Cancelled Streets Of Rage Video Leaked

Prototype stage, but looking lovely.

It looks like Ruffian Games, the developers behind Crackdown, were working on a Streets of Rage remake for current generation machines, to be published by SEGA. Obviously that didn’t happen, and the project was quietly shelved.

However, a video leaked online shows a decidedly pretty engine running a very much ‘now’ brawler, albeit one clearly at prototype stage.

“So it seems like one of my previous projects has leaked, as pretty as I remember,” said Sean Noonan, who used to work at Ruffian but now works for Ubisoft and is currently involved with Watch Dogs.

    Looks more like a Fighting Force than a Streets of Rage.

      Final Fight went that way on PS2 as well with Streetwise – For what it’s worth i remember that actually being reasonably decent too.

        Didn’t even know about that, never played any of these types of games since Mega Drive/Arcades.
        I did play the Double Dragon reboot, was free on PS+. Quite liked it :)

    Looks raggo. Wonder if they’d got Yuzo Koshiro on soundtrack duty?

      It was still in early development and AI would probably follow.

    To be honest, there’s no need for a 3d SOR. What we need is another 2d SOR.

    Games like SOR, Golden Axe and Final Fight were amazing fun, I still play all of them today and would kill for a new one.

    The PSN/XBLA are the perfect platform for this sort of thing, there’s nothing else like it on the market.
