Abobo's Big Adventure is the Game of the Year
Yes, that is Abobo, the big muscle dude from Double Dragon, punching his way through hordes of Kung-Fu guys, Death from Castlevania and the old man from the Legend of Zelda. My personal favorite part is that the seaweed in the Mario Bros. underwater stage electrocutes you. That's just cruel.
The game is set to be released later this year and is going to be free to play, likely to avoid copyright issues. Hopefully all of the companies who hold the rights to the games and sprites have any sort of sense of humor and allow this game to exist. I'm looking forward to this love letter to the NES one way or another.
You can find more information at the game's official site located here.
