Cancelled Streets Of Rage Video Leaked

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.

  1. 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 :)

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

  3. My first thought was “Ooh, I’ve got some jeans like his!”

  4. Shame that projects like this are shelved :(

    and then CoD makes a billion o.0

  5. a game with no AI at all, wow.

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

  6. Naw, that’s a shame. It does look lovely.

  7. 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.
