Dotemu and Lizardcube, the teams behind the upcoming Streets of Rage 4, have shared a brand new trailer showing off some exciting co-op reveals and even the final playable character. Ooer.
Let's kick things off with this co-op news. The new game will support two-player co-op online, and for the first time in the series, up to four players can team up in local play when it launches this spring. You can see this in action in the video above.
The new and final character is Floyd, who's set to dish out some serious damage with his incredibly strong cybernetic arms. Although Floyd’s movement and health recovery are slower than most, he boasts the longest reach among the playable roster and an awful lot of power, ensuring any combo he puts an enemy through will be devastating.
Before we go, we'll leave you with this recap of what the game's all about - as well as a reminder to check out the gorgeous art and gameplay footage shared recently:
Streets of Rage 4 reunites Axel, Blaze, and Adam for the first mainline Streets of Rage game in more than 25 years. The highly anticipated sequel embodies the classic trilogy’s gritty, neon-streaked urban atmosphere in a fully original experience boasting a strikingly fluid hand-drawn art style. New skull-cracking playable characters, expanded combat abilities, and a pulsing soundtrack from an all-star lineup including series composers Yūzō Koshiro (Streets of Rage 1, 2, & 3, Sonic the Hedgehog) and Motohiro Kawashima (Streets of Rage 2 & 3, Shinobi II) make Streets of Rage 4 an all-out brawl of a lifetime.
Excited for this one? Let us know if you'll be teaming up with your friends with a comment below.
This is a MUST buy for me! Anyone know the release date?
Like being in the 90s again.....that music is sublime!!
Seems like Floyd is the new max. That's cool i guess, I was hoping max would make the cut but this will do. Pretty excited about this and the ability to play online.
Adam was my favorite from Streets of Rage 1, very happy he's back. I'm definitely interested in Floyd's playstyle, energy blasts seem fun.
I'm hopeful we'll get more fighters as DLC. Getting Skate and Roo back would be fun.
I can't wait! The new character is really cool.
Initially, the art style of this game turned me off to it but I must say 4 player local co-op has got me interested again. I usually buy anything that lets me game with with more than one that person at a time locally. I love gaming with my kids so those sorts of games always move up the list.
Was interested in this but 4 player coop puts it over the edge! Definitely going to pick this up just gotta choose which version, great news!
No Asian representation? You had 4 characters and went 2&2? For shame.
This is amazing. Shame adulthood has stripped me of game playing friends... I will tackle this by myself or with my wife.
The new char is more like overkill to the enemy
@TimboSlice Maybe next time.
OK, now it's time to set a release date and confirm what should be: a physical version, and not super rare strictly limited, but available for everyone to buy in normal stores.
So, online 2-player...4-player co-op..but not two player/three-player local co-op? Really? Or am I missing something, and can just select only 2 or 3 players?
I’m throwing money at the screen but nothing’s happening!
... yeah, that will be annoying by the 1000thtime or so...
Always greedy.... Can I get battletoads as well.
I am a bit disappointed by Skate not being here, but only a little bit. I am excited for this game, was a huge fan of the series on Genesis. Looking forward to having this one on release, whenever that may be. I am happy the original trio are back, and I like the look of the two new characters.
@Aljebra UP to 4 player local meaning 2 or 3 would still be an option
The art is improving. There are still missing faces on characters, oversized feet, disjointed looking limbs and poor animation. I think they sorted Axels beer gut, that's a real improvement.
@Rexenokid It's great to see Jax with his METAL ARMS once again.
Jax here he comes. Gatcha ya!
Four is the magic number.
The game was already a must buy for me, but the four-player co-op makes it Day One.
@TimboSlice Samoan doesn't count?
...so the pricetag and release date then ?
You know actual SUBSTANTIAL information ?
Happy to see non Jax from mortal Kombat make the roster of this little known indie gem.
Online play... yes!!!
2 player online co-op? Sweet! I hope we can join random people and drop-in on a game in progress.
It's a little deceptive crediting Yuzo Koshiro for Sonic the Hedgehog. He did the 8-bit version for Master System and Game Gear. Still great music, but likely not the game that most would think of.
Finally the '4' in Streets of Rage 4 makes sense, not only is it the fourth entry in the series but also featured 4-player co-op play in stunning 4K that you can play on PS4 and on the go for Nintendo's 4th successful home console, the Switch.
too bad we can't do 2 player local and two online at once... but, hey, a feasts a feast!
No Max at all? Saddening, I like him more than Alex...
@Beermonkey Haha, that sounds familiar to me! I played through Sengoku 3 a while back with my wife. It would have been fun if it weren't for the fact that she kept saying "Why are we doing this? Are we near the end of the game yet?".
@BionicDodo Played snipper clippers recently with my wife. Meant to be a fun co op experience. Surprised we didn't divorce! Streets of Rage 4 could be interesting!
Game looks great but I just don't like the art style no matter how hard I try.
@Shiryu It was starting to stand out, and not in a good way, after I heard it the third time...
...but that synth saves all. That was beautiful, and I'll be watching the trailer over and over just to listen to it.
It'll be interesting to see which platform this sells best on, provided it reviews well.
Physical copy please!!!!
Looks and sounds excellent! Looking forward to giving this a go once released!
@TimboSlice Streets of Rage is Asian.
Very exciting news, really looking forward to playing this with my cousins!🙌🏼
They should make an arcade cabinet out of it first...just for marketing purposes
might be better if it has unlockable/hidden characters like SOR3 had or the amazing fan made game
Looking reeeeaaal slick there, Lizard Cube!
Where did all of the nayesayers run off to? 😁
Also ran, Iraia is a female Basque given name, but apparently also means “The God Wrestler” in Hebrew. Can anybody confirm this?
Haha in had exactly the same!!
Got ya! I was saying hey jax!!
Man i need this game!!
Local and online play.
Is there a release date? I cant find it lol.
Is the policeman with the shield at 00:16 a secret playable character? He appears to be fighting against the enemies.
@retro_player_22 If you want to say the Switch is Nintendo's 4th industry-leading home console, that's true, but claiming the N64 and GameCube weren't successful just isn't accurate and rather insulting.
