Sega Megadrive 90s Classic 'Streets Of Rage' Is Finally Making A Comeback

Sega Megadrive 90s Classic 'Streets Of Rage' Is Finally Making A Comeback

It's very good news for fans of retro gaming, as more than 25 years after the original hit our Sega Megadrives, Streets of Rage Four is set to be released.

The game, which was a cult classic when released all the way back in 1991, spawned three sequels (but don't bother with the third because it was woeful) and is now set to get a long-awaited fourth thanks to publisher DotEmu and developers Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games.

A trailer has dropped but reveals few details other than the fact it will remain in glorious 2D-scrolling format, albeit with sharper graphics - and to confirm that Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding will be back. However, the third member of the original trio, Adam Hunter, who only made cameo appearances in the sequels, isn't featured.


As for bad-guys, well, who knows? But hopefully Mr X will be back to bring some 'lashing-the-controller-at-the-screen' moments.

According to a brief description on the game's website: "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".

Of course, fans of the originals are excited already:


As yet, there's no information on when it will be arriving or on what platforms, so looks like we'll have to sit tight and just keep our fingers crossed, eh?

Until then, I think now is the perfect time to go back and replay the originals.
