Golden Axe was one of the best side scrolling beat-em-ups of the late 80’s and if any of you grew up with a Genesis / Mega Drive there’s a good chance that you’ve played it. Re-released on a number of game collections in the 90’s and recently on X-Box Live Golden Axe’s popularity has remained and the series was begging for a re-make. This year we’re getting exactly that thanks to Golden Axe, Beast Rider. This time it’s single player battlefield wide challenge where players take control of Tyris Flare, the female warrior from the original, who’s looking a lot better than I remember.
360Achievements.org have released a list of Achievements for the game. 40 in all they range from simply beating the game, clearing levels with a certain rank and beating up gnomes! Ah, I used to love beating up gnomes in the first game! Check out the full list of Achievements here. There’s no news of any Trophies for PS3 owners but should any news about them surface you’ll find it right here.
The game is due for release in the US on October 14th for both 360 and PS3 but has yet to get a concrete release date in the UK. The best I can find is a vague ‘October’. Now where is our Streets of Rage re-make Sega?
