    Streets of Rage is back, with a brand new game, and a new playable character as well. Developers Dotemu and Lizardcube got to demo their revival of SEGA's beloved beat 'em up series during Gamescom 2019, revealing Cherry Hunter as one of the game's new characters, along with some gameplay and music. The graphics are completely hand-drawn, while the music has been created by the original composers from the classic series. Streets of Rage 4 was also announced to be coming to the Switch, in addition to the previously announced platforms of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. There is currently no release date, though the project was revealed just about a year ago, back in August 2018.

    Think ther should be better voice audio sounds when connecting combos does seem lacking

    Can anyone confirm if indeed Yuzo Koshiro is reprising his involvement with this game? It just wouldn't be streets of rage without his soundtrack to it, in my opinion.

    The bump sound when they fall on the ground is too loud. And the music.. not my taste so far.

    We will see what we get here though.

    Just a heads up: a lot of the stuff you see(and hear) in this demo, such as music, sound effects, and enemy animations, are a WORK-IN-PROGRESS, and are subjected to change through development.

    Even so, so far it looks so BADASS!

    Going to shamelessly confess, i've never played a Street Of Rage game before ever, and am not acquainted with the series at all, so perhaps this is my chance to give it a try.
    Seems promising and something akin to my favorite NES classic fighting game Mighty Final Fight.
    I hope it'll be easy to control and have an easy mode in general.

    Thats great news. I feel like games like these are better played on handheld and on the go.

    That's the worst feeling anyone can have.
    Games like these are meant to be played with a friend sitting next to you.

    Stop kissing the switch ass so much
