What if Studio Ghibli had made also made games for the NES? Well, first off, it would've been pretty magical. Second off, you don't have to wonder because somebody's saved you the effort of picturing it or even attempting anything of the sort.

Filmmaker David Dutton has been creating 8-bit versions of famous films for some time now under the guise of 8-Bit Cinema, and has covered a lot of iconic cinema so far, including The Shining, District 9, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and Blade Runner. So where next?

Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, of course. Dutton has given these two Hayao Miyazaki-directed Ghibli gems an 8-bit do-over that will leave fans foaming at the mouth and probably demanding that he get together a team, contact the studio, and get the licensing to actually create these as games. Because they look that good. If you like pixel art, and you like Ghibli, you'll love this.

I want to play, I want to play!
