Streets of Rage 4 is set to receive a whole lot of new content in the future that is most notably bolstered by three new playable characters in the game's first piece of DLC that is entitled "Mr. X Nightmare". Although it's not slated to release until later on in 2021, it should prove to add a whole lot more replayability for those who are looking for more out of one of last year's most popular retro games.
Detailed by developer Dotemu today, Streets of Rage 4 is going to be receiving a litany of new add-ons that will include a new game mode, new weapons and attacks, all-new music, and the aforementioned new fighters that will be playable. One of these three new characters will be that of Estel Aguirre, which previously appeared in the game as a boss-like enemy. At this point in time, Dotemu isn't saying who the other two combatants will be, but a tease at their identity has been included in the reveal trailer which you can find in the tweet below.

While this new DLC will (of course) cost a bit of money, Dotemu is also going out of its way to ensure that all Streets of Rage 4 fans can have something new to look forward to this year for no charge at all. Alongside the release of the Mr. X Nightmare DLC, a new update will also be pushed out as well. This patch will add an all-new difficulty, training mode, and additional skins for existing characters, among other additions.
As briefly mentioned, at this point in time, a release date for the Mr. X Nightmare DLC in Streets of Rage 4 hasn't been unveiled just yet. However, the new content will be coming to all of the game's platforms, which includes PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
