New Streets of Rage 4 Behind-the-Scenes Video Details Design Vision Guiding Series’ Comeback

Brawlers keen to crack ruffian skulls should study up on today’s new behind-the-scenes look at Streets of Rage 4, as the iconic series’ striking revival from publisher and co-developer Dotemu (publisher of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, Windjammers 1, developer of Windjammers 2) as well as co-developers Guard Crush Games (developer of Streets of Fury) and Lizardcube (developer of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap) will debut some killer moves when it reaches PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.

In the video, developers from Dotemu and Guard Crush Games discuss how their shared passion for beat-em-ups led to Streets of Rage 4’s creation. Reflecting on inspirations (Street Fighter III: Third Strike, Virtua FighterGuardian HeroesSengoku 3,…) key learnings, and how Streets of Rage 2 is the benchmark they’re holding the revival’s exhilarating brawls to, the team is more candid about the game’s development than ever before. The clip can be viewed in full here:

Streets of Rage 4 will stand as the classic beat-em-up franchise’s first core entry in more than 25 years, introducing new playable fighters, devastating combat options, and a gorgeous hand-drawn art style encapsulating the gritty atmosphere and soul of the original trilogy. Seasoned brawlers will enjoy a homecoming of sorts sparring beside original stars Axel and Blaze among other nods to the legacy of the genre-defining series.

Streets of Rage 4’s all-star roster of contributing composers will bring the thumping beats and infectious melodies the games are known for, with original music provided by series composers Yūzō Koshiro (Streets of Rage 12, & 3Sonic the Hedgehog) and Motohiro Kawashima (Streets of Rage 2 & 3Shinobi II). Their effort will be joined by tracks from Yoko Shimomura (Street Fighter II: The World WarriorKingdom Hearts III & III), Hideki Naganuma (Jet Set Radio & FutureSuper Monkey Ball), and Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja GaidenTecmo Bowl).
