be released on the 23rd November and is available as a ‘cross-play’ title on both PS3 and PS Vita.
