The awesome Streets of Rage 4 is getting its first paid DLC soon, as well as some free content. Included in the update are new game modes, characters, and more.
Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games have announced today that Streets of Rage 4 will be getting its first paid DLC in the form of Mr. X Nightmare. There’s no release date for the DLC yet, and as the teaser trailer only shows us one of the three new playable characters, expect to have this drawn out over two more teaser trailers…
So what’s in the Mr. X Nightmare DLC? The DLC adds three new playable characters, including Estel Aguirre, who originally appeared as a boss in Streets of Rage 4. For those who buy the Mr. X Nightmare DLC, Estel will be a playable character. The other two characters have not yet been announced.
The paid DLC will also bring a new Survival game mode where players will be challenged in a series of tests of skill. Again, not much has been said about this game mode as more will be revealed in subsequent trailers.
And finally, there’s a new character customisation feature coming to Streets of Rage 4. This means you’ll be able to deck out your favourite fighter with the moves you enjoy using the most.
There’s a free update coming alongside the DLC, too, and it’ll bring a new game mode in the form of New Mania+ difficulty, as well as a new in-depth training mode and new colour palette options.
Streets of Rage 4 released last year to rave reviews, including a very, very high score from us here at Pure PlayStation. You can check that review out here or watch the video below.
