Sega have finally confirmed that there will be HD versions of Yakuza 1 and 2. That is until the listing was removed from their Japanese launch schedule. It was penned for a 1st November release. Anderiasang.com managed to get a screen shot before it was taken down.
Capcom announced at San Diego Comic-Con that they will be bringing a HD version of JoJo’s Bizarre adventure to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace. The game is based on Japanese Manga of the same name and originally started as an arcade machine. It will feature the same fighting styles as Capcom’s other titles however unlike Street Fighter, Marvel Vs Capcom et al, things are slightly different.
Sega have finally confirmed that Nights Into Dreams will be seeing a HD remake for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and will be released in the Autumn. The game will be a download only title and not have a physical boxed release. The game was originally released on Sega Saturn and was a popular new franchise for the console. Nights also made appearances on the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 and a follow up for the Nintendo Wii in 2007.
Not content with blowing everything up on screen, Sylvester Stallone and crew have made it onto a video game. Yes there will be a video game based upon the latest Expendables film. Created by Ubisoft, the game brings together 4 of the baddest members of the Expendables crew – Barney Ross (Stallone), Gunner Jensen (Lundgren), Hale Caesar (Crews) and Yin Yang (Li) to save a Billionaire from bad guys.
Microsoft have confirmed the titles for it’s summer of arcade on the Xbox Live Marketplace that we can all look forward too in the coming months. Titles include the Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD remake as well as Kinect title – Wreckateer and third person shooter: Hybrid.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater was the first and probably best of the extreme sports franchises to come to consoles. Sure you had the BMX and surfing spin offs but Tony and his crew did it better. It also gave players all over the world to listen to different types of music, normally synonymous with the skate scene.
Whilst some developers have been increasingly vocal about their criticism of the Xbox Live platform in recent years, it would appear that a game with a cult following, or a good game, will sell. Regardless of price or what platform you sell it on.
