MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has posted up a video today announcing that Galaxy Fight is now playing the blues in the PSN Import Store.
To quote: When my son talks about his favorite rock bands and the music of today, I always advise him to listen to the blues.
To fully understand music, you have to look at its roots. The blues brought us many of today's contemporary sounds. Art of any form is a collection of creative inspiration. Past masters influence resonate with today's prodigies and new art is conceived. The same is true of games.
One reason retro gaming is enjoying its recent renaissance is because gamers want to go back to their roots. Today's games, with their mesmerizing graphics, sometimes lack a simple hook. Graphics can become a form of marketing, which can distort the mechanics and gameplay. Retro games didn't have that luxury.
MonkeyPaw is all about the chance to relive some of those great games that made you a gaming junkie. So today we present a title that reminds us of our fighting game foundations. Galaxy Fight is a classic SunSoft title that strangely never found its way West.
You'll see the first time an "endless" platform was used in a fighting game and how well it influenced other games. Galaxy Fight has a rhythm that just flows into fun. Retro gaming is where you'll see today's games in their infancy... and you might even hear a little blues humming inside your head.
Galaxy Fight is available from PlayStation Store from 10 January, 2012.
