      Wait theres no physical copy? I thought that there would be, well I hope that Sega likes it enough to possibly purchase the developmental company that made the game not to mention why have they not bought out Westone bit yet? They should if Sega is able to purchase other companies in the past years just imagine it being with Atlus, that be cool.

    Finished my first playthrough of this today and it was great. I’d never played it before, but I can see why it’s such a classic. It really is a mini “Metroidvania.” Although most of the new music is quite good, I liked the beach music best in the original because of its sad tone. The new one seemed to miss out on that quality.
