... Sega will see sense and do a next gen remake of Golden Axe 1..?

Well, one can dream.

SlappingOysters6000d ago

How can you not be excited about the prospect of playing a next-gen Golden Axe.

Yeah it could suck, but it also could be to the original what Metroid Prime was to Super Metroid!!

SlappingOysters6000d ago

Forgot to add, I am pretty sick and tired of the virtual console and old school games returning just as they were, with a slight visual polish.

Bring on Final Fight 3D and California Games

is they better not screw this up! So many things could go wrong with a new version of a gaming classic like this. I hope they can pull it off and still have that classic Golden Axe flavor. I fear, however, it will turn out to be just another hack and slash adventure.

InMyOpinion6000d ago

They already screwed up by not making Ax Battler the main character.

biomajor096000d ago

make this game only one player? Come on the whole fun of golden axe was playing with one of your buddies hacking down enemies and fighting to see which one gets to ride the killer dragon.

I don't care what anybody says, I've always loved playing as Tyris Flare. The other characters were good of course, but I always liked her style. This game is gonna be near the top of my "to buy" list when it's released.


I had slim to zero hope for this title untill I saw that vid

It has renewed my interest in this game, great post

you get a bubb from me sun !

Golden Axe is a great game I enjoyed it on the SMS, Genesis and in the arcade. Great game but it truly was a quarter eater back in the day. I wish Sega could get the rights to the arcade port of Moonwalker another great arcade game I enjoyed. Collect so many monkeys and become Robo Michael lol.

HeliosHex557d ago

Agreed. Don't forget to include the classic red/white one piece for the amazon.

Fonsecap556d ago

We definitely need a good golden axe Game, dotemu should definitely do it, and Capcom should remake final fight

RetroCaptainSteve556d ago

As long as it's not like Streetwise, I agree.

Fonsecap555d ago

There was nothing "wise" about that game 😅

Gunstar Heroes was made by Treasure. I'm not sure if that IP actually belongs to Sega. If it does, the ONLY modern day developer that I think would do that game justice is Housemarque. Maybe Sega could collaborate with Sony to let them make a modern day Gunstar Heroes. I definitely think Shinobi and Afterburner need modern day remakes though.

I feel like there are stronger Sega IP's than some of the ones that were listed such as...

Vector Man
Comix Zone
Virtual On
Ranger X
Jet Set Radio
Eternal Champions

sourOG790d ago

A new eternal champions would be sick

TimelessDbz790d ago

Phantasy star Online 1 and Phantasy star universe.

Mopes790d ago

Sadly I think that is unlikely because of Phantasy Star Online 2

FlavorLav01790d ago

Totally agreed. That’s a good start. Here’s a few more I think would covert well.

Virtua Fighter
Fighting Vipers
Sonic Adventure
Altered Beast
Shenmue (properly supported)

sourOG790d ago

Condemned criminal origins!

Snookies12790d ago

Amazing series, wish more people had known about it back in the day!

sourOG790d ago

Probably still my favorite horror game of all time. I’ve been into that kind of shit my whole life so I don’t scare easy but condemned got me. When you’re looking down a hallway and see people peaking out. The heart was kicking lmao.

I need to play it again. I played a year or 2 ago and it still held up. Graphics are obviously dated but just the premise. Like pulling pipes off of the wall and shit. You don’t see that anymore. I’d take the same game with a new can of paint, it still feels good. Multiplat remaster do it. I don’t think criminal origins ever came to PlayStation.

FreeckyCake790d ago

10/10 for including Shinobi
