Streets of Rage 4 proved to be a very pleasant surprise when it was announced earlier this year. DotEmu's sequel is being crafted by Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap developer Lizardcube as well as Guard Crush Games, makers of Streets of Fury.
HOLY CRAP! it has improved quite a bit! I can see they've done some more passes over the art adding detail since they first showed it off. I'm wondering why they are so hush hush about the soundtrack? i'm hoping it's because Yuzo Koshiro is the composer and just doesn't have anything fully completed yet. but part of me fears it's because they fear backlash for having some other random composer(s)
Yeah that looks really slick. I love that comic book hand drawn look.
Honestly this style looks amazing! I don't get why people are so upset by it.. just preference I guess.
Isn't that clip just from the teaser? Still beautiful and all but nothing new. And I still want to see a GG side scroller along the same lines.
Before : https://o.aolcdn.com/images... After: https://gematsu.com/wp-cont... "nothing new"?
YES! I was thinking, "Wow, this is looking pretty decent!" If it's not Yuzo, then I hope they get the it just right. Soundtrack was what helped draw me in. Great game but good game soundtracks made me keep coming back more, too.
I'm so getting this.
It does look good; but I still fear games have lost the charm they had in the Nintendo/SNES, Genesis, and even N64 era.
Games did lose that charm. No question about it. But the great thing is that some developers are fantastic at recapturing that charm when making these retro style games.
Looks ok still not convinced by the graphical style though. Still can’t beat the pixel art from the originals for me. But will have to wait and see, the Takeover still looks better check that out!!
The takeover is also good but I'm a bit miffed that pelikan13 seems to have stopped development on 90's Super GP (formerly 90's arcade racer). I know that Nicalus is supposed to publish it but it is taking so....... long. It should have been out years ago. Clearly he has a passion for Sega inspired projects but man... he just needs to finish them. the racer was in development long before the takeover.
I'm seriously in love with the HD pixel style art these retro type games are incorporating.
Not pixel art at that point, it's just art/ like cel animated art
Oh, I was under the impression it was the same way the new Wonder Boy and Shantae game was done.
well yeah it is, but pixel art literally refers to an image so low res that you literally build it pixel by pixel, and each one has to be taken into account. something at this point is literally drawn like you would a cartoon. as was Wonderboy and Shantae. end result is still digital, but they are made very differently
Fingers crossed for this one. I still remember going to my mates house way back in the early 1990’s to play his mega drive and him excitedly showing me this new game “streets of rage”. We played it in co-op all day until we finished it. Truly great experience in its day.
I had Streets of Rage 1-3 on my Genesis. Without question SoR1 was awesome when it came out. But 2 and 3 totally blew it away. The graphics and sound were so much better. They were on a whole other level. But hey, they couldn't have gotten to 2 and 3 without 1 being great!
Looks like shit compared to the original, retard Sega board should have made the Street of Rage Remake (5) an oficial product.
Looks good. This is why I bought a switch honestly. Dead cells, mark of the ninja, steam dig, darkest dungeon. I think my next hyped was Pedro so this is another.
well sh*t that looks awesome, I would definitely buy that.
It's coming along well, looking forward to this and glad a lot of my favs are coming back.
This is what happens when fans work on their favorite franchises - THEY'RE GOOD! Sonic Mania (outside a few minor issues) is a fun game that Sega would have ruined had they put their hands in it 100%. Fans know what fans want - a complete masterpiece.
So hyped for this!
The only thing I don't like is Axel's design, he's looks too old, bulky and a bit like a hobo. Other than that, I think it looks great.
We all dont stay young and in shape forever so the same can be said about digital sprites. I think they aged him appropriately.
I would accept that reason if Blaze looked older too. She looks as young as she did in the early games. Axel looks mid 40's and Blaze looks like somebody in their 20's.
No she dont. you do know that women tend to color the gray and shes packed on a few pounds as well. Prob from having a kid or two. I'm just being funny so dont take it so seriously.
Adding 20 years to ones life tends to do that. It's not like they were kids in the orginal. They were cops.
I agree, Axel looks too chunky. Still, played SoR 2 and 3 to death back in the day so really looking forward to this one.
They totally killed the mood of the original. Original sprites were thin and tall. If your not going to do it right...don't do it at all. Too cartoony.
The original sprites for SoR1 were thin and tall. 2 and 3 looked very different, and they looked much better because of it.
Axel looks as powerful a white man as he ever did and Blaze looks dangerous as she is sexy. Might need to censor both of these characters for the sake of people who won't buy and play this game.
I'm so excited for this!!! I can't believe both toe jam and Earl plus streets of rage are coming back! I'm hoping there are hey couple more playable characters that they haven't revealed yet.
I have the entire trilogy running on my X right now. This is a day one no doubt.
God is good !!
The art looks soooo amazing!!! I just hope the animation is smooth as well.
GRAND UPPER GRAND UPPER !!
Why does Axel look so puny next to blaze on that cover art? More feminist crap. And why does Axel's fire uppercut have a twin twirl of flames coming off of it as there are two odjects spinning upwards... It's one fist, looks dumb, otherwise the art looks great.
I cannot wait. About time Sega.
Looks like a smartphone game.
Will there be a 3rd playable character? The original had 3 playable characters and 2 and 3 had 4 playable characters. I expect at least 1 more character.
No Adam Hunter?
