Developed in partnership with studios Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games, Streets of Rage 4 is the first new entry in the series, which first appeared on the Sega Genesis, to be released in 26 years. The game marks the return of ex-cops Adam Hunter, Axel Stone, and Blaze Fielding, who are now joined by Adam’s daughter Cherry, as they once again take the fight to the evil forces of the Syndicate. Veteran series composers Yuzo Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima will be providing the soundtrack alongside celebrated Super Mario RPG and Street Fighter II composer Yoko Shimomura, Jet Set Radio composer Hideki Naganuma, and Ninja Gaiden composer Keiji Yamagishi.
Streets of Rage 4 is slated to release later this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. Stay tuned for more details on this hugely anticipated brawler as they become available.
