Streets of Rage 4: Mr. X Nightmare DLC Gets New Gameplay Trailer

Watch Max, Estella, and Shiva clean house in the latest Mr. X Nightmare DLC trailer from Summer Game Fest.


Dotemu has released a new gameplay trailer for Streets of Rage 4’s upcoming Mr. X Nightmare DLC, offering a deep dive into the beat ’em up’s three new playable characters.

The trailer clocks in at just over eight minutes long. In it, we get a look at Shiva, Max, and Estelle’s varied movesets as they pummel thugs in their respective stages from the original SoR4. Mr. X’s former bodyguard Shiva mixes speed and martial arts prowess to beat down waves of enemies in his dojo, Max unleashes his wrestling might to bodyslam, elbow drop, and drop kick syndicate goons, and Special Forces officer Estelle utilizes a combination of nasty grapples and ground pounds to enforce her own brand of justice.

You can watch this fearsome threesome in action in the trailer below courtesy of IGN.

Dotemu, Guard Crush Games, and Lizardcube have yet to announce a release date for the DLC. However, with E3 kicking off today, we probably won’t have to wait too much longer to learn when it’s coming out.

Streets of Rage 4 is now available for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. I gave the game a near-perfect score in my review last year, describing it as the “gold standard for what a beat ’em up should be and a triumphant return to form for the series.”

So, which of the DLC’s new characters are you most excited to try out? As a big fan of Max Thunder (he was my go-to in Streets of Rage 2), I’m dying to suplex some syndicate punks. We love to hear what you think. Be sure to let us know in the comments down below.
