Time hasn't been remarkably kind to the Battle Arena Toshinden franchise, but the release of the original game alongside the PSone in 1995 crystalized a moment in which the genre entered the 3D realm and blew the minds of gamers used to digitized sprites and side-scrolling planes. We'd love to see these characters and mechanics updated and honored with a fresh iteration; and if Mortal Kombat can become a worthwhile modern franchise, surely Toshinden has a chance.
