From PSU: "The Streets Of Rage 4 PS4 Release was confirmed in a brand new trailer during Gamescom 2019. The game has been in development for quite some time, but no platforms were confirmed. Well, now we officially know it is coming to PS4."
So all major platforms then as shown at the end of the trailer.
Article makes it look like it's ps4 exclusive yet, it's in plain english that it's coming to all platforms..
I hope this doesn't turn out to be a "some classics should be left alone" type of release. Looking that way. Soon to be forgotten. Hate the artstyle. The soundtrack on the trailer is bad too.
Could be fun but I'm not keen on the visuals either; looks so flat as if the sprites are wafer thin pieces of paper on a flat background.
SierraGuy Lizardcube who did an amazing remake of Wonder Boy III The Dragon's Trap.
The Hunter family is pretty damn strong XD
Oh really? Seriously? His daughter? Why not just bring back Adam to unite the original trio? I just feel a musical instrument as a weapon doesn't really fit this world.
For all we know they might surprise us with him, too. Maybe a surprise easter egg. Remember Roo? He was an unlockable. MAYBE. YOU DON'T KNOW lol
i wish they went for a diffetent art style, i mean this worked for Wonder Boy but doesn't look fitting for SoR. We'll see how this translate. As for Adam, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, he MIGHT show up later on and join the party. the kind of twists i do not favor to be honest particularly in this game. After more than 2 decades it's annoying af to do it this way, it would've been great to just give us the original trio from the start and add who ever they want later. and mind you, that's a big might. Sometimes the way devs think is frustrating.
Just really hoping for a physical release
Can you please add Skate, Roo, and Max to the roster?
What was the point of this, we all know it's coming to all platforms. Hate articles that try and make it look like it's for one platform only or try to persuade others it's best only on one platform.
Nobody asked for a cherry hunter. We want the old characters.
Missing a whole lot of charm that the originals had but the stages with the neon lights sort of recapture it. Art style overall isn't doing much for me. Gameplay could be solid.
I think this is a pretty faithful effort, but I don't expect a 2019 entry to have the full charm of an early 90's game series. The art style is different for sure - little more comic book-ish, but I think that's alright. The game play looks very solid and the move sets look spot on in terms of recapturing the feel of the early games.
My only problem with the art style, and honestly for lots of games like this... Reminds me of like a really good flash game from NewGrounds or something. I'll always feel like something is off. With that said, they COULD have gone the SonicMania route which totally recaptured the look and feel of old Sonics.
All platforms and I need a game like this on a cart. I need all my retro era stuff on cart.
We'll see. As a Sega fan and SoR fan since the beginning...I've seen Openbor developers do better with graphics, character rosters, moves and remixed music. Sega better not drop the ball.
official release date? can't wait!
Have to admit I'm not digging the artsyle at all but the game does look like fun.
As someone who has the entire trilogy sitting on his X right, I look forward to SoR4 and adding it to the collection to complete the franchise on one box.
If this is digital only it will be a hard pass for me.
Well, it's looking like an SoR to me :) And nice to see that Shiva is again in the game :) I hope he's a playable character like the 3rd. I will see how the game plays before passing judgment.
Why wouldn't I play with Cherry Hunter?
