Yuzo Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima to Tour Streets of Rage Music with Red Bull Music Academy

Friday, September 29th, 2017

If you’ve never seen it, go and watch Red Bull Music Academy’s fascinating documentary series Diggin’ in the Carts. It interviews loads of Japanese video game composers from its earliest days and right up to the PS1 era. While lots of different composers from many different publishing houses feature, Yuzo Koshiro of Streets of Rage and Revenge of Shinobi fame features in one episode and many contemporary artists heap praise on his revolutionary dance-influenced music.

Despite the fact the series is now 3 years old, Red Bull Music Academy are reviving the Diggin’ in the Carts name for a world tour featuring composers that appeared in the original series. Yuzo Koshiro and fellow Streets of Rage composer Motohiro Kawashima are due to appear at 3 live shows that will also feature many other composers from the series. The dates for these shows are listed below:

– October 22nd 2017, Regent Theater, Los Angeles, USA
– November 17th 2017, Liquidroom, Tokyo, Japan
– November 30th 2017, Fabric, London, UK

Tickets aren’t available just yet but as this information becomes available we will be sure to keep you updated.

Review: Streets of Rage for Master System

Sunday, January 29th, 2017

sorsms01 001

There’s something fascinating about seeing a much more advanced title being ported to a significantly underpowered system. In the right hands, these kind of ports can be an exciting experiment. What will the developer sacrifice in order to make the game run on such archaic hardware? More often than not, it’s the in-house studios who achieve the better results and with the Master System version of Streets of Rage that is definitely the case.

Merchandise: New Releases Added to Our SEGA Music Index and Further Updates

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

Our SEGA Music Index continues to receive more updates!

Existing entries in the index now have a much tidier look that puts the artwork front and center and any additional images are now linked via image thumbnails at the bottom. Just makes the entries a little easier to navigate.

The big update comes with 5 new entries to the index. These come in the form of the recent Data Discs vinyl releases of Streets of Rage, Shenmue, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master and Super Hang-On. Each release has its own separate entry with artwork and details about the release we thought were striking.

The final addition comes in the form of a Pulseman remix LP that was recently given to us by a good friend. This is quite a peculiar release as it was distributed in the UK despite the game never making it out of Japan.

Alien Storm is an often ignored entry in SEGA’s beat-em-up history for reasons that aren’t particularly clear. Did the humour put off the die-hard SEGA fanbase? Were SEGA fans simply not interested in anything that wasn’t Streets of Rage or Golden Axe? Who knows. Regardless, we think it’s a game you should check out and now we have a review explaining exactly why we think it’s worth your time.
