The passion project that is Streets of Rage Remake has a new version. V 5.2 is ready for download. With a slew of improvements and overall design changes.

One of the most noticeable changes is the new intro screen (picture below). You can read the full list from here.

Spiritual Successor

Despite of an “official” Streets of Rage sequel coming out last year. I still pretty much like this version over it and deem it the spiritual successor of the Sega Mega Drive franchise. As this version kept the look and feel of the old 16 BIT era and added a lot more to it.

It’s worth mentioning that this project has NOTHING to do with Sega. If Sega had their way, we wouldn’t got this masterpiece of a game!

Character selection screen

I gave this game a spin earlier today and I could sense a lot of changes in terms of game play and performance. It’s a smooth experience and a joy to pickup and play.
