A new listing on the 3DS eShop has revealed that M2’s upcoming Genesis port 3D Streets of Rage 2 will be released in North America on July 16 for $5.99.
Streets of Rage 2 is the first of three new Genesis titles added to the latest wave of 3D Classics. The other two, Gunstar Heroes and Sonic 2, will release in August and September, respectively.
The game will come with several new features, including a Quartet mode, which is explained below:
- When you first start the game in “Quartet” mode, you have four lives and must choose your preferred order of characters (Let’s say your chosen order is Skate, Blaze, Max and Axel).
- Once Skate dies in battle, Blaze will come in to replace him, followed by Max and Axel.
- Once all the characters have fallen, you’ll lose a life, and you’ll begin again with Skate, followed by the others in the same order.
- You can gain life-ups if you have three or less lives, but four lives are the maximum you can have.
