Description:

Streets of Rage 2 - the Return of the Fighters 2021 (mod)

Mod author: Dha Lau Hoo (Da Lao Hu)

Part I. ROM Info

This mod is based on “Streets of Rage 2 - USA version”. You must possess the original ROM before you can play this mod.

Please backup your original ROM, and apply the IPS patch to the ROM. It is recommended that you use the Lunar IPS tool. You can download it from the Internet.

Part II. System Update

The differences between the system of this mod and the original game are listed below:

  • The four player characters are Max (SOR2), Axel (SOR3), Blaze (SOR3), and Shiva (SOR2).
  • The images of Axel, Blaze, and Shiva are improved.
  • The player can gain Skill Points (SP) by hitting the enemies: Each punch or kick landed on an enemy will increase SP by 1. Throwing an enemy will increase SP by 2. Piledriver (Max only) will increase SP by 3. Super special attacks do not increase SP. The maximum value of SP is 100.
  • Player can perform running special attack by pressing A button while running. Running special attack does not consume SP or HP. However, it requires that the player maintains at least 50 SP.
  • Player can perform super special attack by pressing forward and A at the same time (while not running). Super special attack consumes 20 SP. Kickboxers cannot block player’s super special. However, bosses still can.
  • Tea and coffee help the player to recover SP. A cup increases player SP by 10. A pot increases player SP by 20.
  • Player can still perform defensive special attack by pressing A without any direction button. After the defensive special move, the player will remain invulnerable for a very short moment.
  • Player can perform air juggling stunts. Knock your enemies into the air and kick them as hard as you can!
  • Max can perform a tactical roll instead of running.
  • Axel and Shiva can run horizontally or in diagonal directions.
  • Blaze can run freely and make U-turns.
  • Player can jump longer while running (or rolling for Max).
  • Glitches that caused lags for jumping and special attacks in the original game are fixed in this mod.
  • The special button A is less sensitive.
  • Charge attacks (hold B and release) are disabled in this mod.
