“Streets of Rage 4” to feature 12 throwback characters, original soundtracks

Rejoice! The upcoming brawler revival Streets of Rage 4 will now feature four ways to play as Blaze Fielding!

How? Because SoR4 developer Lizardcube has announced that the latest installment of SEGA’s classic series will include 12 unlockable pixel-art versions of characters from previous Streets of Rage game, bringing the game’s full roster to 17 characters. Almost all of the old characters from previous SoR games are confirmed to be back, with the exception of the hidden character Roo. Each comes with their own original animations and movesets, with the Streets of Rage 1 cast bringing their bazooka-toting police partners along, too.

Here’s the list of returning characters:

Streets of Rage

  • Adam Hunter
  • Axel Stone
  • Blaze Fielding

Streets of Rage 2

  • Axel Stone
  • Blaze Fielding
  • Skate/Eddie/Sammy Hunter
  • Max “Thunder” Hatchett

Streets of Rage 3

  • Axel Stone*
  • Blaze Fielding*
  • Skate/Eddie/Sammy Hunter
  • Dr. Gilbert Zan
  • Shiva

*It looks as though Axel and Blaze are sporting their original outfits from the Japanese version of SoR3, not the altered U.S. outfits. (SEGA of America put Blaze Fielding in gray? Criminal)

In addition, Streets of Rage 4 will also include Yuzo Koshiro’s celebrated soundtracks from both Streets of Rage 1 and 2 on the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive. Why is SoR3‘s soundtrack not included? Because it sucked, of course (…probably).

Behold, the latest trailer!

Streets of Rage 4 is coming soon to PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch for $24.99.
