Indie developer MABManZ crafting a spritual sequel to the long-abandoned Power Stone series, launching a Kickstarter drive on May 15 and aided by character designs and art from industry artists Alex Ahad and Robaato.
Surprised there is no PS4 version planned
Same here actually. I'm sure the PS4 version will get announced at a later date.
Damn shame, I'm a huge power stone fan or any party fighter too bad I won't be getting this. Was looking forward to this.
Same here and I was a bit gutted until I saw the video. This is nothing like power stone! The levels are boring, the level of interaction in levels is rubbish, the presentation is meh, the lack of anything resembling power stones and the combat looks weak in comparison.
There is too much else going on that is distracting. Powerstone was more simplified and better off for it. Still glad a game like this is being made though. Not many of them.
I love the power stone games! They had that special kind of arcade awesomeness long since lost. Gameplay looks solid, now they just need the crazy items and vehicles
spiritual sequel my ass. looks like crap and designs are meh... with tech we have right now graphics should easily surpass dc level but this doesnt look right and the cel shading is just off. "you might expect Combat Core to be the brainchild of ex-Capcom employees from the Power Stone pedigree, " first look at that trailer and i knew it had nothing to do with any of the people who did the power stone games. lets try and not call it a spiritual whatever and try calling it a ripoff/clone. also kinda sad that they cant even copy t he whackyness of the power stone games. also find it strange that there is no ps4/vita version.
have really good memories playing power stone with my brother on dreamcast. great game
I was excited reading the title. And then I saw the gameplay.... Where are all the pickups? And the level design looks really dull. Hopefully this is just early footage.
Descriptions on the site list item pickups as a feature, so I'm guessing it's in the works and just not present in whatever build they used for the trailer. "Power ups" were in there, too, but since there's no mention of a direct equivalent to the stone collection system I'm curious to see what direction it'll take.
I just want a powerstone 3 game. Powerstone 2 was my favourite game on the dreamcast and there's not really been anything quite like it since then.
this game looks meh at best. we could have had a badass powerstone 3 game already with VF5 quality graphics and close stages for 4 players with online but capcom wont get off their lazy asses and make any games other than crap RE's where all the ladies do is curse and get followed but mutated sewer trolls. remember when RE games inspired intrigue? anyway.. yeah a Powerstone 3 is badly needed. it could have DC quality graphics at 480p for all i care
