Rumor: SEGA Australia was working in 'Golden Axe' remake

SEGA Australia is the developer behind the Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse remake (by the way, it will be released this week) but this game has not been its only work.

The studio wanted to create a new line of remakes under the seal “SEGA Reborn”, where all the games inside this new brand should take place in the same universe. For example, a game like Out Run would take place hundreds of years after Golden Axe. Weird.

Other titles that SEGA Australia wanted to develop were Shinobi and Street of Rage,  but this option is now almost impossible: the studio will be closed by the end of the year.

Luckily, we can watch a video from a Golden Axe pre-alpha build that shows how SEGA Australia would have remade this SEGA Classic
