It’s been ages since the classic 16-bit beat-em-up series Streets of Rage got any love. But all that’s about to change as Dotemu, Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games release Streets of Rage 4. And we learned today that the new installment will pay tribute to its origin era in a big way.
Sega has many neglected series from its past….some of its most painfully ignored today are some of its earliest. That’s why developer Lizardcube is doing the Lord’s work — picking up some of Sega’s more obscure licenses and making new games out of them. They were the ones who created Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap in 2017, and now they’ve turned their attention to Streets of Rage.
