Streets of Kamurocho is Streets of Rage 2 starring Yakuza’s Kiryu and Majima that will be free-to-play on October 17 as part of Sega’s 60th Anniversary event on Steam.

In addition to iconic Yakuza characters, the remixed beat ‘em up will also feature levels inspired by the games. It’s unclear how long it will be but it will feature local co-op. Seeing it in action feels like coming across a beautiful fan-made prototype except this one is real and won’t get hit with a copyright takedown notice.

You’ll only have until October 19 to download the game, but once you do you can keep it forever.

Sega also announced a number of other retro mini-games coming out this week:

  • Armour of Heroes (Relic Entertainment) – A top-down four-player tank combat game available October 15-19.
  • Endless Zone (Amplitude Studios) – A Fantasy Zone-style side-scrolling shooter based in Amplitdue’s Endless universe available October 16-19.
  • Golden Axed (Sega) – A restored build of an old, cancelled Golden Axe project available October 18-19.

In addition, you can link your Steam account to Sega’s website to get a free copy of NiGHTS into Dreams.


  • Remember to use US spelling when searching for “Armor of Heroes”.

    There are also some DLC freebies available currently like Sonic 2 for the Mega Drive and Genesis Classics, a bonus map for Shogun Total War 2 (apparently a formerly Gamestop preorder exclusive), and some Sega arcade machines for Two Point Hospital.
