Sega confirms Golden Axe is still on track for PS3

Recent reports from Xboxygen.com and Kotaku.com, have led people to believe that Golden Axe: Beast Rider had become an Xbox 360 exclusive. However this is not the case.

PSU.com has contacted Sega directly and received word that Secret Level is working on both an Xbox 360 and a PS3 version.

When asked if Secret Level had dropped the PS3 version of Golden Axe, Sega's Danny Chiu responded stating, "Not true, it's coming to PS3 as well."

So that should clear things up, everyone can expect both a PS3 version and Xbox 360 version next year when the game hits stores late in 2008.

Was it ever in dispute? I had forgotten about this game but I didn't even know it was in question. Sometimes there are too many games to keep track of.

UltramanJ6085d ago

is whether or not this game does the classic franchise justice. Despite the two Genesis sequels sucking, this franchise still holds a special place in my nostalgic heart. It would be nice if Revenge of Death Adder was an unlockable. I'd get the game just for that.

yeah man, i remember the original on the sega master system, i was able to beat it without dying once!! man those were the days...i miss space harrier

Genki6085d ago

how the game turns out that is. Multiplat or not I'm not gonna get my hopes up. Final Fight streetwise was a terrible blunder, so just because it carries an old name doesn't mean instant success anymore. Development is an entirely different beast these days. I'm indifferent. Not too optimistic, not too pessimistic. I admit, the name has it on my radar, but with no screens, media, or details, that's all it is to me at the moment, a name.

akaFullMetal6085d ago

well there you go, i guess it is coming to the ps3

Agriel6085d ago

you would think Kotaku would have taken the time to do a little research before posting an article. But I guess truth has never been what Kotaku was good at

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.

HeliosHex526d ago

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

Fonsecap526d ago

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

RetroCaptainSteve525d ago

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

Fonsecap524d 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

sourOG760d ago

A new eternal champions would be sick

TimelessDbz760d ago

Phantasy star Online 1 and Phantasy star universe.

Mopes759d ago

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

FlavorLav01760d 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)

sourOG760d ago

Condemned criminal origins!

Snookies12759d ago

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

sourOG759d 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.

10/10 for including Shinobi
