SEGA updates Golden Axe Classic, now includes Golden Axe II and III

Back in August of 2017 Sega released a SEGA Forever title called Golden Axe Classic on Android. Today that Play Store release has been updated to include Golden Axe II and III and an "s" has been added to the end of the title so that it's now appropriately called Golden Axe Classics. A small distinction, but also a significant addition to the app that I'm sure any fan of the Golden Axe series will be excited to see.

Streets of Rage 2 Classic is the latest SEGA Forever title on the Play Store

Console beat 'em up 'Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn' is out on Android

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn was created thanks to an Indiegogo campaign that started back in 2014. After years of development a release was imminent, but then the beat 'em up was delayed thanks to some licensing issues. Much of the game had to be largely reworked, which is why it didn't get released on consoles until June 2018. Despite the change in genre from the original Shaq Fu 2D fighting game, the reception has been overwhelmingly positive. Now that the dust has settled, Android users finally get their very own version, and you can pick it up for free off of the Play Store right now.

[Hands-on] DC Unchained, another free-to-play mobile brawler that plays itself

DC Unchained is without a doubt DC Comics' take on the popular free-to-play mobile brawler Marvel Future Fight. You form teams of three heroes and villains to take on level after level of nondescript henchmen, all for the purpose of slowly but surely unlocking and leveling up your favorite characters from the comics. So while it is nice that we now have a DC-themed brawler to play with our favorite childhood DC Comic characters, the gameplay in this FTP mobile brawler is just as uninspired and grindy as ever.

True Survivors Crotch-Punch Nazis In the Official Kung Fury: Street Rage Mobile Game

If you were distracted by tons of Google I/O coverage or our NVIDIA SHIELD review yesterday, there's a slim chance that you missed the even bigger news: Kung Fury is now on YouTube. Stop reading this and go watch it now. Then come back here and read about the official mobile game for the indie movie, Kung Fury: Street Rage.

The mobile game recreates Kung Fury's extended hand-to-hand fight scene, in which the titular lone wolf cop/martial arts master/time traveler single-handedly attacks Hitler's Nazi army. Unfortunately it's not quite as complex as the original Streets of Rage beat-em-up: you only get two on-screen buttons, left and right.

There's a new Marvel movie coming out tomorrow in the US. You may have heard about it - it's kind of a big deal. So what better time for a developer to release a new game featuring as many Marvel (comics, not movies) characters as possible. You've got to have something to do while you ignore the repeating video ad for Dave's Discount Family Insurance that plays before the trailers start up, right?

Marvel Future Fight, a free-to-play beat-em-up featuring more comic book characters than a jaded movie blogger can remember, has actually been out for a little over a month in a limited-market soft launch.
