Lizardcube– the French studio which worked on both the Wonder Boy: Dragons Trap remake and Streets of Rage 4– has an extraordinary talent for making traditional video games actually sing in HD, and two of its artists, Ben Fiquet and Julian Nguyen-You, have actually invested a little time picturing what a sequel to SNKs classic Garou: Mark of the Wolves might look like.
The time-lapse above shows the set at work, from looking into existing official art all the way approximately gathering their own take on the game, along with the detail background art work. It reveals just how much work goes into creating idea work, and likewise makes us truly, truly desire Lizardcube to work on this video game.
Part of the Fatal Fury series of one-on-one fighters, Mark of the Wolves introduced on the Neo Geo back in 1999, and was later on ported to the Sega Dreamcast. It concerned the Switch eShop in 2017.
SNK is clearly available to reanimating its older franchises, but could it be convinced to permit an external studio to manage such a task? Let us understand what you believe with a comment below.
