The Sailor Scouts Don't Look Half Bad As Retro Game Sprites

The Sailor Scouts Don't Look Half Bad as Retro Game Sprites

As I wait out the two-week period between episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal, I often find myself jonesing for my next fix, which leads me to strange places on the internet filled with wonderful things -- like collections of mid-1990s Sailor Moon game sprites.

So if you ever wondered what Sailor Moon and the scouts looked like in 8 and 16-bit perfection, have I got a collection for you.

Of course, there are far more Sailor Moon games than those showcased above. In fact, many more can be found at game sprite archive sites like the Sprite Database and Spriters Resource. So as a concession to those I snubbed, I give you a gif of chibi Sailor Moon falling on her face (from quiz arcade game Quiz Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon.)

    Sailor Moon games always had great quality sprite work. It's a shame they never got the credit they deserved for it.

    Aahh, the arcades, always had the best graphics .

    The Megadrive Beat-'em Up and the Super Famicom JRPG is still one of the best games in the BSSM game library IMHO.

    Honestly props to the old fan translation crew which translated all of the RPG =D

      I remember playing the jRPG, it was fantastic. :)
