Streets of Rage 2, known in Japan as Bare Knuckle II: Shitou e no Requiem (ベア・ナックルII 死闘への鎮魂歌 lit. "Bare Knuckle II: Requiem to the Deadly Struggle"), and in Europe as Streets of Rage II, is a Sega Mega Drive side-scrolling beat-'em-up game developed by Ancient and published by Sega. A sequel to the popular Streets of Rage, it was first released in the United States in December 1992 to widespread commercial success and critical acclaim, and has since developed a reputation as one of the finest examples of the beat-'em-up genre.

Boasting responsive and satisfying gameplay, well-balanced design, and a variety of creative and memorable stages, Streets of Rage 2 is equally celebrated for its world-renowned soundtrack. Veteran composer Yuzo Koshiro's club music-inspired approach to the game's soundtrack was exceedingly well-received, serving as an inspiration for a number of musicians, developers, and fans across the globe, and resulting in Koshiro becoming one of few Japanese developers to gain name recognition outside of Japan - to such a point where Streets of Rage 2's soundtrack received a stateside release, a rarity for the American market.

The passion and consideration visible in Ancient's work ensured the staying power and continued success of the Streets of Rage series, both as one of Sega's flagship franchises and as one of the Mega Drive's most fondly-remembered titles. It's phenomenal popularity saw it ported to a number of different platforms - such as contemporary Master System and Game Gear versions, as well as the eventual release of a successful 1994 sequel Streets of Rage 3 - and continues to receive direct ports to the majority of modern consoles, personal computers, and mobile phones.

Story

One year after the events of Streets of Rage, the game's former protagonists Adam Hunter, Axel Stone, and Blaze Fielding go to a nightspot and reminisce over their defeat of Mr. X. The following day Axel gets a call from Eddie "Skate" Hunter, Adam's younger brother, telling him that he returned to the brothers' house to find it in shambles, with a picture of Adam chained to a wall next to Mr. X left behind. Axel, Blaze, Skate, and their friend Max embark on a mission to rescue their friend, traversing through the city once again overrun by Mr. X's criminal gang.


One year after the battle...

The city that had been plagued with crime and violence was safe and peaceful.

However, evil has once again cast its shadow over the city.

Mr. X, the Syndicate boss believed destroyed by the three young vigilantes, has come back to life stronger than ever.

Thirsty for revenge, he kidnaps Adam in an attempt to lure Axel and Blaze into a trap!

Axel and Blaze set out to help their companion, joined by Axel's friend Max, a wrestler, and Adam's kid brother, Skate. They're determined to save Adam and put Mr. X out of action!

Four young friends, rage burning inside them, make a stand for friendship and peace...

— Opening sequence


Gameplay

For the most part, Streets of Rage 2 remains largely unchanged from its predecessor in terms of gameplay, however, makes several important additions that would become staples in the series.

Rather than all characters sharing the same special move to defeat all on-screen enemies, each character is given their own unique directed special attack, more casually called forward special, which allows the player to deal great damage with a single hit. Also included are stationary special moves, casually simply called special, that allow them to break out of holds, which can in turn damage enemies both in front of and behind them. The amount of times that special and forward special attacks can be used is limited, as each decreases the player's life gauge. In addition, each character has a unique blitz move (e.g. Axel's Grand Uppercut) that causes substantial damage without depleting their energy.

The Game Gear version also introduced an exclusive move to this version: super attacks, a move killing all enemies on screen that can only be used once if players don't find and pick up star items to perform them for additional times.

The most notable change between Streets of Rage and Streets of Rage 2 on Mega Drive are the aesthetics - Streets of Rage 2 uses bigger sprites and backgrounds, which in turn leads to greater combat accuracy (at the expense of screen estate). Characters are all individually named and there are more special effects.

SoR2 Axel portrait.png
Axel Stone アクセル・ストーン (English / Japanese) / Yǎsù Shǐdùn 雅素史頓 (Chinese)
Like the previous game, Axel is the middle-of-the-road character and is considered the best choice for beginners due to his all-around stats. His blitz attack is the Grand Uppercut, which is arguably the most useful and effective move of the game due to its high damage but relatively fast execution, which make it effective against bosses and enemies with his "breakout" special move. He has average movement speed and agility.


* Yuzo Koshiro revealed at the 30th anniversary of the 1st SoR that, although the MD American manual of SoR2 lists Grand Uppercut and the GG American manual Grand Upper, he really wanted to render Ground Upper in the Japanese manual[51].

Blaze is the faster option, although the game hides this from the user with its "star" system for measuring stats (which in reality isn't tied to the actual programmed stats). This comes at the expense of dealing less damage to enemies with some of her moves.

Eddie "Skate" Hunter (English) / Sammy Hunter サミー・ハンター (Japanese) / Àidí "Shǐjié" Hēngtè 艾迪“史傑”亨特 (Chinese)
Skate, known as Sammy in Japan (a reference to the Sega-published DJ Boy, originally by Sammy) is the lightest and most agile character, the weakest in terms of combo damage, but the second strongest in terms of grappling. Skate is the only character capable of sprinting, thanks to the rollerskates after which he is named, which can allow him to escape many attacks which the other characters would not be able to avoid.

Max is the "powerhouse" of the game possessing great strength at the expense of slow movement speed and, like Adam in the previous game, he is only present in the Mega Drive version. This puts him at a disadvantage with speedier enemies.

