Streets of Rage 4 will feature something that fans have been requesting for years
This has jumped to the top of our WANT RIGHT NOW list.
We've known about this long-awaited sequel for a while now, and have kept a close eye on it, and today the latest trailer for Streets of Rage 4 has dropped some more info which makes it even more of a must-play for us than ever before.
On top of returning characters Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding and Adam Hunter, Streets Of Rage will be bringing along two new characters, Cherry Hunter (daughter of Adam) and the newly announced Floyd Iraia, who appears to be have a huge cybernetic piston for an arm.
The trailer also reveals some of the new music from iconic composers such as Yūzō Koshiro (Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3, Sonic the Hedgehog) and Motohiro Kawashima (Streets of Rage 2 and 3, Shinobi 2).
However, the big news is that developer Dotemu has revealed more information about the actual game itself and, more importantly, the multi-player aspects.
Fans of the original trilogy on the Sega Mega Drive - 1991, 1992 and 1994, respectively - will remember that one of the best parts of the gameplay was beating up the baddies alongside another player. Streets of Rage 4 will feature online two-player mode, but it will also feature local four-player mode!
If you've got the controllers, then FOUR of you can take on Big Boss and his not-as-big henchmen.
Streets Of Rage 4 is arriving on the PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC later in 2020.
