    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->LONDON and SAN FRANCISCO – 14 April, 2010 –SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced the launch of Streets of Rage™ 2 for iPhone® and iPod® touch. This classic Mega Drive™ era game is immediately available for download on the App Store and is priced at $2.99/€2.39/£1.79/AU$ 3.99. Fan favourites Golden Axe™ 2 and 3, plus Streets of Rage 3 are also coming to the App Store this spring.

    Streets of Rage 2 allows players to fight the evil crime boss Mr. X in a series of down-and-dirty, street-level battles, with a complex plot and fast gameplay. Streets of Rage 2 includes multiplayer capability via Bluetooth™ and the original Japanese version of Bare Knuckle II for more brawler action.

    For more information on SEGA's classic games for iPhone and iPod touch, check the App Store throughout this spring and summer.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    My iPod is MIA at the moment, so I haven't had a chance to play this version.
  2. Hmm... isn't it a little ironic that this comes out right after Sega takes down that fan game?

    Seeing that Sega released this on the iOS is just one of the things that are tempting me more and more towards getting a iPod Touch.

    None at the moment I'm afraid.
    It's the same as the normal SOR 2. Geez, just buy Sonic's Ultimate Genesis collection. The only new thing is the touch screen controls and other than that it's the same. (with bad sound and music emulation about the same as the regular version Gens no doubt) If they really wanted to impress people, they should have translated Streets of Rage Mobile/Bare Knuckle Mobile or made Streets of Rage 4. Not telling you not to buy this, but I highly discourage it unless you don't mind the emulation and such and/or are one of those nuts that wants SOR games on every system imaginable. (nothing wrong with that since I used to be one, until I found out that Sega can't emulate Genesis games very well without help from a third party generally.)

    And yes, I'm kind of a Genesis emulation Nazi. XD

    Finally, glad to see one of my favorite games available on the go. Sega is one step closer to having every Genesis game I want available. All I need are Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Michael Jackson's Moonwalker. Seriously.

    Seemed no-one else mentioned this already, but it appears (from playing this earlier) they went as far as nixing Blaze's upskirt jumpkick sprite even on the "Bare Knuckle II" side.

    And yet her (lesser) upskirt sprite in SOR3 (the iOS port of which unfortunately has no BKIII :argh:) is still present in all its two-pixel glory. Hmmm.

    If anyne wants me to, I'll SSH in to my iPod and package up the contents of the folder it's in so more experienced eyes can take a look at it. Same goes for 1 or 3.
