Streets of Rage 4 publisher and co-developer Dotemu (publisher Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, developer Windjammers) with co-developers Lizardcube (Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap) and Guard Crush Games (Streets of Fury) today announced the iconic series’ return will support two-player online and up to four-player offline co-op when it launches this spring. A new trailer released today also revealed a first look at the final and all-new playable character joining the roster ahead of Streets of Rage 4’s upcoming release on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The four-player co-op and new character will be playable for fans attending PAX East in Boston, February 27 through March 1st on the show floor in booth 28051.
The new character, Floyd, dishes out serious damage with his incredibly strong cybernetic arms, a cutting-edge upgrade courtesy of Streets of Rage 3’s playable cyborg, Dr. Zan. Although Floyd’s movement and health recovery are slower than most, he boasts the longest reach among the playable roster and tremendous power, ensuring any combo he puts an enemy through will be devastating.

Streets of Rage 4 reunites Axel, Blaze, and Adam for the first mainline Streets of Rage game in more than 25 years. The highly anticipated sequel embodies the classic trilogy’s gritty, neon-streaked urban atmosphere in a fully original experience boasting a strikingly fluid hand-drawn art style. New skull-cracking playable characters, expanded combat abilities, and a pulsing soundtrack from an all-star lineup including series composers Yūzō Koshiro (Streets of Rage 1, 2, & 3, Sonic the Hedgehog) and Motohiro Kawashima (Streets of Rage 2 & 3, Shinobi II) make Streets of Rage 4 an all-out brawl of a lifetime.
