The move from 2D visuals to 3D in videogames was a seismic shift that propelled gaming into the mainstream. But it never occurred to me that maybe the 2D protagonists didn’t want to gain a 3rd dimension. Maybe they were content enough being flat.

It isn’t immediately obvious what sort of animal Fin is, but with those big-ears I’d hasten a guess at a fennec fox. This would make him the latest fox-based video game character after Lucky from New Super Lucky’s Tale, Kingsley, Fox McCloud and many more. After his arrival on Nintendo Switch in 2019, today sees the arrival of Fin and the Ancient Mystery on Xbox.
Inspired by the classics - how many times have we said that over the years?! - Aksys Games have today announced that their 2D pixel art fighter, Blazing Strike, will be coming to PC and console in 2022.
