Final Fight and Magic Sword Beating their Way to PSN, XBLA

1 min read


Good news for fans of classic side-scrolling beat ‘em ups. Capcom is porting two of their most classic to PSN and XBLA; the seminal Final Fight, and the equally awesome Magic Sword. Even better is that they’ll be bundled together and billed as “Final Fight: Double Impact”

Ufortunately unlike other Capcom classics like Super Street Fighter 2 and Puzzle fighter they will not be getting a graphical overhaul, instead being emulated versions of the original arcade games. They will include graphical filters though, Like Marvel vs Capcom 2 did as well as a mode that keeps the aspect ratio of the original games, but adds a border that looks like an arcade cabinet, keeping the nostalgia aspect in place.

The best part? Online drop-in/drop-out co-op. Hell yeah!

If you can’t wait to destroy a car, or destroy stuff as Guy or Cody in Super Street fighter IV, perhaps destroying one in Final Fight in the meantime.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
