This is what ‘Friends’ would look like as a Game Boy game

The show's intro has been given a retro 8-bit remake

We may not be getting a Friends reunion any time soon, but the classic show’s opening credits have been given a nostalgic 8-bit makeover.

The official Warner Bros YouTube channel recently shared a clip of what the Friends intro would look like if it was turned into a retro arcade or Game Boy game.

There’s also some 8-bit versions of famous Friends scenes, including the time Ross tried to teach Rachel and Phoebe about “Unagi”. See those beneath.


Friends star Matt LeBlanc recently confirmed once more that he isn’t open to the idea of reviving the iconic 90s sitcom.

LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani in the show, said: “I don’t want to do it. People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family.

“To go back and revisit all these years later, well I don’t know what the story would be now. They would all have moved on from that period so it wouldn’t be the same.”


He added: “Put bluntly, I don’t think anybody wants to see an old Joey having a colonoscopy. Fine when he was drinking coffee in Central Perk, or auditioning for a job. Not so much fun if he’s undergoing a medical procedure.

“We were a lot younger then and I think that’s how the characters should stay. Normally I’d never say never, but in the case of Friends I would say definitely never.”