The name variations (Jack, Beano, and Soya) come from Japanese bean snacks sold at the time.
SoR2 Electra Sprite.png
Electra
Electra, known as Nora in Streets of Rage, and all of her variations, always come at you armed with an electric whip.

Variations: Big-Go, Heart, Balloon, Bongo, Gourmand, Golba, Buffet, Dante, Titan, Anry

SoR2 MD Round1.png Round 1 - Downtown
Start your search where knife-wielding punks rule the streets. Trail them into a seedy downtown dive and clean house! In a back alley behind the bar, you'll meet Barbon, a bartender who lifts barbells more than bottles - and isn't happy about you trashing his clientele!
SoR2 MD Round2.png Round 2 - Bridge Construction
There's a toll on this bridge, and bomb-tossing bikers plan to take it out of your hide! In the back of a moving supply truck, you'll challenge one of their best warriors. At the far end of the bridge, an airborne attacker threatens to ruin your day!
SoR2 MD Round3.png Round 3 - Amusement Park
Let the local slime know that the party's over as you stroll through the park grounds. Score a few hits in a local arcade, and enter the Pirates attraction, where blade-wielding ninja types make for a rough ride! Try out the Alien House, where the props explode and real danger lurks in the fake fog. You might even have to take on the attraction ifself!
SoR2 MD Round4.png Round 4 - Stadium
On the diamond, you'll meet Big Ben, a baseball fan who looks like he's had one too many chili dogs. Clean his clock and watch that fiery breath! A secret elevator takes you to an underground arena where the winner takes all!
SoR2 MD Round5.png Round 5 - Ship
Check out the cargo holds for valuables and gangsters, and take on Raven, a vicious kickboxer! Swab the upper decks with a couple of undesirables, but be on the lookout for some really bad news...
SoR2 MD Round6.png Round 6 - Jungle
There's no time to stop and enjoy the scenery. You'll be too busy with Raven's kick-boxing buddies! Knock through sandbags and grab items while you can. You'll need all the stamina you can get for the battle ahead!

Take on weaves of attackers on moving conveyor belts. Then grab a cargo elevator up to the roof, where you'll take on two very solid foes!

History

Release

Japanese television advertisements featured Reina Hazuki 葉月レイナ as Blaze Fielding[52], wrongly rendered as Hazuzi in GameFan [53].

In Europe, the Mega Drive Streets of Rage 2 was released around the period where Sega switched from the classic "black grid" design of its Mega Drive boxes to the "blue" style of 1993 onwards. Later prints of the cartridge label use this newer style (with the "Mega Drive" text printed vertically rather than horizontally) - it is not thought the box or instruction manual was changed at any point.

Legacy

The direct sequel, Streets of Rage 3, borrows heavily from Streets of Rage 2.

Streets of Rage 2 has been included on numerous compilations of Mega Drive games and was brought to the Mega Play arcade system. It is also available on the Wii Virtual Console, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, Steam and iOS. The iOS version was removed from sale on iTunes in 2015.[54]

The Xbox Live Arcade version sold 184,555 downloads, as of 2011.[55]

Comic adaptation

Sonic the Comic included few "Streets of Rage" comics strips, which seem to be heavily based on Streets of Rage 2. Curiously, Max Thunder has replaced Adam Hunter's role as one of the people who left the police force. Adam Hunter isn't seen anywhere. The story arcs are: "Streets of Rage" (Issue #7 to issue #12), "Skate's Story" (#25 to #30), and "The Only Game in Town" (#41 to #46). The special issue Sonic the Poster Mag 7 had a one-part story called "Facts of Life".

Versions

Varying levels of censorship were included for western releases of the game. In the North American version, the cigar smoked by Mr. X in round 8 is removed, as is the ability to see up Blaze's skirt when she performs certain moves. The European version has the upskirt animations, but no cigar. There are minor name changes across characters also.

Streets of Rage 2 was one of the first Mega Drive titles to be region-locked, however, data is largely consistent between the two versions (i.e. there are two title screens, just one is disabled). If one changes the region in an emulator, elements of the game may change, and if physical cartridge sizes were not an issue, the European and Japanese versions of the game would be interchangeable (although at the correct speed, as the PAL version runs in unoptimized 50Hz) and vice versa.

Prototype

A prototype of Bare Knuckle II was leaked onto the internet, with the dump being very different from the final, and only Round 1 being playable. The prototype lacks sound effects, and the scrapped music track "Walking Bottom" is played throughout. The player cannot pick up weapons, even if they are within range. Max has a different sprite set and can vault enemies, which means he cannot perform his Atomic power throw.

Localised names

Today, mainland China uses the title Nù zhī Tiěquán 怒之铁拳 for the franchise, a direct rendering into Chinese of the first game's Japanese subtitle Ikari no Tekken 怒りの鉄拳, literally Furious Iron Fist. In Hong Kong and in Taiwan, the franchise is named Gédòu Sānrénzǔ 格鬥三人組, literally The Fighting Trio as the first game of the series allowed players to choose between 3 characters. So, the official title found in Hong Kong's Mandarin Chinese manual (given below) is actually quite estranged from the current practices in the Chinese speaking regions.

Soundtrack

Main article: Streets of Rage 2 Original Soundtrack.

Streets of Rage 2's soundtrack was composed by Yuzo Koshiro (known for his work on the first Streets of Rage and The Revenge of Shinobi) and Motohiro Kawashima. This soundtrack is considered by some to be the best of the series, and the printed album is by far the easiest of the series' printed releases to find since there was a US release as well as a Japanese one.
