It’s been an odd year for gaming. While not as rich in titles as 2011 was, it’s still been a pretty decent year, but one which saw far less effort put into remaking classic games. One such game that was on the reboot cards though? Bare Knuckle Streets of Rage, which was in development by Ruffian Games, before it was dropped harder than a kangaroo in shorts and boxing gloves.

Footage of the cancelled game recently got leaked, and the authenticity of if what confirmed by Ruffian developer Sean Noonan over Twitter, through Spong:

 

Here’s a look at the footage of the game, which admittedly, doesn’t look too bad, even though it swaps 2D for 3D.

Now, I absolutely adore the Streets of Rage franchise. I still own the original trilogy for my dusty old Megadrive, and playing them every once in a while while shouting out Axel’s special attack phrase “GRABSOMEBLAAAAAAAH!”. Plus what other game would let you fight Freddie Mercury when he was jacked up on steroids and Human growth hormone?

At least, I think that’s what he says. What do you think? Is this a remake that you would have paid for, or Streets of Rage better off as a good memory instead?
