Developer Dotemu has just released a new behind the scenes video that tells the story of how Streets of Rage 4 was conceptualized by a team of extremely passionate individuals. It really gives us a great insight into the enthusiasm the team has for realizing this anticipated next entry in the franchise.
We get to meet Jordi Asensio (Streets of Rage 4 game designer), Cyrille Lagarigue and Beausoleil Samson-Guillemette (Streets of Rage programmers) and learn how their shared love of the beat-em-up genre led to Streets of Rage 4’s creation.
Reflecting on inspirations, key learnings, and how Streets of Rage 2 is the benchmark they’re holding the revival’s exhilarating brawls to, the team speaks candidly about the game’s development.
You can check the video out for yourself below.
For more developer insight, you can read an interview we conducted with Dotemu back at Pax East this year here.
