Backbone Entertainment came up with some concepts to pitch to Sega.
Streets of Rage is one of Sega’s more well-known yet understated franchises, gaining great popularity on the Sega Genesis before being subject to unsuccessful next-gen reboots. Meanwhile, Cyber Police ESWAT is a side-scrolling 1989 action game that’s better relegated to the cult classics of history.
It seems that new versions of both games were being pitched to Sega at some point – as concept art created by the original trio behind Streets of Rage, namely Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding and Adam Hunter was posted online by a former artist for Backbone Entertainment. Check them out below.
