Streets of Rage Remake V5.0 Released

By on April 6, 2011

And it’s finally here. The long awaited remake of Streets Of Rage is finally released. This remake was under development for 8 years. Yes, you read it right. 8 whole years. Streets of Rage Remake is a project created from scratch, it does not use reverse engineering nor a single line of code from the original games. It’s all based on visual interpretation, comparing how things work in the original games and trying to mimic it for Streets of Rage Remake. And here is the best thing. The remake supports the amazing HQ2X filtering that smooths 2D images. Seriously, this is as good as it gets. Key features and download link after the jump!
