The ‘Solo’ Trailer Channels Super Star Wars On SNES In This 16-bit Remake

The master of all things recreating awesomeness with old video game tech is back at it again, because John Stratman has released another web gem, and it features his take on the Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer. Stratman remade the trailer using what appears to be the same game engine that was used in the iconic Super Star Wars trilogy that came out for the SNES back in the 90’s. This makes perfect sense considering that the film is also Star Wars related, so it is a match made in Star Wars heaven. In fact, with each new creation from Stratman, I’m finding myself wanting to play his video game version of movie trailers. I’d totally play a 16-bit Solo game that pays homage to the Super Star Wars franchise! Sign me up, I’m sure Lucasfilm won’t care about licensing or anything.

I also have to mention that the chiptune music used in this remake is fantastic. It manages to capture the essence of the trailer’s sound, but does so in a way that will transport you back to the old days of gaming if you happen to be born before 1996. Head on up above to check out this awesome video game movie trailer remake.
