Publisher Retrowave was so confident that their newest title could speak for itself, they literally embedded a video and called it the day on their press release email. If you asked me?it worked. I clicked on the video and was taken back to my childhood, watching a trailer for a title that could have easily been on the shelves with the likes of Ninja Gaiden, Bionic Commando and even Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight.
Taking place in a dystopian future, you’re retired cop Hal Bruzer coaxed out of retirement to bring order to Prison City and dethrone the Techno-Terrorists that run roughshod in the town. Armed with your trusty?Chakram(!#@?), you?re the only one capable of meting out justice in this lawless burg. It?s coming in 2023 and let?s hope future correspondences will include more information.
