Arguably one of, if not, the best beat em’ up franchises of all time, is Streets of Rage, with the second one being damn near perfect. So many classic game series have been making a comeback in the last couple of years, and it’s finally time for this one to roar back onto the scene. DotEmu is handling it this time around, and since they’re also in charge of Windjammers 2, I think it’s safe to say that they’re gonna have a real good year.
The gameplay shown in the trailer above for Streets of Rage 4 looks just as punchy and satisfying as ever. I think my one complaint so far is that the backgrounds that I’m seeing are pretty drab compared to the Genesis titles. The first stage of Streets of Rage 2 is so bright and beautiful, while being dank and dirty all at the same time. It could just be that the setting is different and much less “neon”, but I hope to see a wider variety of playable areas in the full game.
Check out the trailer above and let us know if you’re excited to finally come back to the Streets of Rage series after all this time!
