What classic games would you like to see get the 'Streets of Rage' treatment?

So, the original streets of rage was always close to my heart on the Megadrive and I remember the first one so vividly thanks to that slapping soundtrack.




So I downloaded Streets 4 from Gamepass and man this is fucking awesome, the art and everything




What other games would you like to see be reimagined this way? By lizardcube or someone else?





Would love to see them make Alien 3 again



or Robocop v Terminator



Golden axe?



and GOAT

Golden Axe would be cool. The others as well but with the movie licenses involved I don't see it happening unfortunately.

I want a remake of Trog. Loved that game as a kid

Tbh SOR4 and Wonder boy have similar cartoony animation style and I wouldn't want anything similar in Alien 3 or Robocop vs Terminator. Animation "deformations" would look awful in these imo.

Golden Axe, yeah, maybe but why Aladdin? It's kind of perfect visually as it is.

My 16-bit favs:

Revenge of Shinobi
Shinobi III
Contra 3
Axelay

Only problem with these games is that they are short and can be plowed through in probably 20 minutes each. Streets of Rage 2 was a good choice because it's got variety in character selection and probably double the length, so you get some extra value out of it.

Streets of Rage 4 is OST of the year. It's in the running for my GOTY. I have 150 hours on it and still play it almost every day.

It's not just Lizardcube though, since it was multiple devs working together. Wonder Boy looked good but wasn't nearly the hit SoR4 was. On SoR Lizardcube worked with Dotemu and Guard Crush Games, who have experience with beat-em-ups.

Personally, I'd like to see them make Shadow Dancer 2.

It's been out for a while and I think it's safe to say that the new streets of rage is kinda weak.

River City Girls is way better.

X-COM UFO Defense. Modern graphics, a bit of streamlining to the controls and UI, some balance to the tech tree and weapons, but otherwise just gimme the 1994 MicroProse X-COM game, ported to modern platforms.

Shinobi is the obvious choice for me. Next to that, Castlevania. Not the fucking Metroidvanias thank you, no, akin to the classics.
