Dotemu has released the first gameplay trailer for their upcoming sequel, Streets of Rage 4, and it looks pretty damn awesome while also very familiar.
In the clip, series mainstays Axel and Blaze dish out a delicious spread of attacks to some low-life street criminals. One thing that’s instantly apparent is that while it may look visually different, the game is certainly still the game we fell in love with back in the 90s – with some new moves, to boot.
It’s been almost two decades since the last Streets of Rage title and upon its announcement, the Internet was awash with excitement for the upcoming sequel. Speaking with Dotemu at EGX last year, n3rdabl3 also learned that they’re not trying to remake the series, but bring a familiar IP to the 21st century.
With plenty more to show – including the game’s soundtrack, Dotemu is definitely impressing so far. Check out the trailer below:
