Fancy some more Streets of Rage 4? Then get ready for Streets of Rage 4: Mr X Nightmare, coming later this month.
Mr X Nightmare adds three playable characters to the main game; cop Estel, wrestler Max and martial artist Shiva. We’re not sure how the game will handle Estel and Shiva pummelling themselves to bits but we’ve been dying to play as both.
On top of that, Mr X Nightmare gives you virtual survival mode where you can face off against a wave after wave after wave of characters. There’s an RPG element to the survival mode in that you can upgrade your character between battles, get new stars etc, but your chances of survival could still be slim.
However, the moves you unlock in that mode are carried across to Story Mode so it may well be worth the effort and lost (virtual) teeth. True, Mr X Nightmare doesn’t add any actual story content but it should give you another reason to do another Story Mode run.
Streets of Rage 4: Mr X Nightmare will be available for purchase this July 15th, which is also the date the game (including Mr X Nightmare) arrives on Google Stadia. It’ll be priced at $7.99 which, if you’re a hardcore Streets of Rage 4 fan, could well be worth it.
