Streets of Rage 3/Hidden content
From Sega Retro
- Back to: Streets of Rage 3.
Extended lives options
The level select will only go up to Stage 6, but Game Genie code CC2T-JAC2 will enable Stages 7A and 7B in this menu.
Advanced level select
A more advanced level select is hidden in the game, requiring Pro Action Replay code FFFB01:0010 to access it. Unlike the above, this screen allows starting from exact scenes, including the unused motorbike levels (see below). This screen can be accessed in both Bare Knuckle III and Streets of Rage 3.
Play as the same character
Defeat Bruce/Danch without defeating Roo/Victy in Stage 2. When continuing after running out of lives, he can be selected.
Ash can only be unlocked in Bare Knuckle III. Due to his removal in Streets of Rage 3, he cannot be accessed by normal means, but his playable data is still intact and he can be re-enabled as a playable character by using Game Genie code BAWA-AAA0.
Two unused motorbike levels exist within the game, both following Stage 6 and leading to their respective levels whether the player rescued General Ivan Petrov/the Chief of Police in time or not. One is set in the wasteland where the player has to get to Mr. X's base while avoiding a biker throwing petrol bombs, while the other is set on a bridge with Donovan chucking barrels at the player in an attempt to stop them from reaching the White House/city hall.
These levels are at their most functional in Bare Knuckle III, leading to where they go as intended, but are completely unplayable in Streets of Rage 3 due to the pointers for the graphics and palettes being corrupted; the wasteland ends as soon as it loads, and the bridge crashes when it ends. Copying the relevant data from a Bare Knuckle III savestate will help fix these issues.
