The classic video game Streets of Rage is now available for iOS and Android devices as part of the SEGA Forever collection.
The game, which was developed by SEGA’s AM7 division, was first released in 1991 for the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive. It became the first installment in the Streets of Rage trilogy and introduces the series’ three main characters Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding, and Adam Hunter. The trio are former police officers pitted against the evil mastermind ‘Mr. X.’ The game also boasts an original soundtrack composed by Yuzo Koshiro.
Streets of Rage on iOS and Android supports cross-platform local multiplayer capabilities and, like the rest of the collection, offers added features like leaderboards, cloud saves, and controller support. The multiplayer option will also be added to previously released SEGA Forever’s Golden Axe and Altered Beast in the coming weeks.
Like all other games in the SEGA Forever collection, Streets of Rage is available to download for free from the App Store for iPhone and iPad or Google Play Store for Android devices. Players who want to experience the games without ads can remove them for a one-time in-app purchase.
