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.

Looks like it should be a fun game

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.

  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
    for people with beefy hands.
