Streets of Rage 4 Mr X Nightmare DLC will have Max Thunder as a playable character

DotEmu has confirmed another detail for the upcoming Streets of Rage 4 DLC Mr X Nightmare, and that detail is that Max Thunder will be a playable character. Max is the second of three confirmed characters for Mr X Nightmare. The first was Estel, the police officer, who is a main boss in the base story of Streets of Rage 4. DotEmu will likely confirm the third playable character soon. My bet is on Shiva, who was Mr X’s right hand man.


The Mr X Nightmare DLC will also add brand new moves to the characters, and players will be able to customise the move sets of the characters to put together an arsenal of moves. The DLC will also add a survival mode which will add different challenges for players to tackle, though not much detail has been given yet. Along with the paid content in Mr X Nightmare there will also be a free update. The free update will add a New Mania+ difficulty, a training mode, and new colour palettes for the characters.

In our review for Streets of Rage 4, I wrote:

Streets of Rage 4 is a must for any beat ‘em up fans, especially those with fond memories of the original trilogy. The fighting is great, the visuals are great, and the soundtrack is great. Lizardcube and Guard Crush have managed to capture the essence of those classic games and upgrade it for the modern age.
