Top Six Characters that Need to Come Out of Retirement

Pato Banton sang a song with UB40 – Baby Come Back. There are plenty of video game characters who have been retired for one reason or another. Some of them we would like to see again. If absence makes the heart fonder, then I am as fond of these characters as I can be. So please join me as we explore the Top Six Characters that Need to Come Out of Retirement. Maybe just maybe someone out there reading can help bring these characters back. (Culture, Industry, Retro)

Strider Hiryu. Not in a fighting game, but I mean his own full blown game.

Loved Shining force and i always did wonder where the main hero ended up, they need to make a sequel to that game.

I think it would be good to bring back Jazzy Jackrabbit, those games were great fun.

What am i talking about, they did make a sequel to Shining Force :P What i meant was they should make a sequel to the story.

A compilation of Shining Force III would be nice. Since we only got part one of that game in the States.

But yeah some kind of a sequel to the franchise would be appreciated. :)

They also made a sequel to the story. Shining Force CD and Shining Force: Final Conflict bridge the gap between 1 and 2 (and even have some returning/overlapping characters).

The one game that came to mind was Blaster Master!

The Streets of Rage team!

Shining Force (as we know it) is never coming back. The series will stay in Japan, and that's fine with me. The new developers have demolished the series.

I suggest following Camelot (the original developers). To me, their RPGs are still the Shining series; not this new hentai shovelware the Sega keeps pushing out the door.
