Streets of Rage 4[a] is an upcoming beat 'em up video game being developed by Dotemu, Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games. The game is a continuation of Sega's Streets of Rage series, which was a trilogy of games that released during the early 1990s for the Sega Genesis. The game is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 30, 2020.

Gameplay and premise[edit]
Carrying on the style of gameplay from previous entries in the Streets of Rage series, Streets of Rage 4 is a side-scrolling beat 'em up in which players fight against waves of enemies using an array of attacks and special moves. New to the gameplay formula is the ability to recover health spent using a special attack by performing successive follow-up attacks. Players are also able to juggle opponents against each other and walls for extended combos. Stars can be collected allowing players to perform powerful super moves.[1]

The game takes place 10 years after the events of Streets of Rage 3, featuring returning characters Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding, and Adam Hunter,[2][3] alongside two new characters, Adam’s daughter Cherry, and a muscular human with cybernetically enhanced arms name Floyd Iraia.[4][5] The game will also feature online multiplayer for two players and local multiplayer for up to four players, for the first time in the series, as well as a competitive Battle Mode.[5] Unlockable features include characters from past games, who are presented in 16-bit style, and retro music tracks from Streets of Rage and Streets of Rage 2.[6]

Development[edit]
Rumors of a fourth entry in the Streets of Rage series being in development have circulated since the mid-1990s.[7] Following the success of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, a 2017 remake of 1989's Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, publisher Dotemu and developer Lizardcube approached Sega about creating a sequel in the Streets of Rage series. Sega agreed and production on the game began at the beginning of 2018, with the game publicly announced that August. The game is being co-developed by Guard Crush Games, using a modified engine from their Streets of Fury game.

The soundtrack is being primarily composed by Olivier Deriviere, with additional compositions from Yuzo Koshiro, Motohiro Kawashima, Yoko Shimomura, Keiji Yamagishi, Harumi Fujita, Das Mörtal, and Groundislava.[8][9] The soundtrack is structured so that Deriviere wrote the primary themes, while each boss fight's theme was written by one of the guest composers.[10] Koshiro was not a part of the project from the start, but joined in June 2019 after playing a demo of the game at BitSummit, an indie game showcase in Japan. He cited fan requests and how the game was coming along as reasons for joining.[11] Hideki Naganuma was also originally set to contribute, but dropped out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.[9] He was later replaced by Fujita.[9] The game will also allow players to switch to the soundtracks from Streets of Rage and Streets of Rage 2.[12]

Release[edit]
The game is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 30, 2020.[12] A limited physical release for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions by Limited Run Games will be available as both a standard edition with reversible box art and a classic edition with a steelbook case and a Genesis-style clam-shell case.[13]

PC peasant race checking in. Will this run on my crappy laptop (intel core i3, HD 620 intergrated graphics, 8GB RAM)?

These are the minimum/recommended specs:



I want to see if I can mix it with the mighty GeForce GTS 250! Do I have more terraflops?

I wasn't too keen on the Axel design rework but it grew on me. I know a lot of people aren't pleased with the artstyle but I think it looks very clean. I think a few of the animations could use a little bit more impact though.

Did my perception change or does this look better (both visually and gameplay) than it did when it was first revealed? Did they make some major tweaks?

I’m in.

May I ask you why the tag and with write the tittle in such a manner? If anything sounds rather rude to the game for an OT.

Anyway the price the game here still worries me a bit.

Use this link to replace the Cherry Hunter image from Destructoid under her trailer. The site randomly checks connections so it won't always display.

I'm sure the game won't be offended.


Lol, if thats how you taken you should at least take the time to read and process what mean before typing.
When someone look at the thread tittle, sounds more like a mocking than an OT. Before I entered I wondered if it was really an OT or just a thread to mock the game.

I am relaxed. Its just confusing for an OT. I mean, it has "Esports" as a tag. Makes me wonder if this OT is doing the game any favors or not.

Dude whats wrong with yah? I'm explaining, not exactly demanding to be changed or anything. I'm looking foward for this game as much as anybody, no need to start throwing mockery over the commentary I made about the tittle. You can carry on.

Bad faith?
Dude, you're making up this now.

Edit: Look, I'm not here to derail the thread or start anything. It was just a commentary. I'm not gonna bring this matter any further.

You do you man - not upset or angry here but the way the title is setup is fairly commonly associated with sarcasm or the mocking spongebob meme.
Like so:


I'm still glad someone has made an OT :messenger_grinning:

Like I said, you do you and thanks for the thread. I only posted about it because it looked like there was a bit of a misunderstanding between you & Saber :)


Fingers crossed for a good UK price - they only seem to have a price for USA AFAICT ($24.99).
The intro music to the first is forever burned into my brain, even if it was only the Master System port.

Unfortunatelly prices aren't favoring my country at this time. This game is going to be a little salty for me.

Huh? The thread title to me looks like it was meant to represent out of control emotion... Like, I don't know, RAGE maybe? It's actually very apt and it did a good job of catching my eye. The last thing that came to my mind was rudeness.

Anyway, great job Tesseract Tesseract . The title is perfect. Don't change a gat dang thing.

I was a little cold on this at the reveal of the artstlye but it looks like a lot of love went into this and it's grown on me significantly. Reminds me of 80's cartoons and that's a really good thing. I'll def check this out if I get a chance. The only time I've ever played streets of Rage was in the arcades. Some great memories.

I couldn't really appreciate the OP on mobile as the gifs were messed up.

This is probably my favourite SOR gif of all time.


I might actually do some online that isn't Dark Souls co-op for this one. GAF of Rage? Streets of GAF?

Very hyped! But afraid to see which price SOR4 will have on my country with all this economic holocaust.
