This is a remastered screenshot from the video game Faxanadu a game made for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987. It is about a battle between Elves and Dwarves caused by an evil being that came to the land via a meteor. The entire game takes place inside a gigantic tree. This image depicts the root system of the tree which is dying from lack of water.

There are about 6 people in the entire world that remember this game. But it was one of my favorites. The game has a lot of room for enhancement, but the style overall I always thought was excellent in the original. The music was also one of the best for the NES. (If you're reading this and are musically inclined, please make remixes of this game!)

This scene is modified from the original game and displayed in widescreen instead of 4x3.

This image took a very long time to create (close to 50 hours).

The nostalgia is real. It is almost painful to see such a screen incredibly remastered while knowing it will only ever a glimpse into what could be but never will. For me, this is my favorite nes game of all time. I bought it from a small-town video store in the 90s instead of renting a VHS. Best few dollars ever spent on entertainment. I wish Konami would contract you to provide all remastered graphics for a 4k version of this game. I know you have a life outside of remastering Faxanadu, but I would love to see a 4k version of the final battle using tilte and wielding the dragon slayer in the battle suite. Simply brilliant work.
