Bethesda’s released “an 8-bit version of the Capital Wasteland” in Japanese. You can even play it, should you feel the need.

There’s not a lot we can say about this. So the people behind this blocky, incomprehensible project can do it for us:

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.

Go on. Prove how “hardcore” you are.
