Beat ’em up extended: Streets of Rage 4 is receiving Mr. X Nightmare paid DLC later this year

Streets of Rage 4 DLC

I adore Streets of Rage 4. It’s one of the best beat ’em ups I’ve played on Switch in recent memory. Even more so when you play with friends. As such, I’ve been hoping the game would get some DLC at some point, so I can continue punching the crap out of goons. Luckily, the publisher and co-developer of SoR4, Dotemu, announced the “Mr. X Nightmare” DLC today. It comes with a bevy of additions.

The devs can create Streets of Rage 4 DLC for years and I’ll never tire of it

Interested in what the expansion entails? Check out the official reveal trailer:

Those are some sick beats. This is due to the fact the Streets of Rage 4 DLC contains new music from Tee Lopes. He’s a composer who has worked on titles like Sonic Mania and Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom.

As you can surmise, the previous boss lady, Estel Aguirre, joins the roster of playable characters. It also looks like two secret brawlers will unlock, as well. In addition, gamers can create their own fighting style with new moves via incoming character customization. New enemies and weapons also appear, including a dead fish! A survival game mode will be added, too.

Because the gaming gods have smiled upon us, Streets of Rage 4 will also net a free update. This will include a New Mania+ difficulty, an in-depth training system, and a variety of color palette options. I’m quite interested in the training, as I’d love to perfect my juggles and combos.

Enthusiasts, will you be checking out all of the additions coming to Streets of Rage 4 later this year? Let us know below!
