Classic Nintendo Gameworlds Reimagined As Subway Maps
By Yap Yen, 21 Jan 2016
Washington, D.C.-based graphic designer, Matthew Stevenson has mashed up video games and subway maps in his NES Subway Maps project.
Transforming maps of old-school Nintendo games like Zelda, Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy into a parody of the London Underground, Lisbon Subway, or Tokyo Metro.
His first mash-up was inspired by a pun, when he thought of one of his first NES games, Metroid, and the D.C. Metro map that he is most familiar with. The creative director for D.C.-based branding agency Fathom Creative shares that the best game maps for his art are non-linear in nature, just as subway systems are.
