Barbarian - Head chopping classic is coming to the Sega Dreamcast

Barbarian or as it was called in the United States, Death Sword, was first released in 1989 for the C64 and later ported to other systems including the Acorn, Amiga, Amstrad, Atari, Apple II, BBC Micro, MS-DOS and ZX Spectrum. It was a fine game indeed that featured a one to two player mode as each Barbarian faced each other off in deadly combat. What set this game apart from other combative titles was the ability to slice at each other to the death, which usually ended up with a head being chopped clean off and kicked to one side. It is was a game that has lived on through a generation and now it's the turn of the Sega Dreamcast to get involved as it is getting its very own port!

Shown off in the video above as a work in progress, Barbarian is coming to the Sega Dreamcast with all the best bits of the game intact including the famous head chopping move. Furthermore another interesting point is this version will include a choice of classic graphics from other versions such as the ZX Spectrum, Amiga, CGA, PC and even the C64!
