On Emergency Heroes' graphical style


In some screens, Emergency Heroes looks very anime-like -- especially when you can see the bizarre details of the crazy, futuristic emergency vehicles. It's a somewhat more cartoony take on the F-Zero GX-style of racer. But in screens like the one above, the texture-free, shaded environmental elements and angular vehicles remind us more of Killer 7 than anything else.

That doesn't really mean Heroes has anything to do with those games, but come on -- who hasn't wanted to turn off of the track in F-Zero or Wipeout to go put out a fire, or respond to domestic disputes in Killer 7. Oh, right, nobody. We don't really know where we were going with this, either.
