Princess Mononoke” is one of the most succcessful Studio Ghibli films and is widely considered to be one of Hayao Miyazaki’s best animated films. It’s hard to imagine the movie as anything other than what Miyazaki envisioned, but CineFix’s 8-Bit version of it is unexpectedly refreshing and lighthearted.

“Princess Mononoke” tells the story of a prince who becomes intertwined in a fight between a forest princess and a mining colony. The video follows Prince Ashitaka from the moment he is cursed by a demon and throughout his journey. The classic 8-bit gaming style brings originality and ingenuity to an already action-packed animated classic.
