Raging Justice – Release Date and New Character Reveal

Posted on 05 Apr 2018

Raging Justice, a belt-scrolling beat-em-up in the vein of Streets Of Rage has got a release date at last: 8 May 2018. The date covers PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. Additionally there’s a new character reveal: Ashley King, a teenager who looks like someone mashed Ellen DeGeneres together with Justin Beiber. Joking aside, more variety in playable characters is a good thing and we’re looking forward to seeing how they play.


Official Press Release

RAGING JUSTICE WILL LAUNCH ON MAY 8th 2018 AND A THIRD CHALLENGER ENTERS THE FRAY!

UK – 5th April 2018 – Today, award-winning international games label Team17 and independent developer MakinGames are proud to announce that RAGING JUSTICE will drop kick its way onto Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch™, PC and Mac on May 8th 2018. Also announced is a third playable character: Ashley King, a street-smart inner-city kid with a backpack full of whoop ass.

The streets of Big Smoke City aren’t safe for anyone, let alone a kid and so it’s a good job that Ashley King isn’t just any kid. Raised under the constant fear of gang violence, Ash had to grow up and grow up fast. Drawing influence from action movie heroes, Ash has developed a fast and lethal fighting style that takes enemies by surprise.

NAME: Ashley King

HEIGHT: 5’5”

AGE: 15

INFO: Ash’s inner-city upbringing was blighted by the fear of gang violence. Fast and lethal, Ash learned to fight on the streets, using movies as inspiration for an arsenal of lethal moves including a signature Crane Kick finisher.

“We realised that Raging Justice needed a third playable character and we wanted someone who would fit the style of the game yet give a very different feel when playing.” Said Nic Makin, lead programmer of MakinGames. Jay Howse, lead artist, added “We chose a teenager because I wanted something different to the usual ‘veteran cop/ex-military’ type. I wanted more of a fish out of water type character, someone who might have ended up in the situation by accident but still manages to hold their own and kick some serious arse!”
