SEGA takes down Streets of Rage Remake downloads

SEGAbits: "Fans want a Streets of Rage Remake and SEGA didn't answer. What did they do? They did it themselves, without using any of SEGA's code. They recently released the final version of their game and it didn't excite SEGA too much." (PC, Retro, Sega, Streets of Rage, Streets of Rage 2)

Damn sux for those who didn't download it i downloaded it right away so i'm safe.

Yeah I downloaded it as well.
...Sega doesn't give the fans what they want, and they don't want anyone else to give it to them either. Look at the Sonic Remix thing.

Amateurs and fans are releasing better SEGA-games than Sega. How sad is that!?

i am sure it will end up on the torrent websites. If someone who downloaded it is kind enough to put it on a few.

SEGA are trash, they make trash games, they took the most iconic mascot and turned him into turd. We all know Sonic and his turd games and they cancel and fan games which are better then their games.

So f*** you piece of shit Sega.

SEGA should be honored that this team put together such an excellent remake! Very unfortunate to hear that they shut it down after all these years of hard work that BomberGames put into this...

8 years of effort down the drain, I haven't been depressed like this about a fan game since Chrono Trigger Crimson Echoes. (At least this got released, though...)

Bollocks I was meaning to download this, just been so busy this week. I'm sure someone will host it somewhere, it's the internet - you can't stop it!!

Such a shame too, if Sega decide to reboot the franchise it'll know doubt be an insult of a game too. The fans do it right.

Well since so many of you already got it, time to show some love and upload that baby for the rest of us.

As for the game itself, kodo's to the makers. Sega is pure trash and has been for almost a decade. Its just sad how they release genesis collections over and over, yet wont make anything new based off those legendary titles. If they had, I know I would have bought it (golden axe doesnt count for obvious reasons.)

I have been waiting for the final version but have not checked the project's site in a while. Fortunately I was able to get it off of another site. I am downloading it as I type this message and I cant wait to play it eventually. I have been a big fan of the series since the first streets of rage game released on the sega genesis many years ago, though if I had to choose my favorite one it would definitely be streets of rage 2. When I find that the download is legit I will upload it and post it here.

PM me when you get it up man!
I saw this a long time ago and forgot all about it. It's to bad SEGA has let all their classic franchises die or destroyed their name and appeal with piss poor reboots.

Sega would rather upload the original games running on an emulator with a filter and charge for them.

Well here it is SORR/BKR, get it while it lasts:
