That would be great. I'd like to see Golden Axe 1,2, and 3 put
on one Saturn CD, with 32-bit graphics + sound. Is it my
imagination or was GA 2 only a Genesis game, and not in the
arcade? I don't remember an arcade version, but my memory
could be failing me...
If they also added an all new GA 4 on the CD, that would be the
coolest thing! I can dream right?
I'm pretty sure i remeber playing GA2 in the arcade...
GA2 was only for the Genesis. The arcade sequel, subtitled the Return
or Revenge of Death Adder was a completely different and FAR better
game. You could team up with Gilius Thunderhead, who now rides on a
giant's back, an elf whose magic makes little trees appear that drop
apples for health, a centaur female who turns into a normal woman when
riding a steed, and a standard-issue warrior. Death Adder had killer
magic, he had a shield with a dragon face that swallowed your magic
bottles if you tried to use magic, and shot fire at you, effectively
limiting you to physical attacks.
GA3 was also released for Genesis, but only in Japan, and by all
reports, it was just as well.:(
I just saw a picture of GOLDEN AXE: THE DUEL for Saturn in Gameplayers
magazine. It looks almost if not arcade perfect! This one looks
really promising, and it will hopefully be on our shores soon! Keep
an eye out!
P.S. Wouldn't it be cool if they did a 32-bit version of the arcade
classic called GOLDEN AXE: REMIX?
