Streets of Rage is an incredibly popular beat 'em up franchise which has a strong following even after all these years. Recently, the Sega Genesis Collection gave current-generation console owners the ability to play the classics again. However, the controls and visuals don't appeal to a modern crowd. It's been many years until we received a new Streets of Rage experience. Raging Justice comes close, but it's not exactly the same.
The previous Streets of Rage games are good, but they're very dated and it shows. Luckily, there's a new one coming soon. Today, publisher Dotemu announced Streets of Rage 4. According to the description, the game is a "continuation of Sega's iconic arcade brawler series known for its radical fights, jammin' '90s beats, and dashing sparring gloves and bandanas. Whether players gang up with a friend or clean up the city solo, Streets of Rage 4 is a skull-bashing, chicken-chomping delight."
Streets of Rage 4 appears to have received Sega's blessing to move forward. The title features hand-drawn visuals from the team behind the Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap remake. Aside from that, there are new mechanics, story, and stages. The title is meant for modern devices and only pays homage to the prequels.
Platforms haven't been revealed due to some obscure reason. It might not end up on Xbox One, so don't get your hopes up, but we do know that it's coming to PC.
