Suddenly I have the urge to bust out my old school Nintendo

If only all movie-licensed games were this accurate for the old 8-bit Nintendo video game system.

I can’t even hazard a guess as to how this was done, but over on YouTube, CineFix has posted a fantastic 8-bit homage video to G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and how the licensed game for that film might look on your old Nintendo Entertainment System. The results, as one might imagine, are spectacular, and amazingly accurate.  From the looks of it, they cobbled together some existing game footage and tweaked the visuals to match the film look and feel.  Pretty awesome.

Watch game play as either Duke, Roadblock, Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, or Joe Colton. Unfortunately this is just a video and not an actual playable game, but even as a video, it’s pretty amazing. Check it out on YouTube and also embedded below. Thanks to the Regeekery Podcast on Twitter and Comic Book Movie for the heads up.

  1. Hmmm… Rush’n Attack for first two. A lot of Ninja Gaiden for the Snake Eyes stuff. Pretty fun!
