Streets of Rage 4 is getting new characters and more after selling 2.5 million copies

Editor Dotemu with developers Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games announced that new content is coming Streets of Rabies 4 via paid DLC and a free update. Neither has a release date, although we know both will be released at the same time “later this year”.

Streets of Rage 4 was released just under a year ago, debuting on Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It was one of my favorite games of 2020, and it has sold over 2.5 million copies.

The paid DLC, Mr. X Nightmare, will add three new playable characters. This includes Estel Aguirre, the passionate policeman who appeared as a boss in the original version of the game. She’s also someone I thought was a cool playable character when I first fought her, so I am happy. The other two new additions are a mystery at the moment.

M. X Nightmare also adds a survival game mode, new moves and weapons, and more songs. The free update will add a new difficulty setting (New Mania +), training and tutorial modes, as well as new character color palettes.
