“We’ve been completely fond of the beat‘em up genre since early childhood and played most of its classic games. To create Streets of Fury, we took inspiration from games like Streets of Rage, Fatal Fury or also Guardian Heroes” said Cyrille Lagarigue, one the two creator of the game.“We’re very excited to see our game released on the Xbox Live Arcade and to have succeeded in mixing some of the best gameplay mechanics from classic 2D fighting games into Streets of Fury,” declared Jordi Asensio, the other creator.

Streets of Fury features a coop mode allowing up to 4 players to fight simultaneously on the same Xbox 360, two different solo campaigns offering 30 stages and more than 60 types of opponents, a team or free-for-all versus mode, a versus AI survival coop mode and 5 levels of difficulty. The player can choose between 9 characters available, each offering a wide range of combos.
