Streets Of Rage 4 Release Date Announced

Streets of Rage 4, the long-awaited return for Sega’s iconic beat-em-up series, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 30. You’ll be able to pick it up for $25 or via Xbox Game Pass.

Along with announcing the release date, developers Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games also unveiled a new trailer showing off Streets of Rage 4’s Battle Mode. The legacy mode–which is returning from Streets of Rage 2 and Streets of Rage 3–lets you fight against friends in eight disparate arenas. Battle Mode is available for up to four players locally or two players online, whether you want to compete in a free-for-all brawl or partner up for some team-based action.

It’s been 25 years since the franchise’s last mainline entry. We got hands-on with the game back in 2018 and found it to be a nostalgic return to form for the classic series. Axel, Blaze, and Adam return along with a cast of new fighters and a striking hand-drawn art style. Olivier Derivière also delivers an original soundtrack, including contributions from series composers Yūzō Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima.
