Now that the word is out and Capcom has made it official that Final Fight is making a return to Xbox Live Arcade and PSN (and thankfully not in a sequel to Streetwise, ugh), it is also doubling up with platformer Magic Sword.
However, Magic Sword, despite its fast-paced, enjoyable action, was not always the possible choice in this bundle. Two other considerations were a “similar but not quite Magic Sword” Black Tiger or the 360 horizontal shooter Forgotten Worlds.
Black Tiger is the only game in this whole set of four games that never had a home console port of any kind (multiple PCs were given a version however). It’s almost a shame that wasn’t chosen purely based on its obscurity, but obscurity does not lead to sales. Of course, there is always a Double Impact sequel to consider, right?
