Streets of Rage 4 sits as one of my favourite games of the year 2020, and so I’m happy to be writing that the game could be getting some new content in the future. The only problem is, the developers aren’t sure yet what they’re going to do for players.
The developers recently took part in a Reddit AMA with fans of the game and the series, and when asked about future content updates and whether new playable characters would be added, Cyrille Imbert, CEO at Dotemu confirmed that the studio wants to add more content. The problem is that nothing has yet been decided, but the developers are listening to the fans and will share “what” and “when” soon.
Another Cyrille, but over at Guard Crush Games, and with Lagarigue as her last name, said that the studios is “thinking about adding playable characters” but didn’t specify which, also noting that the studio has “not made a decision yet.”
It’s looking good then, and the developers have even gone as far to tease players who are already asking for Streets of Rage 5 by saying “at Dotemu we are currently working on three unannounced similar projects, so stay tuned.” More fighting games from these guys will be a treat, even if it doesn’t say ‘Streets of Rage’ on the cover.
