    Atlus USA have announced that they will be bringing Success's scrolling fighter "Yajuu Keiji: Tokyo Douji Tahatsu Tero o Chinatsu Seyo!" to the West under the more simple title "Tokyo Beat Down".

    Famitsu gave the game 22/40 but then they are often wrong when it comes to non-RPG/adventure games. I'm not sure if I want this or not, on one hand its looks crappy on the other I'm a sucker for scrolling fighters. Whatever the game is out in March.

    Yeah, just caught the news of this over on GoNintendo. Very cool!

    I remember when the game first surfaced -- I never imagined we'd see an English version. But leave it to Atlus, with their zany flavor in games, to bring it over.

    I'm not expecting Shenmue or Yakuza, but it looks like it will be a damn fun, if shallow, brawler in the vein of Golden Axe.

    It looks kind of shitty, but it probably has that Atlus charm that will make me enjoy it.

    Looks like it should be a fun game [​IMG]

    I like the side-scrolling beat'em up games like this.

    I tried the Japanese version out of curiosity and wasn't impressed with it at all, and I normally love beat-em-ups. But then again, I only played it for 10 minutes.
