I'm pretty unsure if to be happy or not looking at the trailer, but at least something seems actually moving after years...

Not too keen on the black line cell shaded stuff at such small scales. I don't mind it in the cut scenes which are mostly close-ups where the black edges aren't too obvious, but the sprites in SoR never had black lines so I'll be sticking to SoRR myself.

I want to give the benefice of the doubt... there are points that I don't like very much from the trailer, first of all the cartoonish art, and second, seems to me there are only 2 playable characters...

All of the previous games had people somehow proportioned, excluding maybe some bosses.

The 3rd game made you play with many characters, 4 at the start and more using story events and cheats.

But the most important things for me, the ones that made the game a stand-alone genre and not a Final Fight clone, were the soundtrack and the combat system, with different kind of grabbing moves plus the possibility to interact with your companion.

The music in the trailer somehow gives me the right atmosphere, but the combat sequences are too small to find clues about playability... but what I see are exactly the same moves of the third game, so I suppose that the worst situation would be a graphic redesign of that game...

From the main site:
Features
  • The comeback of the legendary Streets of Rage series.
  • Beautiful graphics fully hand-drawn animated by the studio behind Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap.
  • Classic gameplay enhanced with brand new mechanics.
  • Braised chicken served on a pristine plate.

They are still working on the game, and there is a new character, the daughter of Adam Hunter.

I like this trailer :happy:

[doublepost=1567640306,1567619593][/doublepost]So, a thing that could make a lot of people happy !!
The original soundtrack composer is CONFIRMED !! And will work with other famous talents as well.

The team should be Yuzo Koshiro, Yoko Shimomura, Hideki Naganuma and Keiji Yamagishi.

My pessimism on this game has slightly decreased...
