Streets of Rage 2

Last week the North American 3DS eShop revealed 3D Streets of Rage 2 would arrive on 16th July for $5.99.

A week later, and SEGA has informed fans via Twitter that there has been a slight delay, with the second entry in the Streets of Rage series now scheduled to release globally on 23rd July.

This global release date makes up for the fact regions outside of the US previously had no idea outside of the month of July when M2's recreation of the 1992 side-scrolling fighter was arriving in their respect territories.

Fingers crossed the date sticks this time and we are brawling on the streets before the end of July.

Tell us in the comments if you are excited to get your hands on this classic hit with a 3D twist.
