Overview

“What was once a happy, peaceful, productive city, full of life and activity, has fallen into the hands of a secret criminal syndicate. The leader of the syndicate has somehow managed to keep his identity a secret. The organization soon absorbed the city government. They even had the police force in their clutches. Looting, random violence and destruction are rampant. No one is safe walking the streets, day or night…

“As the chaos continued at full strength, three young police officers tried to establish a special attack unit. They were repeatedly turned down by their superiors, most of whom had been bought by the organisation or were too afraid to make a stand. One day, when they could no longer stand by and watch their city being demolished, they quit the force!’

“Adam Hunter, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding decided to forgo their careers in legal law enforcement and put their lives on the line. They are without weapons, but each possesses great hand-to-hand combat abilities. Take them into the heart of the city and battle the most dangerous wave of bad dudes and chicks ever assembled. Make the city a place where people no longer have to walk the Streets of Rage!”

Notes

According to translation research done by @romalerts for their forthcoming Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works Kickstarter book, the working title for Bare Knuckle was Dragon-SWAT, which we think is a combination of ESWAT meets Double Dragon.

  • The music on this game was so upbeat for it’s time

  • Whoa! when this came out it was like nothing on any system before it, in the style of Shinobi and possibly all the same team. Think the sound tracks to this game are the best out of the 3 SOR.(maybe even best all time on MD?) Put this game on the hardest setting with two players- it goes mental! A very essential game and one that no serious MD game collector should be without.
