We created two 'super' animations for Clash Royale!
We've been working with Supercell for a long time now, and it's been as fun as you'd think it'd be. In one of our latest projects together, they reached out to us to create two Clash Royale animations in a 'super' series to announce the release of their latest cards. They needed creativity, story, and craft - and we delivered.
The Super Witch was the second ‘Super’ card that was released in-game for Clash Royale. Waste teamed up with Supercell to create an ‘Origin Story’ to uncover how the Super Witch was created.
This gave Waste the unique opportunity to create in-game lore and explore how this character came to be. Let's just say it really got our creative juices flowing.
So here's the story: The Witch, Night Witch, and Mother Witch cast a spell which forged the crack in the Spell Valley Arena, and from that the Super Witch emerged. But figuring out the narrative was only one part of the process - using Frame by Frame animation, we were able to bring this story to life.
This animation garnered over 1.2 million views on YouTube, and got the community reeling. One of the most liked comments was 'At this point I would just be in awe of how well the Supercell animation, sound design and etc done this.'
We're pretty happy with that.
Super Mini P.E.K.K.A.
Following on from the success of the Super Witch animation, Waste were tasked with creating another Origin Story for the third ‘Super’ card released in-game: the Super Mini P.E.K.K.A.
Using Frame by Frame animation again, we were able to tell the story of Mini P.E.K.K.A. eating a radioactive Pancake, which transformed him into the Super Mini P.E.K.K.A. We leant heavily on an Anime style for this animation, which allowed for dynamic fight scenes and spine-tingling visuals.
This little animation garnered over 700k views on YouTube. Never underestimate the power of a good pancake.
