We’ve never seen a true, mainline 3D Pokemon game on a Nintendo console. Maybe we never will.
And that’s where environment artist Evan Liaw comes in. Liaw, who previously worked on Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, has recreated one area from the series in a modern-looking 3D world. Liaw made a number of Pokemon Center images, all of which are rendered in UDK.
Photos of his efforts can be found in the gallery above.
