Streets of Rage 2 - PLUS ULTRA

Hack of Streets of Rage 2


I. Overview:

This hack is for fans to play for usual characters from the SOR universe.

The hack is primarily inspired by these two works: SOR2 - ULTRA 2018 and SOR2 - The Return of the Fighters 2019.

This hack allows the player to play as the modified versions Max, SOR3 versions of Axel, Blaze and Roo in SOR2.

II. Features:

  • Axel and Blaze have SOR3 style appearances with some modifications.
  • All playable characters can run (with weapon animations).
  • All playable characters can change direction and turn around while running.
  • All playable characters can jump further while running.
  • The command to run (f, f) becomes more sensitive.
  • The game has Juggling. I mean JUGGLING!!
  • Neutral Air Attack(Jump+B) is now Air to Air. Works great for juggling an opponent in a corner or while playing in Co-op, but can miss when attacking a ground target.
  • You can choose the same characters.
  • SoR3 like combo style - you can deal full combo, without hit enemy.
  • Player characters have animation recovery when they escape from being thrown (up + C).
  • Charge attacks require holding B for only 2/3 second.
  • Offensive Special no longer costs player’s own health.
  • If the player presses A while running, the player’s character will perform Offensive Special (in the original game, nothing will happen).
  • You can use the Defensive Special and Offensive Special when you capture the enemy.
  • You can use the Defensive Special and Offensive Special when grabbing an enemy from behind.
  • KO count of the players is displayed.
  • Roo replaces Skate as a playable character.
  • Mania difficulty is directly accessible.
  • Stage selection is available.

III. Characters:


  • Max has the fewest changes, the new dynamics will boost it incredibly.
  • Used Pile driver patch (but replaced the sprite with a more suitable one)
  • You can move a little while using Defensive Special.


  • Inspired by this hack, but sprites from SoR3 were used.
  • Jump Down + B: Tatsumaki.
  • New Grab Combo.
  • New FFB. Spin to Win!
  • FA now is “Shoryuken” You can destroyed Jet.


  • Used color scheme from this hack.
  • New, custom B + C attack;
  • B + C. The sprite is drawn by savok.
  • B + C new special effect taken from this rom.
  • Jump Down + B: Terra Shield.
  • New FFB.


  • The best representative of the Hunter family!
  • Used some new sprites from SORRemake.
  • New Throw Animation.
  • New grab combo.
  • Roo can now use the “headbat” immediately, when capturing, the neutral attack button.
  • Jump DB: “Tatsumaki”

IV. Hint:

If you did a Forward Jump Attack with a run, and continue to hold forward, then upon landing the character will run further. You can use this to apply the new B + C Blaze attack. Example

V. v0.4.33 Changelog:

  • New Blitz Attack for Blaze;
  • Few Minor fix;
  • Added Mana System:
  • The player can gain MP by hitting the enemies: Each hit will increase MP by 1.
  • Throwing an enemy will increase MP by 2. Piledriver (Max only) will increase MP by 3.
  • Offensive special attacks do not increase SP.
  • The maximum value of MP is 100.
  • Player can perform offensive special attack by pressing forward and A only if he have 20 MP.
  • Tea and coffee help the player to recover MP. A cup increases player MP by 10. A pot increases player MP by 20

I have it on steam, and I have to say the limitations to this classic gem in the hacking world is just amazing. I truly love the juggling system added, it makes it feel like SOR4 in a way. I also love that the F+A doesn’t drain any health, so I admit I’ve been spamming that in the juggles with Axel and Max.

I actually like Max’s style more in this than in the original, maybe it’s the run feature, lol. I have yet to play as Roo, currently playing as Blaze, who’s slightly more difficult to pull off juggling combos. I almost got confused by her B+C attack (I thought it was broken!) until I saw the example video, thanks for that!

I give this a 10/10, I’ve played the old version of this and this one is definitely one of my favs.

Version 0.4.33 Recommended - Yes
