Classic Beat ’em Up “Streets of Rage” Joins Sega Forever

Sega’s ever-growing collection of classic titles just keeps growing. Two weeks after adding Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to the Sega Forever collection, Sega has added one of the essential side-scrolling beat ’em up experiences, Streets of Rage. Players pick one of three characters and then go on to try and clean up the streets by whatever means necessary. That means beating up bad guys with fists, pipes, broken bottles, and whatever else you can get your hands on. Streets of Rage was originally released on the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive in 1991 and would go on to become a classic game that would be ported to numerous other systems via ports and as part of collections.

As with other Sega Forever titles, Streets of Rage is free with ads. Ads can be removed for via an in app purchase for $1.99. It is playable offline though with some limitations, and it offers controller support.
