    One of the more obscure yet delightfully charming original IP's on Xbox was a platforming title known as Voodoo Vince. Lost for years in obscurity, it seems Microsoft is finally giving the little guy some new threads in an upcoming remaster for Xbox One and PC in early 2017.

    Starting today, Voodoo Vince: Remastered will appear on Steam's Greenlight page, which means if enough people vote for it, a Steam version will be produced as well. Hopefully this precedent is set for future Xbox titles as well!

    I...have never even heard of this game. Was this back around the same year as Blinx?

    Awesome. Really hoping to see more original Xbox remasters in the future. Jet Set Radio Future PLZ.

    Very close to it yes, around early 2003. It was a really entertaining platform focused on dealing damage to yourself to harm enemies around you and stuff like that.

    Remasters that make most sense are those from the niche systems. Dreamcast and Xbox. Not fucking Skyrim.

    WOW, very nice!!!! I played the game back in the original Xbox.

    Now we just need Midtown Madness 3 remastered, or maybe Midtown Madness 4! :D

    Jet Set Radio Future and Ninja Gaiden on PC forever never :(


    I'm kinda surprised Bethesda hasn't made an HD remaster of Morrowind yet. I obv know why they didn't on PC, ya know, with mods. But for someone with consoles only, they'd have to hunt down an OG Xbox just to play it. Morrowind HD would probably sell pretty well on consoles.

    I also wonder if they'll HD remaster Fallout 3, NV, and Oblivion for next gen consoles. :P

    I forgot
    The game looks like it was so neat back in the day, but I can't say I've ever heard of it before in my life.

    Might have to pick it up, if it comes to PC.

    What about games that are incompatible with current systems? I enjoyed Windwaker HD and the original Grim Fandango crashes on my PC.

    I once played a pirated version of one of the midtown madness games (for the PC), maybe it's somewhere around here.
