The power of nostalgia

GN Version 5.0

Longtime gamers are often curious what their favorite titles from today would look like if they came out decades ago. It's nice to have snazzy graphics and fully orchestrated soundtracks, but sometimes stripping things down to basic visuals and audio lets the gameplay really shine.

Pokemon fan ハヤテ京雲寺 loves Pokemon Sword and Shield, but he couldn't help wonder what the experiences would be like if they were on the Game Boy. Since no one out there had put together an answer to ハヤテ京雲寺's question, he decided to take on the task himself!

If you'd like to see what Pokemon Sword and Shield might have been like on the Game Boy, you can see what ハヤテ京雲寺 cooked up in the video above. Classic Game Boy visuals, but with locations and Pokemon from Sword and Shield. Looks like the perfect mash-up to us!
