Remember Final Fight and Streets of Rage? Raging Justice taps into the nostalgia for old-school 2D scrolling beat 'em-ups - and it's coming out later this year for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Raging Justice has two playable characters: 41-year-old ex-cop Rick Justice and 31-year-old ex-military Nikki Rage (you see what they did there). As you'd expect of a 2D scrolling beat 'em-up, you move across the screen while smashing loads of street thugs to bits. There's co-op, weapons and even vehicles, such as lawnmowers and tractors. The hook, though, is the arrest warrants system. You can either kick the crap out of your enemies or arrest them. The former gets you more points, the latter more health. Decisions!
The game's in the works at MakinGames, a studio made up of ex-Rare developers and based in the East Midlands, and published by Team17. Bertie had a play of Raging Justice at EGX Rezzed last year and had a thoroughly good time..
