The Lands Between has had a 16-bit makeover, as a fan-made demake has reworked the brutal boss-bashing combat of Elden Ring in the style of a classic SNES game.Animation group 64 Bits has reimagined what Elden Ring might have looked like if it was made for Nintendo’s classic console, recreating many of its key environments, characters, and bosses as era-appropriate pixelated sprites.
