The folks over at MakinGames – founded by former Rare developer Nic Makin – have officially announced that their 2D scrolling brawler Raging Justice will be releasing for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox One later this year. The game, which is a modern take on the classic 2D scrolling brawlers that dominated the previous gaming generation, has an announcement trailer as well, which you can check out below.
Much like other classic beat-em-up games, the premise of Raging Justice is simple: crime and corruption is rampant in the city, and it’s up to a team of hard-hitting, justice seeking mavericks to clean up the streets. There’s no word yet on when the game will be releasing for consoles, but fans that are excited for it should expect it to release sometime this year.
