SEGA has announced that the classic beat ’em up Streets of Rage has become the latest addition to SEGA Forever, a growing collection of iconic SEGA titles available to download for free from the App Store and Google Play.
Streets of Rage, which was developed by SEGA’s AM7 division, was first released in 1991 for the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive. It is the first installment in the Streets of Rage trilogy and introduces the series’ three main characters Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding, and Adam Hunter, all of whom are former police officers pitted against the evil mastermind ‘Mr. X.’ The game also boasts a critically acclaimed original soundtrack composed by Yuzo Koshiro.
Streets of Rage supports cross-platform local multiplayer capabilities and, like the rest of the collection, it offers added features like leaderboards, cloud saves, and controller support. The multiplayer option will also be added to previously released SEGA Forever’s Golden Axe and Altered Beast in the coming weeks.
