The three groups behind Streets of Rage 4, namely Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games recently did an AMA on Reddit. Fans were able to ask questions that they’ve always wanted to know the answers to. One such question was about whether or not the game will be getting a DLC.
Fortunately, the CEO and executive producer of Dotemu Cyrille Imbert decided to answer this one and the answer is yes. Sadly, there’s no estimated timeframe yet as to when, but they definitely want to release new content for Streets of Rage 4.
Lead programmer of Guard Crush Games Cyrille Lagarigue also added on the AMA that they are currently considering adding new playable characters, but there hasn’t been a decision as to this just yet. A fan also asked about the possibility of a sequel and Imbert replied with:
“We haven’t discussed it yet but we’d like to first focus on SoR4 and continue to add content. But at Dotemu we are currently working on three unanounced similar projects, so stay tuned ;)”
Streets of Rage 4 was released in April 2020 for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch after how many years of waiting. This sequel to Streets of Rage 2 and Streets of Rage 3 brought back Battle Mode, which is a legacy in this franchise.
Battle Mode is what makes the game different from the typical brawler games, as it allows you to play in versus or team mode. As such, it turns the game into more of a competitive fighting title.
We’re super excited to see what the developers have planned for Streets of Rage 4. Whatever the new content will be, we’re sure to love it!
