Streets of Rage 4 still doesn't have a release date yet, but the teams at Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games have attempted to tide us over with a punchy gameplay teaser for the upcoming beat-'em-up sequel.

If you've ever played a Streets of Rage game before (and if you haven't, then what's wrong with you?), then you'll be pleased to know that SoR 4 looks very familiar. There's new stuff to see, and the visuals are obviously more polished, but the spirit of the Mega Drive games is definitely there. 

Axel and Blaze are the only characters confirmed right now, although it's great to see them performing some of their classic moves from the previous games. It also looks like you can juggle enemies now, something which is sure to evolve the core gameplay. 

Platforms for Streets of Rage 4 have yet to be announced.
