Miyazaki’s ‘Spirited Away’ in 8-bit form really feels like an adventure game
Even the sweeping arcade music is spot-on.
The result makes us wish this were a real game we could play.
Seeing Spirited Away structured this way reminds us how good director Hayao Miyazaki is at building the action of his films. The tasks and quests our hero Chihiro has to undertake really do feel like they could be legs on a Nintendo-esque journey.
Now when do we get 8-bit Totoro?
