Wouldn't it be great to get a new Streets Of Rage game for Switch? As that's unlikely to ever happen, Streets Of Red: Devil's Dare Deluxe might be the next best thing. It's got the classic Streets of Rage intro nailed anyway!
Alas the gameplay looks much different from SOR. Singapore based developer Secret Base has instead come up with a permadeath multiplayer horror beat-'em-up that bestows players with the skills of retro gaming heroes in a fight against a legion of undead monstrosities.
SOR:DDD was designed to be played over and over again, with each run offering up the potential for new content. Six unique playable characters and an ever-growing level selection work to keep the gameplay from getting old and rotten, while the easy to learn but hard to master combat system allows for plenty of depth.
With every kill, you earn cash that can be spent on upgrades, or to revive yourself when you die. You better learn how to make cash fast and spend it smart in SOR:DDD because when you're dead, your save data dies with you. The chills, thrills, bills, and opportunity to learn new skills here won't stop until every street runs red with blood.
Streets Of Red: Devil's Dare Deluxe lands on the Switch eShop on 27th February. Will you be checking it out?
Interesting idea but the gameplay doesn't look great to me.
Streets of Rage was one of my first Mega Drive games, but that snippet in the intro instantly reminds me of Final Fight.
Maybe my memories are distorted?
What the hell is this? Streets of Rage in Lorule?
Gotcha, the memories are starting to come back.
I can't believe I have to ask this about beat'em ups these days but is it multiplayer?
This looks nothing like Streets of Rage.
Looks like Scott Pilgram Vs the World
Looks like an interesting arcade beat-em-up and I really like the art style but the whole perma-death thing usually gets pretty frustrating in my experience.
haha, every character looks like the devs tried to toe the line of copyright infringement as close as possible. Arthur mixed with shovel knight, a Link wannabe, and a megaman/dr. stockman/rick hybrid.
And that is just pointing out a few of them! XD
This game looks promising.
I'll stick to Streets of Rage for now, actually can we just get those 3 games on Switch and maybe have Sega finally make a new one? Until then The Takeover is looking promising to fill this role
Very awesome, hopefully Sega doesn't sue them for the name similarity but the fact that it's has blood and gore madness will earn them some dollars from me. Even better they can call the Japanese version, Blood Knuckle.
Dang it, got my hopes up this would be a Streets of Rage homage. I was just listening to some of the series' incredible music the other day and getting nostalgic.
Is that Rick Taylor from Splatterhouse up there! if so, sign me up! If not, sign me up anyway, looks cool!
Was this title supposed to be released on February 27th on the Switch? I looked last night on the eShop (North America) and it was not there.
