new watermelon mega drive game beat em up screenshots leaked

It would seem the first couple of shots of watermelons new mega drive beat em up / rpg have surfaced online. It's hard to know if they're real they look more like a neo geo game!

Neo-Geo actually wasn't all that more powerful than the MD, imo. It just could display way more colors than the MD, way larger sprites (without any "sprite flicker") and could do super-fast scaling. The cartridges also had way more storage space than the MD ones. The thing is just that those features costed a small fortune back then.

Colour wise the mega drive is weak against the neogeo and this game seems to be really pushing the palette if the shots are legit :)

Just noticed that these shots actually look to be off the box. The glass smash in the corner gives it away. . .

I seriously can't wait for this, can't remember the last time I was this excited about a game.

I think if its even half the game SOR2 is then it should be great. And as long as its not as repetitive as Beats of rage. If this is genuine and appears on Megadrive or MCD ill be there.
