God DAMN are you guys pumped for SSB4 or WHAT. But there’s still three weeks to go until the 3DS version comes out, and months more until the WiiU version!!! WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO IN THE MEAN TIME
hey here’s an idea, let’s make a Smash Bros zine!
☆☆☆THE SMASH BROS ULTIMATE PLAYERS GUIDE☆☆☆
So I spent a large portion of my childhood reading those hastily-published and poorly-researched video game strategy guides (it’s what we did before GameFAQs!). They tended to be full of pretty pictures and incorrect information, and I want to put together a book for SSB4 that is just as pretty and similarly absurd/erroneous.
Specifically, what I’m looking for are illustrations, comics, or text submissions relating — however tangentially — to Smash Brothers! Who are your favorite SSB characters? What character isn’t in SSB4 who TOTALLY SHOULD BE? Can you improve an existing character’s moveset? How about new items or assist trophies? IRL strats for knocking the controller out of your friends’ hands without them realizing you did it? Seriously! Anything!
(Submission guidelines under Read More)
Please send submissions to pseudonymjones at gmail dot com with the subject line: “Smash Bros Ultimate Players Guide”. Submissions should be 5.75 x 8.75 inches (that extra 1/8 inch around will be cut for bleed), 300DPI, CMYK, submitted as a .png or flattened .psd. Include your name and website for the credits! Send me an ask or an email if you have questions or need any help!
Submission deadline is 10/03/2014 (the date of the 3DS launch!), so stop stroking your Wavebird, close that stream of Japanese players having all the fun, and MAKE! SOME! ART!
Two weeks left until the submission deadline/SSB4 3DS release!!! Still plenty of time, unless you’re pouring all your free time into the demo…
A few people have sent me submissions already, which has just got me so pumped to put all this fantastic work together! Thank you so much!
