Sega has released a new trailer which provides the first look at the gameplay that will underpin its hotly anticipated retro beat-em-up Streets of Rage 4.
The publisher said: “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.”
Sega pointed out that: “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.”
Sega has not yet announced a release date for Streets of Rage 4, nor even which platforms it will be released on. But if you like what you see and are hungry for more Streets of Rage 4-related information, keep an eye on the game’s website.
