New Streets Of Rage And ESWAT Games Were Being Pitched To Sega
Backbone Entertainment was doing some neat stuff with Sega and we’re not talking about the Sega Vintage Collection. They pitched a new Streets of Rage game to Sega. Concept art for Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding, and Adam Hunter – the original trio from Streets of Rage – was shared by a former Backbone Entertainment artist.
What’s really interesting is Backbone Entertainment also put together a pitch to reboot ESWAT! ESWAT: City Under Siege is a sidescrolling action game for the Genesis.
We also have some artwork from Backbone Entertainment’s unreleased Gauntlet game for Nintendo DS. Eidos was supposed to publish Gauntlet for DS back in 2008, but the game never materialized despite being reviewed by a couple of magazines. Here’s the Wizard, Elf, Valkyrie, and Barbarian.
