Ni no Kuni is kind of a big deal because you don't see videogame adaptations of Studio Ghibli movies. Some ass hats completely mucked up Nausicaä back in the day, completely souring Hayao Miyazaki to the concept for life. Know what, though? The less shameless cash grabbing in this world the better. Can you imagine what Grave of the Fireflies for the Famicom would be like? Press A to scoop your sister's ashes into a candy tin!
Still, this cute little video by Mee-lin and Feegrita Sinclair of a fake Ponyo Game Boy Color game is pretty lovely. The Ponyo chiptune theme is spot on, as is the nearly static GBC "cutscene." It's a shame that the only "gameplay" footage is a small bit in which Ponyo runs across fish made of water. I was holding out for a ham-eating minigame!
