On This Day In Gaming History!: March 17th, 2018

Streets of Rage 3 (known in Japan as Bare Knuckle III), was a side-scrolling beat ’em up developed and published by Sega. It was released in North America on March 17th, 1994 for the Sega Genesis. It was the last part of the Streets of Rage series.

The game features several enhancements over Streets of Rage and Streets of Rage 2 such as a more complex plot, multiple endings, longer levels, increased difficulty, more in-depth scenarios and faster gameplay. Weapons could now only be used for a few times before breaking and could be integrated with unique moves with certain characters, hidden characters were added and a few cutscenes were included to give the story greater depth.

GamePro commented that the game is little different from previous entries in the series, but praised the new moves and support for the six-button controller.
