Publisher and developer Dotemu, and developers Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games have announced the release date for Streets Of Rage 4‘s “Mr. X Nightmare” DLC.
The DLC will release on July 15th 2021, and will add three new playable characters to the game as well as a new “Survival Mode”. It will also cooincide with a separate free update that adds a number of additional features. Furthermore, a new physical edition with all the DLC included has also been announced for release on September 28th.
You can check out a new trailer below, along with additional details via Dotemu:
“Mr. X Nightmare”‘s Survival mode is an inventive, immensely replayable challenge for Streets of Rage 4‘s most versatile brawlers. Fighters beat down endless waves of foes and earn perks for as long as they can stay alive across two session variations: Random, which keeps each fight unpredictable through generated runs; and Weekly, a series of static gauntlets generated each week.
Each completed level offers two randomized perks to choose from, granting stackable bonuses to power up combatants in unique and devastating ways until they’re defeated. Braving Survival’s onslaughts also permanently unlocks new moves for use across any of Streets of Rage 4‘s modes, allowing players to personalize movelists for their favorite characters. Progress unlocks devastating new weapons within both Survival mode and an incoming training mode, as well as gallery content. The mode’s leaderboards keep track of the community’s well-fought runs too; who will be Wood Oak City’s finest fighter?
“Mr. X Nightmare” bundles the above with the playable debut of Estel Aguirre, fully realized playable versions of Max Thunder and Shiva, and grooving original music from Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania, League of Legends). A separate free update adding an in-depth training system, color palette options, a fiendish New Mania+ difficulty, plus a wealth of refinements and balancing changes addressing feedback from Streets of Rage 4‘s passionate community, also arrives on July 15.
