Streets of Rage 4 - Information Thread, update - "Mr. X Nightmare" DLC announced

Recommended Posts






A cult classic


Streets of Rage, known as Bare Knuckle (ベア・ナックル Bea Nakkuru) in Japan, is a trilogy of beat 'em up games developed and published by SEGA in the 1990s.

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.


Featuring hand-drawn visuals from the team behind 2017’s gorgeous Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap remake, Streets of Rage 4 builds upon the classic trilogy’s gameplay with new mechanics, a fresh story and a gauntlet of dangerous stages with a serious crime problem. Streets of Rage 4 recalls classic gameplay but it stands as an entirely original arcade-style romp thanks to the expertise of Guard Crush Games and Dotemu.


Whether players gang up with a friend or clean up the city solo, Streets of Rage 4 is a skull-bashing, chicken-chomping delight all set to a thumping soundtrack sure to get your blood pumping.



  • The comeback of the legendary Streets of Rage series.
  • Beautiful graphics fully hand-drawn animated by the studio behind Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap.
  • Classic gameplay enhanced with brand new mechanics.
  • Braised chicken served on a pristine plate.

    I'm interested. But the biggest problem I've had with games of this style is getting the depth alignment when attacking right always feels annoying to me. I often feel like I should be on the correct plane, but am not.

    Surprising, odd, but in! Would have and am still open to original Phantasy Star remake! Hey Sega, while you're feeling free with the old IPs, let's see:


    1.) Zillion

    2.) Golden Axe

    3.) Space Harrier

    4.) Shining Force

    5.) Panzer Dragoon

    I hope the music in that trailer does not represent the music of the game.  Not really feeling the watercolor look, but the devs behind it are good so I certainly hope the game plays well.  


    Needs more songs like this one

    Music is what really was amazing in that game and they absolutely need Yuzo Koshiro to  do the music to really pay a homage to the original games.  I hope Sega doesn't botch this.  One of my most beloved Genesis games (SOR2)
