In a video, the France-based, DotEmu team announced that original composer for Streets of Rage 1-3 would be returning to lead the music team for the new fourth installment.
Yuzo Koshiro has been long lauded for his work on the series which many hail as some of the best video game music of all time. He leads a star studded team of legendary game music composers that will create original music for the game. The team includes Motohiro Kawashima, who worked on Streets of Rage 2 & 3 with Koshiro. Another major name is Yoko Shimomura who’s work includes Street Fighter II, Final Fantasy XV and Super Mario RPG. This answers one of the biggest questions fans of the series had as good music is a fundamental cornerstone of the series.
