Streets of Rage 4 on the way?!

An How To Kill An Hour favourite, Streets of Rage is coming back, better than ever! (We do love ourselves Streets of Rage. Check out our Raging Justice play through here!)

Streets of Rage 4 is on the way courtesy of Dotemu and Lizardcube in partnership with Sega.  Developers of Streets Of Fury, which was released in 2015 which used digitized graphics, Guard Crush Games will also have a hands on involvement in the game.


Fans of the game will be well aware of the characters that users will be utilising.  You will take on Axel and Blaze in ” “an entirely original arcade-style romp”, which will of course feature the same gameplay that you’re used to.

However, there will be new fighting mechanics and an original story. It’s a direct sequel to 1994’s Streets of Rage 3 and will feature some hand drawn visuals. Which is different to many games out there and we’re definitely looking forward to seeing it in action!

History Lesson

Sega’s hugely successful Streets of Rage franchise started life in 1991 on the Sega Genesis. It was then followed up by a duo of sequels in 1992 and ’94. It was mainly popular for it’s infections game mechanics and Yuzo Koshiro’s music!

However what consoles that Streets of Rage 4 would be coming to was not announced. Nor was a release date. We’ll keep an eye out for it!
