Streets of Rage 4

Publisher Dotemu (Wonder Boy, Windjammers 1/2) and developers Lizardcube (Wonder Boy) and Guard Crush Games today revealed Streets of Rage 4, an all-new continuation of SEGA’s iconic arcade brawler series known for its radical fights, jammin’ ‘90s beats and dashing sparring gloves and bandanas.

Famously known for its non stop action and electronic dance influenced music – scored by Yuzo Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima – the series has gained the status of cult classic throughout the years. It is considered one of the best beat ’em up series of all time. After many years, Axel and Blaze are finally picking up the fight where they left.

23 years after the last game, Streets of Rage is making a comeback. SoR was one of my all time favourite games back in the day. Hours upon hours slumped behind the Sega Mega Drive with friends, all trying to get the highest score and kill combos. At this point I don’t know who’s to thank for this, but I’ll say this. With Sonic Mania, Two Point Hospital on the way (Theme Hospital’s spiritual successor) and now the next Rage title in the pipeline, Sega are knocking it out of the park.

Here, have a trailer to whet your appetite. Then go and bookmark the official website.
