Found by Eidolon

Eidolon wrote:According to Bare Knuckle's original design document being translated by the people behind the Mega Drive Kickstarter book, the working title for the game was D-SWAT.

Now the similarities with E-SWAT police car make sense suddenly!!

[Source: Twitter]

UPDATE: Properly translated, the working title was 'Dragon-SWAT'.

They are translating the story synopsis next Very Happy
on his site

BREAKING NEWS: Thanks to the team behind the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works on Kickstarter, who have the original 'Bare Knuckle' design document, we now know that the working title for the game was 'Dragon-SWAT' or 'D-SWAT'. A cross between Double Dragon and E-SWAT? It certainly makes sense why they reused the police car sprite from E-SWAT in the game.

Have a preview of the documentation ReadOnlyMemory got about Streets of Rage.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/darrenwall/sega-mega-drive-genesis-collected-works/posts/727570

If you didn't know it yet, the codename for the project was Dragon SWAT.

Very interesting stuff. Thanks Ice. Very Happy 

Also noticed that an old member from the old forum, Mentski, posted something on that site's comment section. But I agree with him about how apparent the police car is now in SOR1. It sounds like at one time this game was going to be a spin-off from E-SWAT.

I still can't get over how the first and third boxes say the same exact thing in the captions, just worded differently.

Even worse they pretty much gave away the last boss of the game LOL.

I really just think that title screen was just blended in with the character select screen. The trademark signature at the end makes it stand out.

But besides Eddie, Blaze's portrait is also somewhat different. She looks like she has a much more broader nose than normal and lips just like her SOR1 portrait.

The link to that page takes you to the main page, no to the image.

And it's interesting to point out that next to Barbon's Bar entrance, there's no car in the small alleyway where Jack should appear.

Which link?

Edit:I took some beta screens from magazines, this is Rocky known as Beta R.Bear. It's same character but different design (with name).

This is his stance from video footage:


This is from some of magazines:




This is final design known as R.Bear

More SOR2 beta: Unused objects



The barrel on this ship, looks like kind of rolling just like SORR's Barrel horizontal.



This trashcan never appeared in final.

(repost from above)


Beta trash probably early design for yellow trash. Only appeared BK2 beta v2.

Biker wants to fight first?!

Yep, it's fake as hell. The Genesis couldn't produce that many colors on screen.

Also, why does the anchor not have his own portrait but everyone else does? Razz
