Another trivia post here to finish off the Streets of Rage/Final Fight superparty. In a mildly shameful move, Capcom stole elements from the Streets of Rage 1 and 2 box art for Final Fight 2’s cover. This is a bit ironic, since most people regard Streets of Rage as Sega’s attempt to copy Final Fight.

I dig the art on this cover for Streets of Rage 3. Beats the American cover easily.

The Streets of Rage 2/Bare Knuckle 2 Japanese cover, or the “Van Damme” cover as I call it.

Wraparound cover art for Genesis was rare in the west. Streets of Rage 2 was cool enough to get some.
