Faxanadu II by slipgunk Faxanadu II by slipgunk
This is a mockup I made for a contest at Swedish videogame forum Cowabunga. I know that Faxanadu is a Legend of Xanadu/ Dragon Slayer spinoff, but I´ve always wanted a proper sequel to the NES game.

totally agreed, and I would love to see a remake or a sequel, this was one of the best games on the NES hands down

Faxanadu was an amazing game. Its music is probably the best part.
An often underrated NES-masterpiece.

Awesome! Faxanadu was one of my favourite games as a kid. I would love to play a sequel, and your "Root of Evil" idea fits in really well with the whole World Tree setting.

Thanks! What wouldnŽt I do to play a sequel.... Unfortunatly very unlikely to ever happen, but I figured the roots would be a relatively sensible setting for a new game. On the other hand, the hero did slay the Evil One down the roots in the original game. But why not dig further :) Faxanadu is wonderful!

I thought the Evil One was in the cliff city nearby (Dartmoor, I think it was called), where the asteroid landed? Man, it's been so long since I last played that game.

Hey, you may be right! IŽve only played the beginning in recent years, so perhaps he wasnŽt down the roots after all :)

My compliments on your excellent taste for videogames ^^

This year Kid Icarus: Uprising was revealed. There is still hope for sequels to the neglected gems of videogame history!

Nice you like it! It´s certainly not without flaws, but the idea with the roots worked out like I wanted it to...
