    Trailer

    From the devs who did the recent Wonderboy conversion I think.

    I really hate the way it looks.

    It reminds me of DD neon.

    I can't even quite explain how big a fan I am of Streets of rage so I did an audible squeee noise when I saw this thread title. The art style shown on the trailer makes 10 year old Richard die inside.

    Wouldve rather nicely detailed pixel art but still interested in how it turns out. Music needs to be top quality too.

    Hang on, is this real? Also if so the rawwwk soundtrack has to go, pronto or it's not streets of rage. Axel looks like he got fat and old yet blaze looks fine still.

    Really not feeling the character design, everyone's too dark and too wide. I don't think it's Lizardcube doing the game, it's seemingly by the people who made Streets of Fury EX which always struck me as a different style of game with the goofy combos and lane-based movement. No sign of Ancient being involved at this point.

    I don't think you're allowed to say that any more.

    I'd much rather they released the Streets of rage remake on consoles. Was fooking amazing.

    I don't really think theres a place for this kind of game anymore sadly, as a mega sor fan. Seems on a hiding to nothing.

    @neilka Haha! And now I can't fix it. It took me a little while to find Axel on one of those shots as the sprites blend into the background too much.

    It's no Shadowgangs.

    Aye. Get the megadrive collection on ps4 or Xbox one and relive them all. Was playing SoR 2 again the other night.

    Initially after watching the trailer I wasnt impressed and was left dissapointed by the art style. As someone else mentioned, I would of preferred high detailed pixel art.

    However I have re-watched the video a few times now. In the brief gameplay that they do show, I recognised a lot of the moveset and combos. I am now hopeful that this will keep quite faithful to the previous games in the series, especially when you take into account Lizard Cubes track record with the Dragons Trap.

    If they can nail the electric/dance tracks like in SOR2, then this could turn out to be very good.

    I am keeping my expectations in check though. I was also excited when they announced my 2nd favourite side scrolling beat-em-up (Turtles in Time) was getting remade...and look how that turned out.

    ps. Blaze still shows off her nickers during a flying kick, so quite faithful.

    I actually really like the art style, but I seem to be alone on that.

    If it gets a switch release I'm in.

    They should do for Streets Of Rage what Sonic Mania did for Sonic. That could be great!
