DotEmu has confirmed the return of another character for Streets of Rage 4 as it revealed that Adam Hunter would be available in the roster after he is unlocked in story mode. Adam was only a playable character in the first Streets of Rage while being an NPC in the rest of the original trilogy. So, this marks the first time in almost 29 years that Adam makes his fighting return.

That’s not to take away from what Streets of Rage 4 is. A classic beat ‘em up in a modern skin might just be the simple, brain-massaging fun we need right now, and it’s legitimately as close to the originals as it’s possible to be. The Mega Drive Classic’s inclusion of Streets of Rage II has placed the series firmly back in the modern consciousness – well, mine at least – and with Dotemu, Lizardcube and Guard Crush at the helm you can be certain that at the very least Streets of Rage 4 will be a gorgeous, retro-infused electro-pop smackdown of the highest order.
Streets of Rage 4 will be released for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.
