Yes, Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games have officially unveiled a ‘Mr. X Nightmare DLC pack for the game. It adds new playable characters and a special Survival game mode, and even more content is also on the way in a separate free update.
The new trailer (above) focuses on one of the three new characters coming to the game, Estel Aguirre, while providing a quick look at other stars not yet announced. Formerly appearing in the game as a boss fight style foe, Estel’s powerful slugs and spin kickers “deal serious damage to anyone who is stupid enough to get in his way.”
The new Survival mode is still a bit of a secret, but we know it will “challenge players to raise and prove their true abilities through special skill checks.” Players will also be able to create their own personalized fighting style with a new character customization tool, and additional weapons, moves and enemies are also in the works.
Finally, the free update mentioned above is designed for the best Streets of Rage 4 players. The update will add a “New Mania +” difficulty that is supposed to be a “brutal” challenge, although there is also a new training system designed to help you perfect your strategies.
No dates or prices have been revealed for the DLC yet, so we’ll be sure to stay tuned for more in the coming weeks. In the meantime, let us know if you’re feeling excited for more Streets of Rage in the comments below.
