First Ass-kicking Gameplay Footage of Streets of Rage 4 Released

Publisher and developer Dotemu (game design) and developers Lizardcube (art direction) and Guard Crush Games (programming) today bless the world with a first look at the lifebar-draining brawls of Streets of Rage 4, an all-new entry to SEGA’s most iconic beat ‘em up series.

The clip finds our dear friends Axel and Blaze reunited and dishing out beatdowns – with all-new moves – to a fledgling group of ill-advised criminals in full force. Streets of Rage 4’s vibrant visuals, courtesy of the team behind 2017’s stunning Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap remake, bring the game’s troubled city to life with a fluid, exaggerated style. The game’s hand-drawn animation adds a burst of flair to every pummelling while still encompassing the gritty aesthetic perfected within the original trilogy.

Streets of Rage 4 is the first instalment to the mainline series in more than two decades and will revitalise the iconic baddie-bashing gameplay with modern touches, fresh pulsing jams, and more surprises to be revealed. The team behind Streets of Rage 4 is drawing from a lifetime of love for brawlers to introduce new fans and remind veterans alike why Streets of Rage is one of SEGA’s most beloved series.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
