Punch, punch, kick, kick! Noooooooooo! Welcome back to the next episode of the Never Ending Backlog podcast. Today we are reviewing the limited-timeframe, promotional freeware, beat’em up computer game, Streets of Kamurocho; released for SEGA’s 60th Anniversary celebration, this year, or 2020 for anyone joining us later.

A hybrid of Streets of Rage 2 and the Yakuza series, Streets of Kamurocho has officially been the only complete playthrough game on this podcast! Less than an hour of game time, and we have officially beat the game. Granted, that seems less impressive when you realize there is only a single level, and this is primarily a marketing stunt; however, it was still fun, and worthy of a review.

Steam Description:

The death of the of the Tojo Clan's third Chairman has plunged the organization into chaos. The violence spreads to the streets, and only Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima can put an end to the bloodshed!

Technically we got that description from Fandom’s website; as the original Steam Store listing has already been removed (this beating the game achievement is looking less impressive with every sentence), since this game is no longer available for a free download. Therefore, we won’t be able to provide a link to the Steam Store this time; however, we will provide a link to the developer, Empty Clip Studios, and the Fandom page, for reference.
