SEGA takes down Streets of Rage Remake download links

Fans want a Streets of Rage Remake and SEGA didn’t answer. What did they do? They did it themselves, without using any of SEGA’s code. They recently released the final version of their game and it didn’t excite SEGA too much.

“SEGA have contacted regarding the download hosted on this site. While this issue is being resolved, please do not upload the game for others to download. Any links posted on this site will be removed. Thank you.”

Seems that SEGA might think that a remake like this, that is free, will cut into sales from their re-releases. It sucks, I really liked it when SEGA would allow people to remake stuff like this. They don’t say much to all those Sonic fan games.

Fan made remake of Streets of Rage has finally been released by the team that has been working on it for the past 8 years. I remember a long time ago, maybe around 2004, I was looking at the site excited for the release.

Now we are in 2011 and can now play it. The final product is massive with over 93 stages in story mode. You can download it below.
