The only thing that would have to be considered is that this style also SCREAMS for more animation phases than what we were used to back then - And more animation = more time = more money. Especially character animation would take a much longer time than the typical 16bit 2d stuff. That's why going with 3d and post processing the rendered sprites would make a hell of a lot of sense. Still, that guy said he often needed 30 hours for each of these paintings - 30 hours for one layout! Of course you could reuse a bit of stuff, but that's still not very efficient.

Still, with todays tools and a good pipeline / workflow I don't see any reason why this stuff shouldn't be possible. The question is rather whether or not it's feasible for what one's going to do.

Yes, you are right. And for doing smooth animations you need more frames too = more RAM to eat. 3d prerendered animations with motion blur/bone system can help too.

How important do you think video game women are to kids' perspectives on gender?
I was thinking the other day about Chun Li in the Street Fighter games. She was really a rather breakthrough character, in that she was the first one (so far as I know) to be a hero rather than damsel. Moreover, she was not created as an inferior fighter to the males. Of the 8 original characters, she was the fastest fighter (hence the one I was the best at till I got to play Vega.

Samus was a bit of a ploy tho, you didn't know he was a she until you beat the game or some friend told you/gave you a mysterious "cheat code" and didn't say what it did
