Goof Troop on SNES was originally going to be a side-scroller


Goof Troop on SNES was a top-down game in the style of The Legend of Zelda, and it was a pretty good clone at that! Definitely one of the best licensed games on the SNES. Now through this newly-unearthed design doc, we see that the game was originally going to be a side-scroller! I'm sure that would have been great as well, but I'm glad Capcom ended up doing something unique!

Thanks to Kao for the heads up!

GameSpot Versus - Okami vs. Zelda: Twilight Princess

With Okami launching on Nintendo Switch, we thought we'd square Capcom's classic against another lupine adventure, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
