It’s been a while since we heard anything about Streets of Rage 4. Today, we just learned the release date and additional details.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, the executive producer of the game announced that the first game in the series in a quarter-century is coming out later this month with a new Battle Mode.
Battle Mode lets you select your favorite characters and test your skills against one to three friends across several memorable levels. While it’s true that Streets of Rage 4 is all about cooperation, we thought it would be fun to let you guys play around with the characters and discover which of them is the most powerful, and which ones best suit your playing style. Whether you want to train your combos and specials, or just have some fun, Battle Mode is the place to do it – and it will be available right from the start.
Sega announced Streets of Rage 4 last year. It is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It’s the first new entry in the 2D beat ’em up series in 26 years. Back in 2015, Streets of Rage 2 was released on Nintendo 3DS, but that was just a port of the Genesis classic.
