     > Some time after having acquired the California based development team, Secret Level, Sega finally released some details of their forthcoming retro remake, Golden Axe.  Not only will it receive a huge facelift, it's being developed for Xbox 360 and PS3.  Replacing the old-school hack'n slash gameplay will be a full featured, in depth action/adventure.  The ability to wield magic, ride various beasts on your journey, and conquer foes on foot will be a throw back.  What characters will return?  All that's been shown so far is the ever-beautiful Tyris Flare, in all her next-gen glory.  Will the arch nemesis be Death Adder, or one of his relatives?  The first two screenshots below are early views of the game's heroin, Tyris Flare.

     > As is turns out, the game's title has been updated to Golden Axe: Beast Rider. The artwork hitting the internet looks fantastic, so let's hope the gameplay is up to snuff. It's going to be a melee combat extravaganza. Sega has a lot to prove on this next-gen release, and I will be there on day one.
First Impression
     > Sega Fans have been wishing for the triumphant return of Golden Axe for a long time.  For me, the fact that it will be an action/RPG, is even more reason to be excited. Throw in a gorgeous rendition of Tyris Flare wielding an inferno of magic while taming beasts of burden, and you have the foundation of a rock solid hit yearning to be unleashed.
