Streets of Rage 4 Gets Action-Packed New Screenshots

Published

 on

Publishers Sega and Dotemu have released a series of new screenshots of the upcoming Streets of Rage 4, providing a brief glimpse at the flashy action set to return in the long-awaited sequel.

The new screens show returning protagonists, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding, in action, both solo and in co-operative mode. The use of special attacks is in evidence, as is a shielded enemy type, which will surely require players to think about the strategies they employ in combat.

An array of locales is also present, from a run-down back street to a Chinatown district and a fancy office overlooking the city. The artwork across all of these environments suggests a gritty aesthetic in keeping with the heritage of the series.

Streets of Rage 4 was unveiled in August last year and is set to release at some point in 2019, making it the first new entry in the franchise in 25 years. The game is being developed by Lizardcube, the team behind Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, in collaboration with Guard Crush Games, which created the well-received Streets of Fury.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
