When Streets of Rage 4 was announced over a year ago, fans noticed that very little was said about the new game’s music. The fourth game in the long-dormant series has a strong legacy to live up to in terms of music, with the original Yuzo Koshiro soundtrack being both memorable and blood-pumping on the Genesis. While Dotemu had been pretty quiet about the composer, a trailer released today finally announced who would be producing music for the game, and it turns out to be quite the star-studded list.

The list is headlined by original composer Yuzo Koshiro, who also did music for Shinobi, Actraiser, and many others, as well as his Streets of Rage collaborator Motohiro Kawashima. The list also includes Yoko Shimomura, composer for games like Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy XV; Hideki Naganuma, known for games like Jet Set Radio and Sonic Rush; and Keiji Yamagishi, best known for the NES Ninja Gaiden games and Tecmo Bowl.
Streets of Rage 4 has not been dated or given platforms yet, but maybe we will find out more at either Gamescom or PAX coming up soon.
