Just announced today by publisher and co-developer Dotemu and co-developers Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games is Streets of Rage 4 - Mr. X Nightmare, a paid DLC taking place after the events of Streets of Rage 4 that will include 3 new playable characters, a survival mode with weekly challenges, character customization, and new weapons and enemies. The DLC will be arriving later this year, which makes sense considering Streets of Rage 4 has more than 2.5 million copies downloaded, making it a pretty big hit.
The announcement trailer posted directly below showcases officer Estel Aguire, who is one of Mr. X Nightmare's included fighters. For the first time she'll be going off duty and joining the fighters for the first time, which is quite the difference from her previous appearance, which was as a boss fight-style foe. Estel has powerful spin dicks and slugs, which will hit pretty hard for anyone foolish enough to get in her way.
The other two DLC characters have not been revealed yet either, so you'll have to stay tuned on that front as the year progresses and more is revealed about the DLC. What's already revealed though is the Survival mode, which will challenge players to get better and prove themselves through tests of skill. The aforementioned customization will give players a chance to building their own fighting style as they do this.
There is a free update coming with this DLC that will give hardcore players a bigger challenge in New Mania+. There's also a new in-depth training system that will help players perfect their combos and strategies as they kick ass and chew bubblegum.
For more information on Streets of Rage 4's DLC coming later this year for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, be sure to stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details. In the meantime you can also wishlist it here on Steam if you want to check it out further.
