You must apply this ips patch to “Streets of Rage 2 (USA)”. It is recommended that you use Lunar IPS.

Version 1.55 fixed a glitch of v1.54.

There are two files in the package.

  • SOR2IAHv155d is V1.55_D.
  • SOR2IAHv155g is V1.55_G.

Earlier versions are no longer provided.

In this game, Bruce and Arnie are extremely powerful. Therefore, this hack is not for the gamers that are looking for challenges, but for gamers that want to kick some ass.

Special thanks to Huo Yan, for he provided the author instructions and allowed the author to use some of his work.

Some sprites were ripped by the following people (with modification):

  • Fei Long - Lord Zymeth
  • Kunoichi - Enscripture
  • Blaze - Dimps

The hacked rom is tested under Gens and Kega Fusion.

For more information, including move list, please refer to the readme file.

An amazing idea well implemented

Reviewed By: Recca on 26 Apr 2018

SOR2 - International Action Heroes is a hack that replaces the characters Max with Bruce Lee, Axel with Arnold Schwarzenegger (Arnie) and Skate with Kelly. Blaze is the only one of the original cast that remains, but her sprite has been slightly altered to resemble the one used in the first Streets of Rage game. The idea of being able to play as either Bruce or Arnold, two of the biggest and well known actors in action movies is truly an amazing idea that was well implemented and integrated into this game. The controls are flawless and the sprites are all well designed to fit perfectly with the other sprites and color scheme used in SOR2. If you’re a fan of classic action movies, definitely give this hack a go. It’s easily one of the best hacks and worth playing.
