Glad to see SEGA using more than just one franchise.

Glad to see SEGA using more than just one franchise.

Now all we need to see is Comix Zone, Vectorman, Golden Axe, and Ristar. I found out about the news yesterday, and I am hyped. The 2d/3d brawler genre is back.

...you'd think that in 20+ years Blaze and Alex would learn that firearms would make their lives easier. 0_0

Anyway, I'm actually glad this exists. Streets of Rage was never my favourite Sega IP, but I played and enjoyed SoR 3 on the Mega Drive, so, hey, it's nice to see them back, and that the characters have aged.

CoCage:
The 2d/3d brawler genre is back.

Um, is it?

I'm not dissing the genre (even if it isn't really my thing), but I don't recall any massive resurgence. I recall Double Dragon IV getting an installment in 2017 (that was panned) and...that's it.

3D, sure (Devil May Cry for instance), but 2D? Not so much.

Hawki:

Or tasers and pepper spray.

To be fair, there was a pepper shaker in the first game. All the characters use guns in the fan game Streets of Rage Remake. So there's that.

3D, sure (Devil May Cry for instance), but 2D? Not so much.

Mother Russia Bleeds, Way of the Passive Fist, Dust, Fight n Rage, The TakeOver, Raging Justice, River City Ransom Underground , Double Dragon 4 (That one is love-it-or-hate-it territory. I thought it was okay.) and Neon, Guacamelee 2 , I Am The Hero, Code of Princess (switch port), and Odin sphere and Dragon's Crown Pro (PS4 ports). Sure most of these aren't big AAA titles, but they don't need to be. These games and developers know who their audiences are. I recommend most of these games.

The genre is doing very well for itself, it's just not in the form of triple A titles.

Shame Adam's been left out of this.

Hopefully they'll announce him. It's just not the same without the original trio.

Adam was a beast. If they hack up this game too much for sake of DLC I'll be pissed. But they can't ship the game with just Axel and Blaze, that would be plain stupid, any beat em up worth it's salt, even in the 90s came with at least 3 characters (Double Dragon and Crude Busters aside, j/k)

I'd love for Adam to come back, I can see though why he didn't make it to the sequels. Trying to diversify the characters, Adam wasn't beefy or slow enough, so they brought in Max, and Blaze was too close to Axel to be a speedy character, so they brought in Skate.

Max was awesome once you figured out how to move with him, Skate was just crap. Felt like you'd do more damage blowing kisses. Zan though, just freaking weird to play as. Certainly strong enough, but just not satisfying.

I see a lot of criticism primed already on the youtube video, people are going to be upset if the soundtrack doesn't live up. But that was a precedent that SoR1 really set. SoR3 didn't even come close, if I'm honest. It would be brilliant if Yuzo could come back to give the game it's original flavor, at least setting the mood, if the graphics don't quite manage.

But I'm not going to expect the moon, nostalgia glasses aside, this will be great fun either way. And there's enough wicked sick 80's synthwave artists nowadays that I'm sure there will be something suitable out there.

I highly doubt they'll make Adam, or the others DLC, but my mood will be no different from yours should that disaster happen.

There plenty of beat'em ups with only two characters in the 90s: Rushing Beat 1 (Rival Turf), Battletoads and Battlemaniacs, almost any SNK beat'em up, Riot City/Zone, The Punisher, 64th Street, and Die Hard Arcade. I know you're joking, I wanted to have fun and list them off.

Skate was only a problem if you did Very Hard or Mania by yourself. You have a point, but it usually didn't bother me.

My brother and I co-op the games a lot. I usually mained Adam, Max, and Axel in that order though out the series. He would usually go for Axel in 1, and Skate for the rest of the series or Zan in 3.

