Studio Ghibli's Princess Mononoke remade in 8-bit

"They've attempted to turn Studio Ghibli's stunning artwork into an 8-bit game?!"

We were as concerned as you were - how could the magical vistas and glorious character art of Princess Mononoke ever be recreated in pixelated form?

But we needn't have worried. The team at 8-bit-obsessed CineFix know what they're doing, and their latest work is another gamified masterpiece.

The story of Ashitaka's plight in the battle between the forest gods and Tatara converts to an arcade experience with surprising clarity: there are boss battles, chase sequences and heaps of dramatic dialogue. It's like an old school Final Fantasy game, with even stranger monsters.

Alas, you can't play it. The forest gods aren't that kind.
