Dotemu has today revealed on which platforms players will be able to play Streets of Rage 4, the first game in the sidescrolling beat ’em up series for 25 years. The game will be available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. A release date hasn’t been confirmed yet but there was a new revelation. That revelation comes in the form of new character Cherry Hunter, daughter of original fighter Adam Hunter. She’s been trained to fight by Axel and her father and now has to put that training to the test.
Along with the new character new locations were shown including rooftops, sewers, airport hangars, and an elevator. In a recent interview with us DotEmu CEO Cyrille Imbert said about the game:
“We need to keep what’s the best from the originals, and that could be anything from gameplay to story to different aspects of the games, but we need to keep what makes the game great, and modify or improve those that were not so great, or just OK. There is a legacy, we’re not just erasing that…
We don’t want to change everything. What makes Streets of Rage charming is that the story is very simple, straightforward; it’s bad-ass ex-cops beating the crime organisation of the city. That won’t change much! There will be some twists, there’ll be some different ways of telling the story to players, some modern ways of doing it. It will be the same, but different!”
