Streets of Rage 4 sees the return of Adam Hunter


Brace Yourself

Cleaning the streets of scum is all in a day's work for ex-cops Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding, having done it time and again since the early '90s. But, never forget that this intrepid duo was once a threesome, and, for the first time (officially) since 1991, Streets of Rage' trinity of heroes are reunited.

A new trailer, courtesy of co-developers DotEmu, Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games, reveals the fourth protagonist in the awesome looking Streets of Rage 4, and it's none other than original hero Adam Hunter, making his playable return for the first time (officially) since the original Streets of Rage Sega Genesis release.

Clad in his classic yellow shirt, but sporting an all-new quiff and suspenders combo, Adam will fight alongside buddies Blaze and Axel, as well as his hard rockin' daughter Cherry (though there's no sign of his oh-so-'90s kid brother, Skate). The new video shows Adam using his fists of stone to lay out waves of hapless punks. The Streets of Rage 4 "group shot" still has one more silhouette, so it seems our cast is nearing completion.

With each video, I get more excited about this title. Without a shadow of a doubt, Streets of Rage 4 is my most anticipated game of 2020... assuming we get it in 2020! Still, without a release date, Streets of Rage 4 is in development for PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
