Do you think Bloody Roar should get a reboot?

#1 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2363 posts) -

I'm playing Bloody Roar 2 on my PS3 right now and it's really making me wish this series was still around. The series hasn't exactly set any bars for quality, but they're hella fun and I absolutely love the concept of a fighting game where each character can turn into a badass animal. 
 
I think a reboot to this series could be great. With the right developer I think they could pull of a crazy (yet balanced) fighting game. I highly doubt it will ever happen though as Bloody Roar was never really that popular but hey, stranger things have happened. 
 
What do you duders think? Would you like to see a reboot to this series or should it stay dead like the dodo? (Yes, that was a really bad pun.)
 
P.S. Please don't bring up last years Bloody Roar 5 hoax. As a fan of this franchise I like to pretend that never happened.

Sure why not.

That...would be an odd choice to reboot. I don't think it would do well as the nostalgia for that game is limited to a very niche crowd. Then again... you could use that to your advantage to actually do something worthwhile with the name.

That's why I think it should be rebooted. It would bring that awesome concept to new players and give nostalgic fans a blast from the past.

No.

Bloody Roar was not a good game so I don't think anyone should waste their time trying to reboot it.

I would potentially play that. I had Bloody Roar on the gamecube and enjoyed it.

Yeah, I had it too. It wasn't a particularly good or deep fighting game, but in the right hands, the premise could really have some spark to it.

No. Rival Schools instead!

Primal Fury was great. I remember feeling like a pervert when I brought it up to the Gamestop cashier. 
 
And yeah, the premise is what I love most about the series. Humans that can transform into beasts in a fighting game. Brilliant.

This is also acceptable.

No.

Fondly remember PS1 games should remain just that, a memory, because they really were not good compared to the end of generation 16 bit games of two years prior, nor the 2D arcade games of the time.

And this comes from someone who just finished watching some Dr Who.

I'd love to see Netherrealm take a stab at a new Bloody Roar sometime.
