ROGUE ONE’s 8-Bit Version Has A Much Happier Ending

If you were being honest with yourself, you always knew that Rogue One was going to end with a lot of death and sadness. It really was inevitable, considering the band of rebels responsible for stealing the Death Star plans are nowhere to be found in the original Star Wars trilogy. Even beyond the violence of the movie, their ultimate sacrifice is the biggest reason the first standalone film in the galaxy far, far away is a much darker story than all the others.

But you know what isn’t dark and depressing? Old style video games, that’s what. Which is why the latest installment from CineFix in their “8-Bit Cinema” series has a much happier Rogue One ending for all of us to replay over and over again.

Playing as Jyn Erso, you get to travel from planet to planet alongside the rest of the movie’s stars, to help bring down the Empire’s ultimate weapon, but without any of those apocalyptic death scenes to bum you out. Though apparently, no matter the format, K-2SO will always need to give himself up in order to save the day.

Despite that, we would obviously play this game–repeatedly–if it were real, and considering the final end scene shot here, of Darth Vader looking out into space, we would definitely go out and buy the next game in the franchise too.

Though we have a feeling that even in 8-bit form, Obi-Wan wouldn’t make it to the end alive.

What character from Rogue One would you play as? Tell us why you’d chose that rebel in the comments section below.
