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.

Streets of Rage, known as Bare Knuckle 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.

Key Features

- 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.

If there's a 16bit gfx option then I'll buy without hesitation.

Saw this on Twitter, thought it was just fan project... turns out actual genuine thing.

Here's hoping it delivers, do really like the art style though.

Do want, want very much.
Art style doesn’t look bad, in time I think it will grow on me.
That music wasn’t so hot. They need to hunt down those responsible from the originals to do the music.

Hopefully this is coming to consoles & not some iOS / Android mobile bollocks.

You should see what wonder boy looks like in motion. It's incredible. Having 60 unique frames of animation does a lot. I am pumped.

Yeah fair enough. Aesthetics are personal taste. Line if it was 2.5d polygonal I'd be less interested but some people like that.

So long as you can still eat a chicken out of a bin we should all be grateful.

Wow!

I've been impressed with SEGA how they listened the public and brought Sonic back where it supposed to be. Also, re-released Shenmue HD too!

I'm hoping they get some of the other characters into the game. Really need Skate and Max. I'd also like Dr Zan.
