Original ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy Reimagined As An 8-Bit Video Game

If you were charmed by the 8-bit retelling of Mad Max: Fury Road, you’re going to love this: the original Star Wars trilogy is next to get the 8-Bit Cinema treatment.

The talents at CineFix worked their magic to incorporate some of the most iconic scenes from A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi into retro video game palettes. It’s hardly surprising that it works so well – rescuing a princess and battling the Big Bad is about as classic as a video game plot gets. More surprising is how well John Williams’ legendary score holds up, even as an 8-bit soundtrack.

Stay tuned through for the end for a priceless dig at the Star Wars prequels.
