Whether this game ends up being good or not, they should be able to be sued by Sega for basically ripping Streets of Rage off. This entire industry makes a living out of "aping" other people's ideas so often, we've all grown tolerant. Compared to other art forms, ours is the worst in that regard.

The reason why is because you can't copyright game mechanics. The game can be the same thing, but as long as the level design, assets and name are different, there's nothing they can do. Look no further than mobile games

I know, I understand the law. But that doesn't mean I have to agree with it. Ripping off other people's ideas is as old as the hills but that doesn't make it right imo.
