Actual New NES Game to Debut on ABC's The Goldbergs
On Wednesday, May 6th, a brand new game, entitled Mystic Searches, for the 30 year old Nintendo Entertainment System will be teased on ABC’s The Goldbergs.
Not only will Mystic Searches be a true, cartridge based, 8-bit experience that will play on actual Nintendo Entertainment System hardware, the team has also developed a method which allows the classic console to interface with modern hardware. A modern, 3d version of the game world will be able to communicate with the NES game and allow for a unique, multi-platform experience. The team is currently in talks with Nintendo to bring the experience to the Wii-U.
“The two games are meant to be complementary,”
The game’s core concept is based on illustrations Granato did as a child. At eight years old, he sent these ideas to Nintendo, however they were returned. Now, almost 30 years later, he is bringing them to life.
The New 8-bit Heroes, a documentary about the creation of Mystic Searches, will go further than examining the culture of post market NES development. It will show the group’s attempt to make the best game possible within the constraints. The project’s narrative developer, fantasy novelist E.A.A. Wilson, sits with 21 time best seller Piers Anthony (Xanth, Incarnations of Immortality)
