Streets of Rage 4 revives Sega's classic beat 'em up after nearly 25 years

  1. The first new Street of Rage game in nearly 25 years was announced on Monday courtesy of publisher Dotemu and developers Guard Crush Games and Lizardcube.

    The first game in the beat em up franchise launched way back in 1991 for the Sega Genesis with the final (until now) arriving in 1994. It went toe-to-toe with Final Fight in the early 90s as arguably one of the best side-scrolling fighting series around.

    Streets of Rage 4 will feature hand-drawn visuals from the team responsible for the artwork in Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. It’ll build on the trilogy’s classic gameplay with fresh mechanics and a new story complete with “a gauntlet of dangerous stages with a serious crime problem” featuring familiar faces Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding.

    The game doesn’t yet have a release date, nor do we know which platforms it’ll be available on or how much it’ll cost. We do know, however, that it’ll offer both solo and multi-player action, the latter of which will likely be both online and locally if we had to guess.

    Found is a TechSpot feature where we share clever, funny or otherwise interesting stuff from around the web.

    I hope this will be better than Double Dragon 4.

    I miss the sprite-based artworks of the previous games.

    This is too cartoonish and more like a mobile-based beat-em-up game.

    I really like the art direction. It's a nice mix of 80's look and feel with some modern animation techniques. I hope the animation is fluid in-game too.

    As long as it doesn't animates using 'tweening, all will be fine.
