SEGA's motivations for closing down the lovingly-crafted Streets Of Rage fan remake may have suddenly become clear. As of today, Streets Of Rage 2 is now available on the App Store for £1.79; boasting "down-and-dirty, street-level battles, with a complex plot and fast gameplay." The iOS version also includes Bluetooth multiplayer functionality and the full original Japanese version of Bare Knuckle 2.
Other SEGA classics including Golden Axe 2 and Streets Of Rage 3 are also slated for release on iOS platforms this Spring.
Still sucks about the fan remake, though. Whether or not the diehard faithful will choose to boycott this release remains to be seen - but our mobile sister site, Mobot, will likely have a review before too long.
