What's the difference between 16 bit and 8 bit in this game

best ninja gaiden remake

I feel like this dude said everything you will see in the game... All the items and such. Isn't it better to leave something as a surprise...

I played this at Pax East. it was awesome, i’m excited to download it and play it!
Gerpir Feilan (1 month ago)
What a crappy game... If you wanna stick to 8bit be consistent and don't use palette which would never display in 8bit. People, look at Dead Cells if you wanna great looking retro style game.

This game looks incredible OMG so stoked

32 bit final level. Possibly even higher. Calling it now.

This looks so good. Definitely getting this for the Switch.

If these excellent games keep being made, keep 'em comin'! My time machine is primed and "ready player 1"! And I love FamiTracker!!!!

physical version ???
Ricky D (2 months ago)
this is my type of game... absolutely brilliant looking game, not to mention gameplay!!!! please PLEASE bring this to both the PS4 and Vita (mostly and preferably the Vita as it would be a perfect fit)????!?!?!?
Chaoseater1510 (2 months ago)
I hope this comes to the PS4 or the Vita!
The evolution of the pixel count to show progress is an awesome mechanic it would be sweet if it ended on 32 but sprites that were the pinochle of these games like symphony of the night or mega man x4 or jump all the way to sf3 quality yea right on that last one
zanychelly (2 months ago)
Switch?! Lol . Game looks great, but the console is not my cup of tea. At least it will have a pc release
Michael T (2 months ago)
zanychelly it's actually a perfect match imo; game will run optimally and you have multiple control and display options. But to each their own.
Mrgokujr2018 (2 months ago)
This is 8-bit? It looks like they're already playing 16-bit to me.
TripMX (2 months ago)
Haha, I'd say it's advanced 8-bit and standard 16-bit graphics
Juanelio Garciano (2 months ago)
Looking forward to this one.
Scott Payne (2 months ago)
Seeing as how this game evolves from 8bit to 16bit as you play through it, I think it would be also pretty cool to see a game that slowly evolves through all of the major graphics upgrades over the decades. All the way to current gen.
Malcolm Swoboda (13 days ago)
There is - sorta. Evoland 1 and 2.
Scott Payne (2 months ago)
Pretty cool looking game. Definitely getting this on Steam. Glad to see the Switch getting so many indie games too though.

Release date?
julio Giovanni Caceda (2 months ago)
that is a copy of ninja gaiden from nintendo
AnthonyLopez23456 (2 months ago)
Oh my God YES this is what I've been wanting. Indie pixel art NEVER looks like the nostalgic games they're referencing, they're always over simplistic, minimalost, it always feel people forgot what snes/genesis games actually looked like, but this does it! I love that!
Optimus Grime (2 months ago)
All this new tech and this is what their doing... ...wasteful.
Olivier Doriath (2 months ago)
Something about the graphics, resolution, and character to screen ratio feels weird...

The 16-bit segment they showed reminded me of Strider.
Jeff Kelly (2 months ago)
nothing we havent seen before......i dont get the hype
khululy p (1 month ago)
If ninja gaiden was rereleased without the annoying enemy respawn which is just memory limitation on the NES part, it would be a blast to play because the controls are smooth and swift.
Samuel Sprowl (1 month ago)
Yij Lai When's the last time you've played the classics? I played Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 recently on my nes, and they're really not that amazing gameplay wise.
Suncho (1 month ago)
Luke Stuard well not to be picky but we have seen this kind of switching too. Also I understand the interest about the game, but not the hype. It's not something revolutionary for such hype. I understand why people want such games, I myself had NES and played a lot of games on it, and sometimes I feel like playing again, but to be complelty hyped about one, I don't understand it. And then I rarely get hyped about any game, so I guess it could be me.
Johannes Grün (1 month ago)
think so too. it looks good but i played already to many side scrolling pixel games like this in my life...
ZerostrikeX (1 month ago)
Yij Lai you obviously don’t understand the appeal of this game and are making a callow, uninformed judgement with nothing to back it up. its fine if you dont see a place for it in your digital game collection, but to the rest of us it’s an awesome throwback/homage to ninja gaiden and other 2d action platformers of the time. there’s totally an audience for this kind of stuff and people constantly buy indie games like these especially if they’re well-made. Personally, i demoed this game at Pax and it was fantastic
Nathan Hicks (2 months ago)
Only on the switch and pc....It’s got to come to other things!

Retro style games are aesthetically still very appealing .
Rico Salvaje (1 month ago)
Duet shade yes they are. The bloodstained curse of the moon looks great
Mega (1 month ago)
I would put Return of the Joker and TMNT III: The Manhattan Project as the two best looking NES games (Batman technically looks more impressive, but TMNT has multiple enemies on screen). Maybe not as the best out of all 8-bit games. SMS and Game Gear are graphically more capable. GG especially has some really nice looking games that could pass for 16-bit games: Gunstar Heroes, Ristar, Fatal Fury, Road Rash, Mortal Kombat I and II, Shinobi, Wonder Boy III, Aleste, Streets of Rage, Sonic Triple Trouble, Tails' Adventure, etc. And if you count PC Engine, that's a whole other 8-bit system that wipes the floor with the rest.
Gerpir Feilan (1 month ago)
Agree to that Mega. People tend to forget that NES is 8bit at that huge limitation when it comes to the color palette. So even tho Batman: Jocker Returns (which is, in my opinion, the best looking 8bit game) Cadash and Dead Cells belongs to "retro genre" you cant put these games into one basket.
Mega (2 months ago)
It depends. Many retro indie games have this simplistic pixel art style that doesn't belong to any past era of gaming. It can sometimes look cheap, inconsistent, too basic or uninspired. Games that adhere to actual NES aesthetics to a fairly large degree are quite uncommon. Not many games around pulling off the look of NES Ninja Gaiden or the Sunsoft and Natsume games. I wish more did.
Harrazotamegane (2 months ago)
Yeah..one of the example is Celeste

Third parties sell horrible on the switch unless it's retro or Indy
Luke S. (2 months ago)
The Real Lie the devs reasoning for not bringing it to the switch (yet) is completely different hardware to what they're used to, not because the switch is too weak
Luke S. (2 months ago)
The Real Truth yeah it (probably) can, the devs even said that they want injustice 2 on the switch, there is nothing that says switch can't handle injustice 2, maybe a couple small graphical downgrades tho
