The Streets of Rage 4 release date for PlayStation 4 has been officially announced, as publisher Dotemu has confirmed that Streets of Rage 4 will release on April 30, 2020 and will retail for $24.99. In addition, Dotemu has also announced the return of the legacy Battle Mode, too.
In case you missed the earlier news, Streets of Rage 4 will allow players to enable a retro visual veneer which whisks the whole experience back to the 16-bit pixels of old.
Additionally, Streets of Rage 4 is also set to have a super swanky physical release thanks to Limited Run Games, while it was also announced that Streets of Rage 4 will support 4 player co-op play, both locally and via the miracle of online multiplayer.
Elsewhere, the full Streets of Rage 4 trophy list has also been leaked – providing some neat insight into the various levels and enemies that you’ll fight during the course of the game. Beware though – the list is full of spoilers.
