After a long development started in 2017, FromSoftware has finally delivered its latest baby. Released on February 25, Elden Ring is not unanimous, however, between the praise of the specialized press and the mixed opinions of some players. Technical problems were particularly pointed out. While waiting for a fix worthy of the name, we invite you to take a leap into the past by discovering this successful demake of the RPG.

While technical progress has been exponential since the release of the PS1 in 1994, videographer Hoolopee wondered what the game would look like if it had been released at the time on the first PlayStation of the name. He thus reworked the images by greatly reducing the quality of the graphics. The result is an enticing teaser that would have certainly hit the mark with gamers of the 90s.

As you will have understood, the YouTuber did not produce a complete demake of Elden Ring, contenting himself simply with remixing a few images. But such a retro port could very well be developed in the future in order to satisfy those nostalgic for the PlayStation 1. Still on the side of FromSoftware, a PS1 demake of Bloodborne is now available for download thanks to the colossal work of Lilith Walther.
