Out. Of. Nowhere! French publisher Dotemu’s clearly not done with retro revivals in the wake of its recent Windjammers 2 announcement, as it’s just confirmed Streets of Rage 4. This is one helluva sentence so it deserves repeating at least once: Streets of Rage 4 has just been freakin’ announced. There are no platforms confirmed yet,...
The discus’ whiskers
The real classics never die, and Windjammers’ peak popularity is proof of that. Despite being a relatively obscure Neo Geo release in the mid-90s, this game of futuristic Frisbee has endured the test of time – becoming a popular streaming attraction in recent years due to its balletic competitive play. And now, courtesy of...
Hope you like jammin', too
Kiss goodbye to all other games, as Windjammers will power (disc) its way to the PlayStation 4 and Vita from 29th August. The legendary game of Frisbee was announced for Sony’s systems all the way back at PlayStation Experience last year, and after a closed beta last month, is finally ready to charge up and lob a piece...
High above the mucky muck
The Wonder Boy series was one of the Master System's most beloved franchises, though its cult-classic status hasn't prevented it from falling by the wayside.

Set 700 years before the events of the main Ys series, Origin steers away from the series' familiar protagonist Adol Christin in order to focus on the background of the series'...
Do the disc-o

If ever you needed evidence that Sony well and truly understands its audience, it's bringing back Data East's cult classic to the PlayStation 4 and Vita. This port of the iconic flying disc game will feature online multiplayer, rankings, and competitive leagues. There's really...
Everyone's going SEGA gaga today! Hot on the heels of the Phantasy Star-inspired Cosmic Star Heroine, cult Master System classic Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap is now confirmed to be getting a remake. This one was also ported to the PC Engine in the early nineties, but is being re-created for modern "consoles" by a French team with...
Having a ball
Pang always seemed like a strange name for the then-popular game about bursting deadly alien bubbles. The word not only sounds like the perfect title for a shameless rip-off of Pong, but it means "a sudden, strong feeling of physical or emotional pain". When the original game was released in the US back in 1989, it adopted the name...
