In 1989, SEGA released on of their most iconic video games, Golden Axe, into the arcades. Soon after, the game was ported to numerous home computers and a few consoles. When the SEGA Genesis (US) and Mega Drive (Europe, UK, Japan, etc.) were released, SEGA was quick to work on near perfect arcade ports for their powerful home console, including Golden Axe.
In the game, you play as one of three warriors in the land of Yuria. The heroes are Ax Battler; a sword-wielding barbarian, Tyris Flare; an Amazonian warrior and sword wielder, and Gilius Thunderhead; a dwarf who wields a battle ax. Each of the heroes posses an elemental magic as well, which they can unleash after collecting magic urns from the dwarf-like thieves in the game. Ax Battler controls earth magic, Tyris uses fire, and Gilius uses lightning. The heroes battle their way across the land, facing off against the forces of Death Adder, who has kidnapped Yuria’s King and Queen. The game is a classic side scrolling hack ‘n slash brawler, with a variety of enemies, boss battles, and mythical creatures.
Storm Collectibles is releasing figures based on the classic brawler. The first release features Ax Battler, paired with one of the Red Dragon’s that you can ride in the game. The figure includes swap out heads, interchangeable hands, a sword, and a fireball for the dragon. We picked up the figure from sponsor Entertainment Earth.
