Dotemu and revealed new information about the co-developed Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games’ upcoming brawler Streets of Rage 4.
Evidently, the game will include a powerhouse of Japanese composers who have worked on previous entries in the Streets of Rage series as well as other iconic titles. The publisher released a new video today announcing that Yūzō Koshiro and Streets of Rage composer Motohiro Kawashima will come together for this entry of the series. The video highlights how they approached the game’s score what it was like for them to work on this series again.
However, that’s not all, Streets of Rage 4 will also include other names from the industry, including:
- Yoko Shimomura (Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Kingdom Hearts I, II & III, Super Mario RPG, Legend of Mana, Parasite Eve,…)
- Hideki Naganuma (Jet Set Radio & Future, Super Monkey Ball, Sega Rally 2,…)
- Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden, Tecmo Bowl, Captain Tsubasa,…)
The initiative to bring these composers together is known as Brave Wave Productions, which is a label that works with Japanese game musicians to bring their music to global audiences.
“Among these names stand some of the most legendary and memorable musical architects in video game history,” said Cyrille Imbert, executive producer of Streets of Rage 4. “Since we first announced the title last fall, fans have been asking who will be involved in the game’s soundtrack as it is a vital element to the Streets of Rage games. We are thrilled to confirm this world-class lineup of musical talent for Streets of Rage 4.”
Streets of Rage 4 continues the Sega action brawler series as players choose between playable characters Axel and Blaze as they walk the streets and kick ass. The character models and visuals were headed by the team who put out 2017’s Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap remake as they bring their unique retro style shading to a new series.
Streets of Rage 4 currently has not been announced for any platforms and doesn’t have a release date.
