Older video games are getting remade to appeal to player nostalgia.

Oct 14 2022

Older video games are getting remade to appeal to player nostalgia. Much like the remakes and remasters coming out of Hollywood, video game publishers are overhauling and rereleasing old-school games to tap into the existing (and nostalgia-hungry) fandoms for popular titles like The Legend of ZeldaCrash BandicootSpyro the Dragon, and World of Warcraft. Meanwhile, some more niche titles are also getting revamped: while the 2003 SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom game wasn’t a huge hit, young-at-heart Millennials still love the little yellow sponge, giving the “rehydrated” version dropping this winter an instant audience all these years later. YPulse has long reported on Gen Z and Millennials’ ‘90s and Y2K nostalgia, which continues to be fed by brands across industries. But with gaming continuing to rise as a top pastime in their lives, adding a throwback element to their virtual world entertainment is a surefire way to capture their affinity. (NYT)
