Beat 'em ups really need to make a return in this generation, but for now, we'll settle with revisiting the old-school classics.
According to IGN , Capcom has revealed that Final Fight: Double Impact will hit the PSN and XBLA in April of 2010. It's not called "Double Impact" because it's somehow based on the Van Damme movie; it has that title because when you download it, you'll also receive another classic: Magic Sword . If you love the side-scrolling adventures of yesteryear, you're gonna love these two games; in fact, it's very likely you're quite familiar with both, provided you're old enough. We'll also get two separate visual modes; one of them boasts the original look of the game while the other makes it "shine in crisp and clear HD glory." We're not entirely sure how Final Fight would look in high-definition, but we certainly appreciate the effort. We're don't yet know how much this one download is going to cost, but for both games mentioned here, I imagine many veteran gamers would be willing to shell out at least a few bucks. Right?
Yeah, you've got something similar with that special mode in Tekken 6 but there's really nothing like the old-fashioned side-scrolling brawlers.
