Fight to the Finish in 3D Streets of Rage 2— Now Available for Nintendo 3DS
LOS ANGELES — July 23, 2015 — The Syndicate, led by the nefarious Mr. X has returned, and can only be stopped by the likes of Max Hunter, Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding, and Eddie “Skate” Hunter in 3D Streets of Rage 2  for the Nintendo 3DS™ system. 3D Streets of Rage 2, a remastering of the renowned side-scrolling beat ’em up, is the latest title to join the growing library of SEGA 3D Classics and is now available to download for the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS for $5.99.

3D Streets of Rage 2 has been completely rebuilt to take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS system’s stereoscopic 3D, but remains lovingly faithful to the original game — initially released on the SEGA Mega Drive / Genesis in 1992. From the stunning graphics to the musical score by renowned video game composer Yuzo Koshiro, everything has been accurately remade for the Nintendo 3DS.

While painstaking detail was used to recreate the game keeping in line with the previous entries in the SEGA 3D Classics series, 3D Streets of Rage 2 received a few new creature comforts to take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS. In addition to the new stereoscopic 3D environments, there’s a new Casual Mode, which kills enemies as soon as they hit the ground. Beat the game to unlock “Fists of Death Mode,” which is a one-hit-one-kill mode to keep players in the grips of white-knuckle tension. And since no beat ’em up is complete without co-op multiplayer, the Nintendo 3DS version supports local co-op. There are also different emulation settings available, including the Japanese version, various display modes, and more.

3D Streets of Rage 2 is rated E10+ by the ESRB and is available exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS as a digital download. For more information about this game and the rest of the SEGA 3D Classics library, please visit http://www.sega.com.

    The Sega 3D Classics and Game Gear Virtual Console are about all I play on 3ds anymore. I look forward to this one, one of my favorite genesis games. I wish they’d put out 3D Phantasy Star II or IV…

      Its a shame Nintendo has abandoned the Virtual Console on the 3DS. We could have seen a lot more Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles if they put the effort. Sega is thankfully porting their games over to the 3DS for us.