Ignore the the ungrateful haters. I'm glad to see another game that is trying something different. If they pulled a Sonic Mania, most of those same people would complain and say, "Ya might as well have SORRemake on digital services"; or trying to make lightning strike twice. Complaining before the game even comes out. I think Yuzo going to do the soundtrack, if not, I can take it. 3's soundtrack is iconic in its own right, and pulled off music you wouldn't see in most Genesis game. Not to mention, Yuzo laid out the precursor to dubstep over 20 years before it became a thing. 3 was defintely ahead of its time in the sound department. Take that how you will. The soundtrack for 1 is the best in my opinion while 2 is very close.

Good. We can always use more brawlers.

By the way an animator known as Balak worked on the animated intro and if you want something like Streets of Rage the animated series check out Lastman

All this talk about which fighters are returning and not one mention of Roo?

FOR SHAME!

I'm beginning to wonder if that might be a thing, considering within the last few years, Sega not only greenlighted Sonic Mania, but we're getting Shenmue III, and now Streets of Rage IV. So if they want to revive more IPs...yay?

Though if I'm being all nostalgic for Sega IPs I haven't played since the Genesis, I'll add Ecco the Dolphin, Bonanza Bros, and maybe Alex Kidd (though that's a big "maybe").

2D has had some great stuff too, especially Dragon's Crown. That game was absolutely stunning to look at and was actually pretty damn complex for a genre typically simplistic.

Happy to see another fan. I gonna play some DC later today. I haven't been playing enough recently.

I disagree with his opinion about Skate. It wouldn't be the same without him either. Roller blades or not.

They're usually more interesting than western fantasies made by westerners.

Eh for every Dark Souls and Berserk you get like 6 garbage Isekai/harem shows.

2D SSB's are the genre closest to my pea pickin little heart, and as much I am hyped for seeing this get another shot at the spotlight, the dev's have a heck of a task before them to make something that exceeds the SoR remake communities contributions. The Bombers created the ultimate love letter to the franchise and the whole genre with what they've done.

Don't let us down, guys.

Oh, and leave Skate out if you must, but don't you DARE skip Max Thunder. Or a playable Shiva.

Also, Dragon's Crown, fuckyea. Elf main represent!

While not a sequel to Dragon's Crown, the studio is making a new game that uses that same gorgeous style. It seems to be a post-apocalyptic mech piloting game.

Here are some screens and a gif.

Oh man, its being done by Lizard Cube, they did the remake of Wonder Boy: the Dragons Trap. It was really good. I am totally down with seeing how they handle this.

If fire came out of my fists when I punched I doubt I'd be too fussed about weaponry either. Priorities and all.

Where the fuck is Adam?

Inazuma1:
Where the fuck is Adam?

I asked myself the same question last year. Hopefully, he will appear.

CoCage:

Looks good so far, it seems to play about as good as one can hope from an SoR game. Only complaint up to now is being limited to just two of the crew.

CoCage:

I asked myself the same question last year. Hopefully, he will appear.

Until Adam comes back I have no reason to give the game a chance and will stick to playing Streets of Rage Remake.

Your choice, but that's not going to stop me from getting the game over something like that. I won't abandon Streets of Rage. I hope they bring back Adam, Max or Skate.

Adam's stats in Remake fit the best for my highly aggressive playstyle. Blaze is too fragile while Axel got slower and weaker over time and has always had bad jump attacks.

Blaze is only fragile id you're playing the first game or her SOR1 version in the remake. She's durable in 2, 3, and remake.

Adam was my favorite to play with and Max too in the remake.

CoCage:

Blaze is only fragile id you're playing the first game or her SOR1 version in the remake. She's durable in 2, 3, and remake.

Her durability was only slightly buffed as far as I'm concerned because she takes Axel's spot as the generalist of the cast thanks to Skate being more finesse focused and Axel becoming the middleweight brawler. But Blaze still leans too much toward a hit and run style for my liking versus actively rushing down and slugging it out in the opponents' faces with high damage not reliant on grab setups. Adam's 3 star move was goddamn amazing for rushdown damage to soften up the tougher enemies.

Blaze can be a good rushdown character if you know how to use her correctly, but not as good as Adam or Axel. Still not bad in the grand scheme of things.
