Streets of Rage 4 DLC Adds New Fighters to the Fray Later This Year

The paid Streets of Rage 4 DLC adds three new fighters and a new mode, but there's a free Streets of Rage update coming as well.

Streets of Rage 4 has sold more than 2.5 million copies since releasing in April 2020, and coinciding with that milestone, Dotemu announced a new Streets of Rage 4 DLC, Mr. X Nightmare. Mr. X Nightmare is a paid DLC pack with new characters and a new mode, though there's a free update coming later in 2021 as well.

There's currently no release date or price for the Streets of Rage 4 DLC.

Estel Aguirre is the first of three new fighters. It's also the first time the former boss character will bring her signature powerhouse kicks and punches to bear on the right side, but those aren't the only new moves Streets of Rage 4's DLC has in store.

Players can add new movesets to their characters as part of Mr. X Nightmare's new Survival mode and make use of new weapons and gear. Survival mode is a series of challenges designed to push your skills to the limits, though more details will be shared at a later date.

That's the paid Streets of Rage 4 DLC. There's also a free update adding New Mania+ difficulty, new color palettes, and an in-depth training mode.

We'll take any excuse to return to Streets of Rage 4, a game we called "the best kind of revival."

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
