If you’ve been wondering what Bethesda has been working on – it’s not Skyrim. Instead they’ve demade Fallout 3 into an old school Japanese RPG.
Better yet, you can actually play it!! If you can read Japanese . . .
Here’s what the BethBlog had to say:
What would Fallout look like if it had been made in 1987 by a Japanese development studio? Our scientists have answered that question, taking over the Japanese Fallout website with an 8-bit version of the Capital Wasteland.
Just like that import copy of Final Fantasy 5 you nabbed in the 90s, this game is Japanese language-only. Fortunately, it’s still amusing to gaze at the pixelated approximations of super mutants and the like. Here’s a direct link right to the game; no cartridge-cleaning required.
Sooo, yeah. Go play it – then come back here and tell us what it says. I can’t read Japanese – but I’m pretty sure it says, “War . . . War Never Changes”
Also, how come we don’t get an American version of this sweet looking demake? What gives!?
