The multiplayer narrative game launched on Xbox and PC in 2022, but it’s coming to PS4 and PS5 on March 7th, 2024.

The trailer for the game, which was announced at The Game Awards, had an amazing art style and looked like a blast to play. It’s launching on April 23rd, 2024, and it’s coming to PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Next year looks like a good year for side-scrolling action games.

Sega is making new titles in the Jet Set Radio, Shinobi, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, and Crazy Taxi franchises, according to a trailer shown at The Game Awards.

According to a press release, this list only comprises “the first” of Sega’s legacy franchises getting new games.
