Star Wars: The Last Jedi

8-bit Trailer for The Last Jedi recreates the feel of SNES Star Wars games

16-bit trailer, but oh well

The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was pretty darn great. It teased some of the action to come, but thankfully didn't seem to give away any of the story. To put it another way, the trailer whet the appetite without spoiling dinner, which is what good trailers ought to do.

Today a retro game version of the Last Jedi trailer showed up online, which director Rian Johnson seemed to enjoy. Check out 8-bit Trailers' take on The Last Jedi below.

In terms of sound and graphics, that was a spot-on recreation of the Super Star Wars games for Super Nintendo. Super Empire Strikes Back was one of my favorite games for the SNES, while Super Return of the Jedi was one of the most infuriatingly difficult pieces of crap ever committed to a game console. Ugh, jeez, that opening vehicle level with all the pits to jump was so bad.

That said, this Super The Last Jedi trailer could have used a Mode 7 scene to really sell the SNES vibe.

Johnson's own response to the retro Last Jedi trailer nodded to another beloved LucasArts game.

Let us know what you think about the 8-bit trailer in the comments. You can also talk about how much of a pain Super Return of the Jedi was, because ugh. That game. Ugh.
