Malenia is now 16-bit in this SNES demake of Elden Ring

Elden Ring on SNES could be even more beautiful than the original.

Elden Ring took the gaming world by storm when it launched in February. Unless God of War Ragnarok arrives before the end of 2022, FromSoft’s newest offering will take home plenty of Game of the Year awards six months from now. Its dedicated fan base will ensure that it stays at the forefront of everyone’s minds as they continue to do great things with the game. A list that now includes a Super Nintendo demake.


YouTuber 64 Bits (via Polygon) is responsible for the demake, and it’s pretty special. You ask most Elden Ring players to imagine what the game would look like on an older console, and it would be hard to imagine it on a Switch, let alone a SNES. If you’re having a hard time imagining what that would be like, stop imagining and scroll down a bit so you can see the 64-Bit work.

Elden Ring becomes a top-down adventure when it’s broken down and put on display on an SNES, and it also gives off some serious Legend of Zelda vibes. It also somewhat resembles Zombies Ate My Neighbors set in The Lands Between. There is a mash-up that no one had thought of before. Instead of freely traveling around the map as is the case in normal Elden Ring, the SNES version allows you to effectively teleport from one area to another.

Your trusty horse Torrent is still with you, of course, and there are a number of friends and foes in the above snippet that Elden Ring players will instantly recognize. Pot Boy, Pope Turtle, and Malenia, perhaps the hardest enemy to find in the entire game, no matter how many pixels she’s made of. Malenia looks just as prolific on the SNES as she does on regular Elden Ring, but not as terrifying as the mod that turns every living thing in The Lands Between into her and her deadly sword.

Reimagining what modern games would look like if they had been released decades earlier is a very popular thing right now. Just days after Elden Ring arrived in February, someone had already recreated it to look like a PS1 game. Speaking of PS1 demakes, another YouTuber tweaked the Lightyear launch trailer to make the new movie look like a game on the first PlayStation.
