DotEmu revealed today that Streets of Rage 4 will be coming next year to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. In addition, the publisher and co-developer also revealed a new character coming to the game, and a brand new trailer.
The new character coming to Streets of Rage 4 is Cherry Hunter, the daughter of Adam hunter from the original Streets of Rage. Here’s an overview of Cherry, via DotEmu:
Cherry Hunter is the daughter of Adam Hunter from the original Streets of Rage.
Trained by her father and Axel, Cherry learned self-defense from a young age. Her interest in following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a cop soon faded out, replaced by her love of music. Nowadays, she plays with her electro progressive rock band in some of the most dangerous places in Wood Oak City. She may look young but make no mistake – she is a seasoned veteran of kicking ass and taking names.
A new trailer has been released as well, showing several more levels in the upcoming game at different times of day: neon lighted urban rofftops, elevator, seedy airport hangers, dirty sewers, thumping music stage and many more.
According to its publisher, Streets of Rage 4 will be the first entry to the core series in 25 years, standing as Axel and Blaze’s glorious return to serving up side-scrolling beatdowns. With lush hand-drawn animations, new combat abilities, and fresh tracks from an amazing team of composers, Streets of Rage 4 will be a masterful tribute to and revitalization of the classic action fans adore.
More will be revealed as the game will be shown at Gamescom 2019 this week. Stay tuned for our coverage this week, especially when it comes out later this year. For fans of the Streets of Rage series, definitely look forward to this title soon.
