Streets of Rage 4 is a direct continuation of Sega’s arcade brawler series, featuring Axel and Blaze as the playable characters, once again. It will feature sport hand-drawn visuals from Lizardcube, alongside new gameplay mechanics, solo and co-op play, new stages, and an original story. It will also introduce some new mechanics while staying true to its classic arcade roots. And, yes, there will be some form of co-op.
There’s no word yet on platforms, price, or release date for Streets of Rage 4.
