    Almost everywhere that reported this left off the most important part: "and PC."

    excited.. but some gameplay would be nice. Curious if they'll go pixel art or do something more 3d.. (hoping for pixels)

    Wow this looks really great. I might actually buy a game for my Nintendo Switch now. I just hope it has online multiplayer and is not just offline co-op!

    Let's hope they're lazy enough to transfer everything from the original unchanged, so at least the gameplay will sty intact. I'm not a fan of those iOS-style graphic designs. Enhancing such a big classic can only end in messing it up. The big challenge is to adapt the controls onto the Switch specifics. Fingers crossed they'll deliver.

    Maybe not. It seems most indie developers are saying that most of their sales are on Switch and PC these days even with the PS4's massive install base. PS4/Xbox users tend to stick with the AAA retail games.
    Whatcha gonna do?

    I totally agree. At least Gamadelic seems to be aboard so we can hope for an awesome soundtrack. Those in-game graphics look meh though already

    I'd buy it 100% if there's a physical version. Digital only...not sure. Have to wait on reviews.

    You can't imagine it in motion? Imagine those "fireball laser" effects in all their solid 2-color hard-line glory. If that isn't enough to imagine, picture that guy's body swinging as if it were a piece of paper on a little metal swivel.

    This game looks like it is in need of quality motion blur.

    I was hella excited when I saw this trailer pop up, but the graphics definitely have me concerned.

    As much as I’ve always preferred hand drawn special move effects in 2D games to the CG ones from Naomi games, this could definitely benefit from switching to that more early 2000’s aesthetic. Those super move effects look like they’re gonna be a tween animation nightmare in motion.

    I was really hoping, especially considering how many excellent pixel artists there are these days, that they would have just stuck with pixel art.

    Edit: Oh, they did the wonder boy port for switch? That makes me feel a little better. Maybe you’ll even be able to switch over to the original pixel art like you could in that game.

    So you'll buy a shitty game if its on a worthless piece of plastic, but you might not support a good game if its not?
    Whatcha gonna do?
