Publisher DotEmu has confirmed that Streets of Rage 4 – a brand new game in the classic brawler franchise – is in development.

Following on from their wonderful work on Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, developer Lizardcube has partnered with Guard Crush Games – best known for the Xbox 360’s Streets of Fury, and its sequel – to create a new game in the classic Streets of Rage series.

The franchise spawned three games on Sega consoles, with the last coming to the Sega Genesis in 1994. Streets of Rage 4 is an all-new game, and builds on the originals with a new story, and new combat mechanics. The game will support solo and multiplayer play.

Here’s the reveal trailer.

Although the Streets of Rage 4 features some glorious hand-drawn visuals, it’s fair to say that it doesn’t deviate too far in tone or style from the original. Expect to see plenty of white t-shirts, denim, and red leather hot pants.

If the game can live up to Lizardcube’s masterful remake of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, this is something to look forward to.

At the time of writing, no release date or platform has been confirmed, but we’d expect to see it on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and PC before the end of the year.
