Galaxy Force II remade into a special edition

Sega’s next Sega Ages game is Galaxy Force II: Special Extended Edition. The Playstation 2 package contains both releases (Japanese and international) of the original 1998 arcade game plus the two home console ports for the Sega Genesis and Master System. New for the Playstation 2 Sega Ages remake is Neo Classic Mode which cleans up the 3D graphics and has a widescreen 16:9 format too. Is that enough to get people to buy Galaxy Force II again? Maybe the right question to ask is does anyone even remember Galaxy Force II?

    Despite Sega’s best endeavors, there’s never truly been an arcade perfect port of Galaxy Force II on any past consoles. Not even on the Saturn, which up until now is the most faithful conversion of the original coin-op classic.

    Galaxy Force II may not be remembered as Sega’s most memorable arcade titles, especially in comparison to Out Run, After Burner II, and Space Harrier, but I find an completely accurate port of the arcade title is very necessary at this point.

    It was nice of Sega to throw in a little extras to seal the deal as well. I really couldn’t see myself playing the Genesis and Master System versions, only because even at the time they were far from what I would call faithful to Galaxy Force II, but the Neo Classic Mode sounds interesting. Cleaning up the 3D graphics is a commendable job as it is, but adding widescreen 16:9 support has me sold.
