Are you getting a little tired of all these retro throwbacks of classic scrolling beat-em-ups Plagiung the Nintendo Switch eShop? No? Good, because there is another coming on to the Nintendo Switch this year and it will put all the others to shame.
Don’t get me wrong. The likes of Double Dragon have always been great fun but there is only so much pixelated goodness one can take. We live in the 21st century after all, times and graphics have changed, for better or worse. So here is where the next contender steps in, welcome Raging Justice.
This 2D scrolling brawler is developed by MakinGames, and is founded by an ex rare employee, Nic Makin. It has also been announced that Team17 have taken on the publishing for the game as well.
To help whet your appetite, here is an announcement trailer for the game.
