Bloodborne (and More) Throwback Jewel Cases Dip Into PlayStation Nostalgia

Bloodborne (and a bunch of PlayStation favorites) get PS1 throwback crystal case remakes in unofficial dive into nostalgia.

November 29, 2020

If you have some of your fondest gaming memories in the 90’s, there is just something absolutely nostalgic about old-school crystal cases. And while the new packaging is way less fragile, it’s hard not to imagine how the latest PlayStation titles would look in square cases. Thankfully, London-based Etsy creator Jinn Media is making those dreams come true — recreating PS4 and PS5 box arts for games like BloodborneThe Last of Us: Part II, and Demon’s Souls.

News comes from Jinn Media’s official Instagram page, where they have been debuting off some of their latest additions to their shop. This includes a recently-revealed Bloodborne crystal case demake:

As you might imagine, this is far from the only version of a demake we’ve seen from Jinn Media. A quick browse of their dedicated Etsy page shows that they’ve tackled other projects, including Ghost of TsushimaDemon’s SoulsGod of War, and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. In case you are interested in grabbing any of them for a display case, you can nab one for roughly $30.

Jinn Media is far from the first person to take on these kind of projects. A few years back we highlighted the Kingdom Hearts 3 throwback jewel case that grabbed our attention around the launch. On top of that, the community is always looking for new ways to celebrate the game — including making an incredible (and functional) threaded cane.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

In recent Bloodborne news, the game is still locked at 30 FPS when playing on the PS5 via backward compatibility. As noted, the game would likely need an update to hit contemporary performance-level standards on PS5.

Bloodborne is available now exclusively on PS4 (and playable on PS5); if you haven’t somehow picked up the game, you can grab it on Amazon to help support DualShockers.
