Co-developers Dotemu (Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap), Lizardcube (Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap) and Guard Crush Games (Streets of Fury) have confirmed Streets of Rage 4 for Xbox One.
Platforms were originally unconfirmed when the game was first announced several months ago, so this news will delight Xbox owners, with Streets of Rage 4 being the first entry to the core series in 25 years.
Coming to the fight will also a new character – a badass guitar-playing warrior named Cherry Hunter. Cherry is the daughter of Adam Hunter from the original Streets of Rage. Trained by her father and Axel, Cherry learned self-defense from a young age. Her interest in following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a cop soon faded out, replaced by her love of music. Nowadays, she plays with her electro progressive rock band in some of the most dangerous places.
The new trailer also reveals several more level backdrops at different times of day: neon lit urban rooftops, elevator, seedy airport hangars, dirty sewers, a thumping music stage and many more.
