Gaming Anniversaries December 27- Golden Axe II

Released December 27, 1991- Golden Axe II

Golden Axe II slammed the Japanese market on this day in 91. For the Sega Mega Drive!

Golden Axe II is the sequel to the hack and slash adventure Golden Axe. It features many of the same controls and abilities in addition to a continuation of the original story.

Featuring the same medieval setting as the original, the game has players controlling Ax-Battler, Tyris-Flare and Gillius Thunderhead as they try to save the world from Dark Guld, who was supposedly imprisoned but has escaped after the evil Death Adder was stopped!  Furthermore, he got his grubby mitts on the Golden Axe! Dark Guld and his minions are using it to cause chaos across the land!

Golden Axe II features the same hack and slash gameplay players loved from the original. However, it steps it up a notch and now includes mounts such as dragons and other vicious beasts to add to the players attack power!

Golden Axe is one of the most beloved games of the Mega Drive/ Genesis era. In fact, it received the 14’th spot on many lists of the best games of all time! What do you think of its sequels? Let us know in the comments down below!
