There are a lot of classic games that the modern era of gaming simply lacks. Each of us has a game that we hold deep within the darkest parts of our brain that constantly screams "oi, where's my sequel."

There's not much we can do about it though, other than talk about them in the vague hope that some company or another is listening in well-enough to know that we'd spend our hard-earned money on a new game.

Well, today isn't just about any game, it's about Power Stone.

What's Power Stone? Well, let us fill you in.

What is Power Stone?

Power Stone was originally an arcade game that then got put onto the much-beloved Sega Dreamcast.

The game had players battling it out in a 3D arena to try and whittle down their opponent's health bars and be the last one standing at the end of all of the carnage.

On top of that, it had a cast of absurd characters who could wield amazing weapons and even transform if they collected enough Power Stones.

Basically, it was great and was one of the only games at the time that felt anything like Smash Bros.

In this day and age, we need more good arena fighting games. We get a lot of indie ones, and they're great, but the mix of gameplay elements in Power Stone hasn't been seen since.

Alongside the fights themselves, which were great, you could also mix items together to unlock new weapons to use in your battles.

The colourful characters would have to be updated, but imagine what a modern-day Power Stone would look like.

It could be a stunning cel-shaded fighter, or just an incredibly pretty one, and we could get to throw down as characters from all over the world. Please Capcom, bring back Power Stone.
