Golden Axe PS3/X360: First details

The first details on Sega and Secret Level's long announced Golden Axe update have been revealed in the latest issue of PSM3.

If you're looking for a straight update you're probably going to be disappointed, because the classic bruiser has been pretty much completely re-imagined in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 update.

First off, you now play as one Amazonian hero, the scantily clad Tyris Flare, instead of the original game's trio of fantasy stereotypes. Gillus the dwarf and Ax Battler are still in the game, says PSM3, but only as supporting cast.

Back in my youth i used to go down the arcade and spend upto £1.00 playing this game (5 x 20p)...... I would be happy if it was an arcade port, i`ve got a funny feeling its going to be like watching William Shatner putting on a leotard though..... BAD!

mighty_douche6046d ago

anyone who gets Shatner into a comment deserves a bubble!

Gief bubbelz plz.

Golden Axe with free roaming.. hrm.. Miss the old one, hopefully there is a Bonus Content with the Arcade Game when completing the game once? xD

Doesn't this mean that game will no longer have co-op? And what's with the open world approach. They could have easily chose a different name for the game if it's not much faithfull to the originals.

mighty_douche6046d ago

sticking Golden Axe on the cover guarantees a few more sales i guess.

im gonna go out on a limb here, i predict one crappy game!

TheHater6046d ago

QTF...This game might be crap and the publishers know it. So the slap on a classic Arcade name on it, so it will get the attention older people that use to play this game back in they day of the Arcade.

jjfunaz6046d ago

For once I actually agree with you. Without Multiplayer Coop this game looses a lot of its original charm.

Free roaming might be cool as long as they don't worry too much about that and mak an awesome combat system. Too many open world games (Oblivion, Two Worlds etc) feature a lack luster combat engine. Golden ax needs to have this to be successfully.

I do predict a crappy game though

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.
