E3 2005: Capcom announces Final Fight: Street Wise

The classic brawler that started Capcom's love affair with the genre is coming back on the Playstation 2. This 3-D update puts Cody in the hands of the villains and it's up to his brother to rescue him.

The beat-em-up genre has been on its last legs for years now, living on slightly when mixed into titles like God of War. The recent update of Sega's Spikeout, along with Sony's Rise to Honor are two previous titles that attempted to resurrect the classic gameplay. Sony's Playstation 2 launched with Square's dud The Bouncer. Whether or not this new Final Fight finally brings the beat-em-up back to life won't be known until it's released.
