The Namco Generations line of games has been an interesting one, giving us some rather excellent arcade experiences in Pac-Man Championship Edition DX and Galaga Legions DX. Do you remember that 1985's Metro-Cross was slated to get this same treatment with a game called Aero-Cross? It's all coming back to me now.
Considering how much we've actually seen of the project (very little), it shouldn't be too heartbreaking to hear that Aero-Cross has been canceled. If I'm being generous, I could maybe see this type of game performing decently on mobile devices, but it was likely never destined to have a huge audience no matter the platform. Bummer, though -- Metro-Cross was great.
