We Sing 80s Hits The Nintendo Entertainment System
Posted by Damien McFerran
In the fictional world of video game promotion, at least
We Sing 80s is the latest in a long line of Wii-based music titles, so it's a given that the promotional campaign for the game needs to be something special for it to get noticed.
Publisher Nordic Games has done just that by mocking up a video which shows what the game would have looked like if it had legitimately been launched in the '80s - and on the Nintendo Entertainment System.
Here's the press release, for those of you that are confused by all this time-travelling silliness:
Imagine if next month’s release of We Sing 80s wasn’t a glorious retrospective of the decade’s best tunes, but a contemporary release featuring current smash hits.
That’s the question posed by publisher Nordic Games, as it releases a video showing what We Sing 80s would have looked like had it been released on the most popular Nintendo console of the day.
The video shows a team of nostalgic fans that have been desperate to play singing games on their classic consoles crooning away to the most memorable 80s songs on the NES. Complete with 8-bit graphics and glorious 8-bit mono sound, including hits from Queen, Lionel Richie and the Human League, fans of the We Sing series can now see how it would look to truly roll back the years.
