Mmm... trashcan chicken
For a lot of us more ‘seasoned’ gamers, the announcement of Streets of Rage 4 brought a tear to the eye.

Rejoice, retro fans!
We've been aware of the 3D range of retro remakes from SEGA for a good while, splashing the cash on our Japanese unit while waiting for their eventual localisation. Of course, that's not an option for everyone, so the pleasing news is that SEGA has now confirmed release details for both Europe and North America, with a total of...
Europe and North America still awaits retro 3D series on the eShop

Perfect for newbies, too
3D Streets of Rage has just hit the Japanese 3DS eShop — where it's known by the Japanese title of 3D Bare Knuckle — and it features a mode where your character can kill enemies with a single punch. While this makes the game incredibly easy, it doesn't remove any of the enjoyment — in fact, it's surprisingly addictive...
Bare Knuckle becomes Fist of the North Star?
Sega's 3D Classics range — which has so far only seen the light of day in Japan but is due to hit the west soon — is a selection of the company's past titles adapted for the 3DS console's auto-stereoscopic display. In the games released so far, Sega has made other enhancements — such as extra game...
North America too!
