Premier League clubs get Nintendo treatment

Filed: Thursday, 28th September 2017
By: Staff Writer

The 20 Premier League clubs have had their crests re-imagined - based on levels from Nintendo's Mario World.

Designed by @oldschoolpublishing, the video game-inspired designs have been released to coincide with the start of the 2017/18 campaign, which kicked off last month.

As you can see from the image below, West Ham's crest is a mash-up of the club's new design and the game's 'Hammer Brothers'* - turtle-inspired characters called Koopas (see above), who throw hammers at the player as you attempt to circumnavigate the levels.

What are your favourites Mario-inspired crests from the following designs? And what other video game characters do you think would fit in well at West Ham? Let us know in the Comments section below!

* The Hammer Bros first appeared in Super Mario Bros, released on the NES back in 1985. They are larger than regular Koopas, wear helmets and have been described as "elite members of Bowser's Koopa Troop".
