As part of their 60th anniversary celebration Sega announced on October 14th, 2020 that four free “mini games” would be released on Steam, once a day, between October 15th and 18th. All four games would then be removed from sale on October 19th, giving players a dwindling amount of time to claim each one. As of October 22nd it is unclear if Sega will make these titles available again in one form or another.
Sega “re-released” two of the titles in November with Streets of Kamurocho being available between November 13th and 16th, and Armor of Heroes available between November 19th and 22nd. At the time this suggested that the remaining two games would also briefly return before the end of Sega’s 60th anniversary celebration on December 13th, 2020.
NOTE: Based on feedback from readers it appears that there are a few methods to claim these and other free titles on Steam. SteamDB offers a walkthrough on one process while you can also simply visit a game’s SteamDB page (check the table above) and try the green “Install” button at top right.
About the Game
In celebration of SEGA’s 60th Anniversary, SEGA mashed Streets of Rage 2 with the ever-popular Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s Yakuza series, and Streets of Kamurocho was born.
Play as two of the most loved characters – Kiryu and Majima – to brawl your way through Kamurocho.
The developers describe the content like this: Contains pixelated beatings, blunt and bladed weapons combat. No blood, though.
