The upcoming Streets of Rage 4 is going to feature a lot of throwbacks to the classic Sega beat-em-up series, not least in the soundtrack department as it's been announced that original series composers Yūzō Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima are to contribute to the game's soundtrack.

They're joining a host of classic game soundtrack talent, with Street Fighter II composer Yoko Shimomura, Jet Set Radio composer Hideki Naganuma and Ninja Gaiden's Keiji Yamagishi also making songs for the upcoming game.

There's a mini video documentary to go with this announcement that has all these folks talking about creating the soundtrack for the game which we've included below. Streets of Rage 4 doesn't have a date or formats yet, but so far it's looking pleasingly familiar.
