If you, like a bunch of us here at Back2Gaming, miss the days side scrolling arcade beat-’em-ups, then you’re in luck. Deep Silver and Southend Interactive’s Â Sacred Citadel looks like a throwback to the days of Golden Axe set within the SacredÂ universe. That comparison is definitely a good thing, as Â theÂ Golden Axe series (well, the first few installments, anyway) is a fondly remembered bunch of games.
The trailer rattles off a short list of things to expect from the game while providing pretty much nothing but gameplay footage, which is a good thing. One thing I noticed here is that the action seems to be locked to a single 2D plane, like theÂ ShankÂ games. And will you look at that stylized art direction? If Sega ever made something along the lines of Â this instead of the awfulÂ Golden Axe: Beast Rider, then theÂ GAÂ series would still somewhat be alive and well, don’t you think? But I digress. Enjoy the trailer, folks.
Sacred CitadelÂ will hit Playstation 3, Xbox360, and PC sometime next year.
