A new Yar's Revenge will be released soon

It's only taken this sequel 30 years. :P

I like the art direction. It's a nice re-imagining of the Yar's Revenge world. The gameplay looks fun, though it looks more like Sin & Punishment or Panzer Dragoon than it does Yar's Revenge. It could be good anyway though.

I saw this on RockPaperShotgun and holy shit I hated it. I'm sure it'll be a fun game, but I hate the art direction.

Who the hell thought it'd be a good idea to turn this:

If they're changing this much, why not just make a new IP?

Actually no, there was a sequel released on the Atari Flashback 2 console back in 2005.

This is a "re-imagining".

And to the original poster, the original is Yars' Revenge, not Yar's.
