Bethesda Softworks, makers of the Fallout series, have asked and answered the question “What would Fallout 3 have looked like if it was made in 1987 and in Japanese?”

What would Fallout 3 look like if it had been made in 1987 by a Japanese development studio? Our scientists have answered that question, taking over the Japanese Fallout website with an 8-bit version of the Capital Wasteland.

Just like that import copy of Final Fantasy 5 you nabbed in the 90s, this game is Japanese language-only. Fortunately, it’s still amusing to gaze at the pixelated approximations of super mutants and the like. Here’s a direct link right to the game; no cartridge-cleaning required.

I can’t read Japanese. I have no idea what is going on here but if you do read the language (Looking at you Dan 😛 ) then try it out.
