Retro NES Resource Pack 1.20 / 1.19

For all those who want an engaging reminder of the good old times, the resource pack called the Retro NES is the thing they have been looking for. Retro NES is resource pack which you should immediately download just because of one thing – it is a really impressing resource pack and for anyone who remembers NES or has played games on it will surely be overwashed with nostalgia when they get their hands on this content. Retro NES Resource Pack was developed by Knightworm, the pack is pretty much complete. Textures comes in 16×16 resolution to make our “old times” more enjoyable! Low resolution will also allow many players to run the pack on sub-average PC’s configurations and still be free of any type of frame-rate issue.

Also to note, Knightworm is not the only one who initially conceptualized the same pack. But, because of he true creator has become mostly inactive, instead of him Knightworm has been allowed to continue his work and so far, he has been doing a very decent job. The main advantage of Retro NES is that it will completely transform the default look of the game. Additionally, it will also provide the music and sound effect with a huge overhaul. After installing this set of textures you will notice that every single default sound in the game has been changed to the one which all the NES players will easily recognize. Colors in Retro NES will use a limited color pallete which should also invoke the true feeling of the original games that were played on the NES console.

Retro NES should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 1.20.1 - 1.20 - 1.19.4 - 1.19.3 - 1.19.2 - 1.19.1 - 1.19 - 1.18.2 - 1.18.1 - 1.18 - 1.17.1 - 1.17 - 1.16.5 - 1.16.4 - 1.16.3 - 1.16.2 - 1.16.1 - 1.16 - 1.15.2 - 1.15.1 - 1.15 - 1.14.4 - 1.14.3 - 1.14.2 - 1.14 - 1.13.2 - 1.13.1 - 1.13 - 1.12.2 - 1.12 - 1.11.2 - 1.11 - 1.10.2 - 1.10 - 1.9.4 - 1.9 - 1.8.9 - 1.8.8 - 1.8.1 - 1.8.6 - 1.8 - Bedrock Edition - PE

    WHAT?! Why is it a whole zip pack ? Do you even know how hard unzipping in phones are ? Very much IQ is needed to do these stuff. Make it easier to directly click on the pack and import it on MCPE

    1. Admin

      The bedrock version is not a zip archive, but a .mcpack. Be sure to download the correct version: if you are running Java Edition, get the Java version, if you are running the bedrock edition, get the bedrock version. For phone users – you need the bedrock version.

  3. Billy

  6. M

  7. Joe Mello

    This is my favorite texture pack!! Is there any plan to finish the texture pack for 1.17?

  8. Conner Manley

    Some blocks show a purple and black checker texture meaning that one block in the 1.8.9 version isn’t showing. Is there a fix?

  9. Alemakrani “Awesome” Nschzencheimer

    Very very based, thankenstein for posting. These Classic Nostalgia Images remind me of Good Old Day. I felt so full of joy and Nostalgica when I turned the game on, that I cried and cheered, and I clapped, I clapped when I saw the Nostalgirona, oh my gaaaaaad.

  14. Ted Tedison885

    Nice job I didn’t expect you to use the nes pallete only.

  15. keira lily

    Oh my god this pack is so great!!! It works awesome and making the grass into piranha plants was the best idea. Very cute and great job
