The independent game developers at Bombergames have released their re-imagining of the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive classic, Streets of Rage.

Streets of Rage Remake for Windows was built from the ground up to pay homage to the original series. There are dozens of reasons why any fan of old-school style beat 'em ups should stop reading this immediately and go download the game before Sega calls out the legal hounds. We're talking redrawn sprites; remixes of the original '90s cornball soundtrack; eight playable characters (with two secret unlockables); customizable sprites; and more. You'll even notice multiple unlockables, including a two-player volleyball mode.

I would have alerted everyone to this sooner, but I just spent and hour and forty-five minutes of my day sucker-punching punks, kangaroos, and dudes on jet packs. The team has done a tremendous job bringing this project to life and with classic gameplay like this, plus a slew of unlockables, don't be surprised if you find this on a few of the Destructoid team's upcoming Games of the Week. It sure as hell beats Urban Champion ... and it's $5 cheaper.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go eat an entire cooked turkey I found inside of this wooden crate I rabbit punched earlier; I'm feeling a bit under the weather.
