RetroNES 1.18-1.17.1 is an epic 16x texture pack for Minecraft Java and Minecraft PE Bedrock that will immerse you in the wild nostalgia of the 90’s. The feeling of nostalgia derived from these options is indescribable, it’s like playing on an old console, not a computer. On each block you can see some Easter eggs which are a reference to some of the most popular console games of those times.
The current texture developer is Nightworm. This retro set of resources makes the game world completely new, because it not only replaces the textures of blocks and things, but also introduces its own sounds and effects. All this will immerse you to the old gaming world that has just begun to emerge. In some places in the game world, this will be very strange, but it may seem so only to beginners who have never seen the original pixel sketches from old games. This is especially unusual in the Nether, because the author has done a great job of updating the package to update each of the biomes. Moving into this world, the player will notice some elements from the locations and levels of retro arcade games that were created for boss fights.
