Modern Classics Reborn on NES Cartridges

Cult classic PlayStation 2 game Okami got a Wii port. It never got a NES version, because that system was well before the game's time. But what if it did?

Website 72pins reckons that the game's 8-bit cartridge would look something like this. It also reckons that you can buy this mock-up for US$20.

Other what-if NES cartridges include God of War, Dead Space, and Shadow of the Colossus. Some, such as Halo and Katamari Damacy, are sold out.

Other cartridges, such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Resident Evil, are forthcoming.

The cartridges do not contain the actual NES versions of the game, but rather, a random playable NES title.

Don't let that stop you from playing NES Killzone—in your head.

DISCUSSION

Not to be THAT guy, but these don't look that great to me. It looks like someone posterized a game cover, then downsampled the image.

I say this because the original game covers to which these are homages have so few colors on their covers, and are so "low rez".

I think "demade" cover art with those features in mind would have looked better.
