Sega today announced intentions to bring Streets of Rage to the iPhone. When's it coming out you ask? How's about right now! That's right, folks. Because of Apple's policy on speaking about iPhone apps/games before release, Sega simultaneously announced the game's existence with its release.

Unfortunately, our friends at Touch Arcade were none too impressed with Sega's port, saying the game suffers from tremendous slow down and renders the game "unplayable on the 3GS." Oh no! We're too busy spending our time with Drop7 to play anything else on the iPhone, so how about you tell us, Joystiq Biomass™. Anyone drop the $4.99 for Streets of Rage today and encounter any problems?
