  1. late to the party much?

    I too was very deep surprise and excited by this news. Though according to PlaystationLifestyle interview with STUDIO Hive, the game will be in 3D Side Scroller.

    Hearing that breaks my excitement, this game needs to be in 3D not a Side Scroller. It being in side scroller would limit the functionality and features the player could do and experience.

    It's coming out on xbox 360 & ps3, I doubt it, for a game like that being a side scroller, coming out for PSN & Xbox Live is the best deal.

    And I don't agree with Saha Films about looking at STUDIO Hive being the best candidate. They chose them because they are thai studios and do not want Western devs to "butcher" the game's opportunity.

    It's more to do with the "Thai Thing"
