Streets of Rage Trivia
- Many in-game sounds and even the main font were lifted directly from Revenge of Shinobi.
- In difficult situations, you can press the 'special attack' button. A cop will drive by in a car and set the entire environment on fire with a rocket launcher. The artwork of the police car may look familiar, it's exactly the same car used in E-SWAT: Cyber Police, an older SEGA arcade title which also got converted to the Megadrive.
ReleaseOne of the few games to be packed in with the Genesis.
Soundtrack on vinyl LPIn summer 2015, Data Discs released a vinyl soundtrack with the remastered soundtrack from the game. The remasterings were done in collaboration with the composer of the original game tracks Yuzo Koshiro. The LP features 16 tracks, 8 on each side. The recording were made from the original NEC PC-88 files, as well as a sampling from the Yamaha YM2612 chip of the MegaDrive/Genesis console.
