It also seems to be a project with a certain weight, given the names involved: the production entrusted to Lionsgate proposes a film of certain importance, but particularly remarkable is the fact that the script is a work of Derek Kolstadwhich is one of the central elements behind the John Wick series.

So we await more information in this regard, as we still have no idea how this project will be structured. Streets of Rage has recently returned to the scene with the excellent Streets of Rage 4 by DotEmu, which manages to offer very good gameplay in relation to a genre that is now largely outdated, although still far from the atmosphere of the original trilogy.
