The game’s full title is, Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragon, and it has arrived on XBLA. When I first learned of the games existence I immediately thought it was a sequel to Way Forward’s amazing Double Dragon Neon. Unfortunately, this is not the case, and I realized it after reading the game’s description. Rather than trying to sum it up, I think it would be best to post it directly for all to enjoy:
This is a remake ‘Double Dragon II‘ a 80′s game. The story line takes same as original game story. However, the graphic, character, action, system etc. are change. Also we are including new stage and enemy in the game. The player will be addicted to new version of Double Dragon II. Also, characters are undressed from 80′s style, and recreated with modern sexy and beautiful style that amaze you and feel never been experienced world before.
Yeeeeeeeah buddy. So you may or not may not play as nudists. Let’s hope the game’s code was written better than that description. Has anyone had a chance to try it yet? I have the demo downloading as I type.
The Sega Mega Drive/ Genesis classic Flashback will be completely remade in 3D and will be released on XBLA and PSN later this year. The game’s creator Paul Cuisset and his French development studio VectorCell have been working with publisher Ubisoft on the remake, which will feature completely overhauled 3D graphics, full voice acting, new gameplay sections and more.
I love Flashback. I love its so much that I asked Tom Kyzivat to base my Sega Addict chewable on the Mega Drive version’s title screen. So far I am totally in love with this new version of Flashback as shown in the exciting trailer above. So far it looks as though Paul Cuisset is sticking close to his and Delphine Software’s original vision, and isn’t veering the game towards a more “hardcore” market.
But that may just be the nostalgia talking. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!
Capcom’s Strider series may be getting a new addition some time soon if a leaked XBLA image and Steam achievement are anything to go by.
Those rascally fellows over at NeoGAF were able to nab the XBLA box art from a game named “Strider” the official Xbox Marketplace website before the entry was taken down. Additionally, they found a Steam achievement in the Steam database that contained an image of Strider Hiryu, which has also now been removed.
Strider was originally released in the arcade, but its Mega Drive/ Genesis port remains one of the best on the console. Although judging by the artwork it would seem as though a new, modern game is in the works, a HD rerelease of the arcade or Mega Drive version would also be welcomed.

Okay, you can wipe that silly shocked expression of your face as that’s about all there is to say about this news story. A hawk eyed NeoGAF member spotted the renewal of the Skies of Arcadia trademark, which had been approved on July 11th this year, leading to the obvious speculation of a HD remake to complement the string of Dreamcast and Saturn HD releases we’ve been promised by Sega.
The announcement of ‘Skies of Arcadia HD’ would of course be met with open arms by Sega fans as many consider it to be the must-have JRPG for the Dreamcast. Personally I would love to see Sega bring to light to a classic such as Skies of Arcadia that, despite a stellar Gamecube rerelease, has become largely forgotten. With another HD release I also hope to finally see ‘Dreamcast Collection Volume 2′. What are your hopes and (NiGHTS Into) dreams? Let us know in he comments below!
The impressive and ambitious Sonic 2 HD fan project, which aims to release an unofficial, HD version of the Mega Drive classic Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with enhanced visuals and music has finally bared fruit in the form of a playable, downloadable Alpha version. The Alpha demo is playable on Windows XP, Vista and 7 and can be downloaded from the project website.
The project, which has been in existence for over two years, originally started life as a Sonic Retro-based community project which eventually evolved into a closed-project, which is still the case as of now. There are currently no projections as to when the project will be completed, but do let us know what you think of the work so far in the comments below!

Unfortunately in 2009 Bionic Commando Rearmed developer Grin was made defunct due to financial difficulties and money problems. While it’s sad for any company to close down, it may have been worse for Sega fans due to a shelved Streets of Rage remake which has been revealed in a recent post over at eurogamer.
The only information that we know of is that it was to be a downloadable title and that there wasn’t a lot of work put into it before it was cancelled. However there are still some screenshots and concept art floating about on the internet. Want to see ‘em? Go on then, hit the jump to see some lost concept art and screenshots of the working build!
In a recent feature in Japanese media giant Nikkei’s online magazine on the future of Nintendo, it is mentioned that the Dreamacst classic, Seaman may be coming to the 3DS in some form. In the feature, Nintendo is described as planning to ‘revive’ strong, yet somewhat forgotten, games from other publishers in order to bolster the 3DS game library. It is important to note that Seaman was used only as an example of such a game, and no official announcement of its release has been made.
Since its original release on the Sega Dreamcast in 1999, the game has remained well-known amongst Dreamcast fans for its peculiar, yet in-depth take on the ‘virtual pet’ craze and for its implementation of voice-recognition via the VMU microphone. I unfortunately missed the game the first time around, but feel the game would be exceptionally well suited for a handheld console, especially the 3DS. Any other ‘forgotten’ Sega games that would find a good home on the 3DS? Post your comments below!
