A huge Elden Ring fan has decided to take FromSoftware’s RPG back to the retro days and make a complete demake version on the Game Boy console. The game will also work on official hardware.
According to Twitch streamer Shintendo, the demake version of the game will be developed in GB Studio 3.0 - a software where people can make custom games for the Game Boy.
Shintendo also streamed the game's development on their Twitch channel, shintendoTV. They're not sure if they'll be able to cover up the entire world of Elden Ring in their creation, but Shintendo plans to atleast create Limgrave's opening area.
“I haven’t decided on the scope yet, but I am at least hoping to finish [the] Limgrave area by the end of May,” added Shintendo. The updates for the development will be kept posted in their YouTube channel.
The Game Boy version will also include the original characters and locations in the game such as Melina, who will be encountered in the Church of Elleh asking “No maidens?”.
The demake’s navigation and combat system will obviously be different from the original Elden Ring, but the iconic ‘You Died’ message after you die in the game will be included.
This isn't the first demake of a FromSoftware RPG; a PlayStation 1 version of a Bloodborne spin-off is also in the works. The spin-off began as a meme, and developer Lilith Walter decided to make it a reality in the form of Bloodborne Kart, which appears to have some kart racing elements similar to Mario Kart. Isn't that an odd combination?
Players are inventing new and creative ways to play Elden Ring, and the Game Boy remake is unquestionably one of them. Check out how others are enjoying the game, such as this one playerwho willingly agrees to be summoned to fight one of the game's toughest bosses naked.
