has finally been given both a release date and a price, hitting the Marketplace on April 14th and setting you back a very reasonable 800 MSP.
The game is a duel release of classic side-scrolling beat 'em up Final Fight
and fantasy game Magic Sword
, both Capcom 16-bit classics. Both games have enhanced graphic modes, fully remixed soundtracks and new online co-op while keeping a frame-accurate arcade experience.
Final Fight: Double Impact is a dual release of two classic arcade side-scrolling beat-em-ups. First up is Final Fight, where players follow the heart-pounding adventures of Cody, Guy, and Haggar – three heroes fighting their way across crime-ridden Metro City in hopes of saving Haggar's daughter from the evil clutches of Mad Gear. There are 6 stages filled with perilous challenges where the only hope for justice is the unique fighting techniques mastered by each character. With the exciting news that Cody and Guy will both be playable characters in Super Street Fighter® IV, Capcom fans now have the chance to take get to know these characters again in their first gaming appearance before playing them in the new Street Fighter® game.
In Magic Sword, users will take on the role of the "The Brave One," a fierce warrior who bears the daunting responsibility of cleansing evil forces from an ancient tower. As a consequence of his actions, he will inevitably meet the source of this scourge upon humanity – the dark lord Drokmar. But fear not as the hero is accompanied by eight allies who will lend their assistance through out the game. All of them bring specific skills and talents to contribute to the fight. It's amazing side-scrolling action illustrated in classic fantasy stylings, making a perfect pairing with Final Fight.
Two great, old school side-scrollers in one bundle, at a great, low price. You could do a lot worse!
