Streets of Rage 4 developer Lizardcube and publisher Dotemu confirmed that additional DLC is on its way for the beat-em-up revival, during a Reddit AMA. However, the destiny is still unguaranteed.
The developers at Dotemu have many ideas as to what to add to the game. More info on “what” and “when” will be released soon, but for now, they are also listening to what fans want.
A balancing patch is currently in the works. Axel will be made more substantial. The development team is also still working on bug fixing and online optimization, but it will take some time, as it is hard to reproduce online bugs.
Sales and reviews have exceeded Dotemu’s expectations.
When asked whether sequels might be discussed, or whether this game is a one-off revival, Dotemu answered that for now, it would continue to develop and add content to Streets of Rage 4.
That said, there are three other projects at Dotemu still unannounced, developed by other teams.
Streets of Rage 4 is currently available on the PC, the PlayStation4, the Nintendo Switch, and the Xbox One. You can check its gameplay trailer down below.
