We’ve covered Wonder Boy: A Dragon’s Trap recently and have been following Battle Princess Madelyn. I also grew up with Ghouls N’ Ghosts when I was a child – a game I spent endless nights playing and still to this day play on my old systems around Halloween. We keep hearing about Battle Princess Madelyn and boy are we excited for this one.
Battle Princess Madelyn pays tribute to such games as Ghouls N’ Ghosts, as well as Wonder Boy. Christopher Obritsch and his daughter Maddi are working together to bring to the Nintendo Switch, Wii U, PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Battle Princess Madelyn, a game that looks to fill a void that publishers like Capcom seem to have forgotten about.
For those who are looking to donate, check out the Battle Princess Madelyn Kickstarter.
Does this game not give you a good feeling? You can even try the first five stages on Windows.
