Streets of Rage Meets Hotline Miami in New Mother Russia Bleeds Trailer

Check out the over-the-top brawler shown during Sony's press conference.


Devolver Digital has released a new trailer for Mother Russia Bleeds, a side-scrolling beat-em-up in the same vein as Streets of Rage, but with an aesthetic style reminiscent of Hotline Miami.

The game was shown at Sony's E3 press conference, and has been described as an "ultra-violent co-op brawler."

Mother Russia Bleeds is set in an alternate U.S.S.R. where a group of imprisoned street fighters rally against an oppressive criminal authority and crippling drug addictions. Naturally, they do these through the medium of punching, kicking, and inflicting an alarming amount of violence on others.

Check out the trailer below.
