Data Discs Release Digital Remasters of Streets of Rage Series Soundtracks, £6 Each On Bandcamp

Monday, March 9th, 2020

If you’ve ever wanted to indulge in Data Discs’ sublime work, but lack the vinyl player to do so, good news; they’ve digitally remastered the Streets of Rage trilogy’s soundtracks, and you can now  download them from Bandcamp! Of note, these are masters made specifically for digital playback, as opposed to the analogue format of the vinyl releases.

From Data Discs themselves:

Continuing our partnership with legendary composer Yuzo Koshiro, and just in time to coincide with our label’s fifth anniversary, it’s with great pleasure that we can finally announce our digital remasters of the iconic STREETS OF RAGE trilogy.

Over the past year we’ve been back in the studio, revisiting our previous work and remastering the trilogy for digital distribution. As with our vinyl releases, all three albums were sourced using a combination of the original NEC-PC88 files (captured and supplied by Koshiro-san himself) and a range of Japanese Mega Drive consoles. We are honoured to be distributing these classic albums on digital platforms, so they can reach an ever wider audience and maintain their rightful place as some of the most important and influential game scores ever made.

All three albums are available to purchase today from our new BANDCAMP store, priced at 6.00 GBP each (in a range of lossy and lossless formats). They will also be available on other digital platforms at a later date.

That last bit gives us a little bit of hope that we might see these legendary soundtracks join streaming services at some point – time will tell!

Tuesday, February 25th, 2020

A new Streets of Rage 4 trailer is upon us, and with it brings news of a brand new, 5th playable character in the form of Floyd Iraia. Floyd is a big, heavy-hitting character in the style of Max from Streets of Rage 2, but with the wacky, mechanised arms of Dr. Zan from Streets of Rage 3. Check him out in action by watching the latest trailer below:

Alongside the news of Floyd’s addition to the character roster, Streets of Rage 4 will support 2 player online co-op and for the first time in the franchise, 4 player co-op action will be supported in local multiplayer. Streets of Rage 4 is due to release at some point in 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Limited Run Games Handling Boxed Release of Streets of Rage 4

Wednesday, January 15th, 2020

A boxed release of Streets of Rage 4 is on the way, but publishing duties have been given to the people at Limited Run Games. As you can expect from the company’s name, Limited Run Games specialise in producing limited physical runs of games for collectors. They often produce a standard and a special edition of each of their releases, but there is currently no word on whether Streets of Rage 4 will get similar treatment.

Streets of Rage 4 is in development at Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games, with Dotemu publishing the digital release under license from SEGA. The game is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch at some point in 2020. There is currently no word on when pre-orders will go live at Limited Run Games, so it’s worth keeping an eye on their website for updates.
