Streets

Sega is continuing to support its Sega Forever mobile line-up in the best way possible, adding a quintessential Sega Genesis favorite that a lot of fans won’t want to miss.

The publisher has announced that it’s adding the iconic beat-em-up game Streets of Rage to its free mobile line-up, and it should be available a little later today. The game is free-to-download, though players that don’t want to be hit with ads can pay $1.99 through an in-app purchase to remove them.

“Streets of Rage, which was developed by Sega’s AM7 division, was first released in 1991 for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive,” the company noted in its press release. “It is the first installment in the Streets of Rage trilogy and introduces the series’ three main characters – Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding and Adam Hunter – all of whom are former police officers pitted against the evil mastermind Mr. X. The game also boasts a critically acclaimed original soundtrack composed by Yuzo Koshiro.”

The game offers cross-platform local multiplayer capabilities, along with online features, including leaderboards, cloud saves and controller support.
