Aged after many years of inaction, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding reunite to clean up the city that’s become plagued with crime and violence.
With hand-drawn visuals from the team behind Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap remake, the developers have looked to build on the cult classic trilogy’s gameplay “with new mechanics, a fresh story and a gauntlet of dangerous stages with a serious crime problem.”
You can either clean up the city on your own or team up with a friend to beat up the gangsters, in what is promised to be “a skull-bashing, chicken-chomping delight all set to a thumping soundtrack sure to get your blood pumping.”
