Players will have to wait just a little bit longer to get play the newest entry in the Streets of Rage series.
Fans of the Streets of Rage series are eager to learn when they can fight back the evil syndicate and make the streets safe again. Streets of Rage 4 won’t be released until 2020, but the hype for it is real.
Streets of Rage 4 2020
The developers LizardCube and Guard Crush Games, along with publisher Dotemu, have been hard at work to bring Streets of Rage 4 to life. Guide Stash was able to get hands-on with this much-anticipated sequel and learned quite a bit about what players can expect.
Streets of Rage 4 is heavily inspired by Streets of Rage 2 and this can be found through level design and even character gameplay. Getting hands-on with series favorite Axel Stone and newcomer Cherry Hunter shows the dynamics of different play styles.
Character Play Style
Axel is a character who relies more on his fighting skills to go head-on, while Cherry is a more agile character that is best used to move around the enemy. No confirmation has been given whether characters from Streets of Rage 2 or Streets of Rage 3 will eventually be playable, but one character that is returning is Mr. X’s right-hand man Shiva who is pitted against our heroes.
Shiva has been a staple to the Streets of Rage Series since Streets of Rage 2 and has been a thorn in the side of Axel and Blaze. A fourth playable character is set to be announced who is rumored to be the strongest of all the characters.
More information about Streets of Rage 4 will be announced in the coming year with a release date in 2020. When these further details are available, Guide Stash will report on it. Streets of Rage 4 will be released on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
