    I was excited to see it's free on my gamepass. Will definitely (at least I hope) punch through it for a couple hours.

    Hoping it unlocks at 11PM tonight the April 29th (just over 3 hours from now), that's the standard for Xbox in Central USA time zone right?

    I actually beat through in co-op with my brother a few weeks ago, one of the Streets games on the Sega Genesis Mini. It was a bit boring but ok i guess. Actually I think we may have exhausted our continues before beating it...

    John's DF retro video really sold me on this game. Will be buying it as soon as my check comes in. I never played the original games when i was a kid with a Genesis, but yuzo suzuki's music is dear to any shinobi fan...and i do have the trilogy for 360 on that genesis collection they put out. Will try and complete those before i move on to this

    Suuuuuckkkks wanted to sample it this evening. Oh well no big.

    Edit: I'm confused does PS get it ten hours early or 14 hours late than all the other plats?

    I'm avoiding that DF retro vid because I want to go in as clean as I can, not spoiled on the look of the various stages etc. Maybe I'll watch a bit.

    Depends on where you live. On Steam, everyone gets access to it at the same time. On Nintendo there are 2 different launch times for the EU and NA.

    On PlayStation and Xbox, it's a staggered launch (24 different "launch times"). Well, probably less since some time zones might not have a country that it is releasing in.

    This is on my radar now. Great video DF. Guess I will check it out on Game Pass tonight. Maybe my best bus will be interested in some online co-op?

    That's fine. 1st level I played was excellent. Afraid to play more without my buddy.

    Downloading it. It is crossplay. Now I can still play the series once again with my best friend. We beat SoR 1, 2 and 3 when we were kids on his Megadrive, and now I hope we beat the game playing at home, but online. I got the gamepass PC version and my best friend has the Xbox One S version. I can't wait.

    Is it cross play between consoles too?

    Nope.

    Seems like porting was done by different studios as well.

    Really bizarre decisions on the Xbox/WinStore version.

    Judging by some of the gallery art, I wonder if we'll actually see remakes of the trilogy if Sega deems this a success... :cool:

    What might have happened was that the Win10/XO porting team had a slightly older build when the devs added those features late in the schedule for Steam.
