Sega Is Reportedly Planning To Revive The Classic Titles Altered Beast, Eternal Champions, And Kid Chameleon With Modern Reimaginings

Last week, during The Game Awards, Sega made an impactful series of announcements, confirming the future revival of at least five beloved classics that fans have been clamoring for. Following this revelation, just a day later, Sega hinted at more to come, expressing plans to resurrect additional fan-favorite classics.

Fast forward to the present, and gaming news outlet Gematsu has spotted Sega's recent move to trademark several of its vintage titles, such as Altered Beast, Eternal Champions, and Kid Chameleon. These three titles are revered entries in Sega's historic lineup, and though trademarking doesn't guarantee a comeback, it does suggest possible reincarnations of more games from Sega's extensive archive. This speculation aligns with rumors from last summer suggesting Sega was developing a new Altered Beast title.

Altered Beast, once a staple title included with the Mega Drive, holds a nostalgic spot in many gamers' hearts, which makes its return a potentially smart move for Sega, even though it wasn't critically acclaimed. In contrast, Eternal Champions, recognized as Sega's answer to Street Fighter II (which was exclusive to Super Nintendo at the time), was acknowledged as a solid fighting game with an array of intriguing characters. Lastly, Kid Chameleon, while being less well-known, offers a quintessentially early-'90s platforming experience that could potentially translate well into a contemporary 2.5D adventure in today's gaming landscape.
