A demo reel for a remake of Streets of Rage leaked online today. The game was apparently in development at Ruffian Games, the makers of Crackdown 2. A former Ruffian staffer has confirmed the authenticity of the footage via Twitter.
Why the game was cancelled is anyone’s guess. It could be due to Sega’s financial woes as of late. Either way, you can ogle over the below footage and daydream about what could have been. The gameplay itself doesn’t look too revolutionary, but the visuals look mighty pretty indeed.
