Independent development studios MakinGames and Team17 have joined forces to revive Raging Justice, a nostalgic 90s-style beat ‘em up coming to consoles and PC. The 2D brawler will feature HD graphics and surround sound support, as well as local co-op multiplayer.
In Raging Justice, players will kick, punch, and brawl their way through hordes of street criminals and thugs as gritty cops Nikki Rage and Rick Justice, the game’s namesake duo. You must decide whether to arrest criminals or beat them to a pulp instead, and your choice will ultimately impact the ending of the game.
Raging Justice features an assortment of weapons to choose from, including bar stools, baseball bats, and even lethal fighting pigeons. A variety of vehicles are available as well, including tractors and lawnmowers. Vehicles will help you avoid getting hit, which makes them useful tools during combat. Keep an eye on your vehicle’s health though, because once it gets depleted, your trusty ride will explode.
Classic brawlers like this are even more fun when played with a companion. Luckily, Raging Justice supports local co-op multiplayer as well. Players who wish to fight alongside their friends can enlist a partner to join in on the brutality. However, there is friendly fire, so watch where you throw your punches.
Raging Justice will arrive later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. To get a glimpse of the action, check out the latest announcement trailer above.
