Streets of Rage 4 gets Mr. X Nightmare DLC and free update on 15 July, new details and trailer

We bring you a new video of one of the most prominent games of the moment for Nintendo Switch users, which has recently been published on YouTube. It’s Streets of Rage 4.

In the trailer, we can see some scenes focusing on its upcoming DLC. This includes three new characters and a new survival mode. On the other hand, remember that a free update with a new difficulty level will also be released. The Mr. X Nightmare DLC will be released on July 15 for $7.99 and the free update will be available on the same date.

The video focuses on Survival Mode, “an inventive and immensely replayable challenge for Streets of Rage 4’s most versatile fighters”. It’s below, along with the official description of this content:

Play as Shiva, the charismatic Kenpō master whose time has come. Ready to leave the Syndicate for good, Axel Stone’s former rival is now determined to make a difference in Mr. X Nightmare.

Mr. X Nightmare

Estel Aguirre, one of “the three fighters included in X Nightmare”, as he goes off duty to join forces with the heroes of Streets of Rage 4 for the first time. Previously appearing in the game as an intimidating boss fight-style foe, Estel’s powerful spinning kicks inflict serious damage on anyone foolish enough to get in her way. Witness Estel in action and discover a hint about the other two characters in the DLC that have yet to be revealed.

The DLC also features a unique Survival Mode, which challenges players to elevate and prove their true abilities through special tests of skill; more details on the design and gameplay of this mode will be shared soon. Players can also build their own personalised fighting style with new moves through character customisation, while additional weapons and enemies are sure to keep the battles interesting ahead. This content includes lively new original music from Tee Lopes, a composer and arranger who previously appeared in Sonic Mania, League of Legends and Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, among other titles.

Free update

Elsewhere, the free update brings a brutal challenge to the most formidable Streets of Rage 4 players via the “New Mania +” difficulty. An in-depth training system is coming to help fighters perfect their strategies and alley-clearing combinations, and new colour palette options keep Wood Oak City’s most dangerous fighters looking interesting.
