[Streets of Rage 4] Yes, its coming. Really.

I couldn't believe it when I saw it, but Sega are finally bringing Streets of Rage back, courtesy of the guys behind the recent Wonder Boy remake.



It's got hand drawn graphics, it looks fairly similar to the classic games, gameplay-wise, and Axel has a beard now. I'm excited.

    But will they replace the house soundtrack with dubstep?

    This intrigues me. I can see a company doing it justice. WayForward I felt did a great job with Contra 4.

    In this day and age, I'm guessing there won't be a cop car rolling up and nuking every bad guy on screen a la Streets of Rage 1.

    No, only the black bad guys. /joke /donthurtme

    I'm actually stoked on this. Streets of Rage 2 and 3 were my favorite genesis games to coop as a kid. Love those games and I hope they do this justice. Excited to see which other characters they'll add.

    I didn't even think about the fact it's a teaser trailer. I was all disappointed it was just going to have 2 chatacters. I feel dumb now lol

    I doubt they're going to be able to get Yuzo Koshiro for the soundtrack. But I can always hope.
    Edit - Does anyone know anything about the developer for this? I don't know them by name.

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.
    American politics isn't 4D chess, it's just if you give a shit about other people or not.

    Lizardcube made Wonder Boy, and Guard Crush Games made Streets of Fury which is basically an SOR clone a la Mortal Kombat style graphics. Looks like two very capable developers that can make a faithful sequel at a decent scale. Whether or not they execute it, I guess we'll see. I definitely would love to see a gameplay trailer though.

    My brother and I put so many hours into SoR 2. SO MANY.

    Skate was my boy, he was awesome. Being the only character who could dash was reason enough to never drop him.

    I never liked the feel of SoR3, something felt off.

    I liked Roo and Shiva in SOR3. I didn't like not being able to pick up items. Max and Blaze were my favorite from SOR2.

    Well, good morning. Welcome to the new scenario. What should we do today?
  • T-DangerT-Danger Registered User regular
    I always imagined that if Sega ever did bring back Streets of Rage, they'd pull a Sonic Mania and do the whole thing in the pixel style of the originals, just with sharper graphics. I will say, I'm digging the hand drawn style they're going for here, I can't wait to see more of it in motion.

    I hope the devs take some of the ideas from SOR 3 and SOR Remake. Things like the special meter, branching paths and gaining new moves via your high score really helped elevate the series beyond the other brawlers out there.

    And it'll probably never happen, but I'd love to see guest characters from Sega's other beat-em-ups over the years. Bring in Bruno 'Not!Bruce Willis' Derlinger from Die Hard Arcade, Rikiya Busujima from Zombie Revenge, hell even Kiryu and Majima.

    @linda0009 What?


    I am cautiously optimistic about this. So many aspects of the game don't age well but I have some fond memories of playing this to death with my brothers.

    I’m so getting this. I love the beat em up genre and I’m all too happy to support it. Hopefully it’ll lead to a proper Golden Axe revival as well.

    Looking forward to see the real in-game video... I am not sure that the ones on the trailer are the final one and more over the one from the game engine itself...
