1Engage in some more Streets of Rage-like action on Switch

Streets of Rage 4 is truly excellent, but there are other side-scrolling beat ’em ups out there also worthy of your time and money.

We’re pretty sure that Streets of Rage 4 is the best side-scrolling beat ’em up ever made, but at some point you’re going to tire of it. The good news is that there are many games available on Nintendo Switch that offer a similar experience. The majority of them have their own twist as well, adding a bit more flavour.

In recent years the side-scrolling beat ’em genre has had somewhat of a resurgence, with old ones spruced up and released on new formats and entirely new ones being made. It means there are plenty available on Switch if you take the time to dig through the eShop. Though you don’t need to; we’ve done the hard work for you.

We’ve put together a list of the best games like Streets of Rage on Switch. Peruse our list with your eyes and you might just find something that takes your fancy. None of them are quite as good as Streets of Rage 4, but they all have hours of entertainment to offer.
