Some Japanese studios regained their mojo. See also: Capcom.

Capcom have always been there or there abouts, but SEGA have been co king things up for themselves for over a decade, don't get me wrong, I'm pleased at all of this, buts it's fucking weird!

The art style reminds me of Wonderboy: Dragon’s Trap, and yup it’s the same team.

 

Great stuff, although obv Streets of Rage was a low-rent Final Fight. 

 

them be fightin' words. (appropriately enough)

I would sort of agree that SoR1 is 'just' a solid Final Fight clone with a moody art style and amazing music. SoR2, however, is the best pure scrolling beat-em-up ever made. 

 

4 has a lot to live up to, even discounting the impossibly high standard of the series' music. I worry for it. Still, I'm definitely intrigued!

Man, I love the look and I trust Lizardcube with the game after the great job they did with Dragons Trap.

 

But the music has to be on point otherwise it's all for nothing.

 

EDIT: Guard Crush (the other developer) made the very poor Streets of Fury on XBLIG:

 

Excitement lessened.

I would have taken this for a SoR2 remake had it not said 4 at the end.

From what I can see Axel and Blaze’s movesets are the same as 2 and all the enemies are from 2 too.

It’s not a complaint, just a bit of a surprise.

1st reaction: OMG WTF BBQ SOR OMG OMG

 

2nd reaction: oh those sprites look like very flash game :(

 

I hope it's good. Anyone with an ounce of sense would have picked up the unofficial (and fucking brilliant) SoR Remake and put that out years ago. 

 

Edit: @grindmouse confirmed for having a weird (some may say: utterly wrong) taste in games :lol:

Would have prefered pixel art though.

 

Would prefer chip music in the trailer :D

 

I actually don't mind the art style - although pixels would be interesting. And it's never going to happen, but online multiplayer would be a great addition.
