Streets of Rage 4 Reveals New Screenshots

Developer Lizardcube releases new screenshots of Streets of Rage 4, showcasing Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding.

The last game of side-scrolling beat 'em up series Streets of Rage came out more than two decades ago and no one has thought that the franchise would return anytime soon until it did with a bang in August 27, 2018 when Streets of Rage 4 was announced.

Although not much of the game is revealed yet, we see the 90's vibe is very much alive in the newest installment. Recently, developer Lizardcube has released a fresh batch of screenshots from the game for fans to look at before they come up with more.

Right after the announcement for SoR4 was made through the official reveal trailer; long-time fans of the game just lost their minds and started posting some amazing line of fan-arts of protagonists Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding everywhere.

The newly revealed images depict how the studio reinvented the retro feel with hand-painted art for a better visual that would appeal to both the arcade goers of old days and modern day console lovers. They also hint at a hell of a lot of action to enjoy.

Original developer/publisher of the series, Sega handed development of the third sequel to Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games, which DotEmu will publish. Even though beat 'em up is not as popular as once they were, the nostalgia could be a very powerful selling factor for the game.

Streets of Rage 4 is expected to release sometime on 2019 that is still unspecified and for yet to be revealed platforms but we believe the game will probably launch simultaneously on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
