Developer isage has released a port of Streets of Rage Remake (SORR) for the PS Vita
What is Streets of Rage Remake
In the words of a fan:
You’ll go throughout an immense town fighting against people who try to attack you. There are more than 60 different enemies, you can choose among 16 characters, choose your favourite one and kick *** out there.
It’s even better than the original one. More characters, more levels, more actions, more finals,… Amazing.
This port has gone through its share of controversy, with Sega shutting the project down back in 2011. But it seems to still be actively maintained to this day, with the latest release dated from December 2020.
