Streets of Rage 4 DLC listing pops up on Steam database

But how much longer can Axel’s knees hold out?

Great news for Streets of Rage 4 fans, as a new listing for previously unannounced DLC has popped up on the Steam store database (Steamdb). As spotted by Redditor MikeSaintJules, the mystery entry is titled “Mr. X Nightmare” – a reference to the Big Bad of the original Streets of Rage trilogy back in the halcyon days of the Sega Mega Drive.

There are no further details pertaining to this particular DLC drop, including a content explanation or a release date, but co-developers Dotemu has previously noted its intent to release new content for the fantastic 2D brawler, while asking fans to be patient in the meantime. After all, Streets of Rage 4 did take a helluva long time to see release. But boy howdy, it was worth the wait.

It goes without saying that I’m very much up for more SoR 4 action. In particular I’m hoping for the playable launch of cop-turned-vigilante Estel Aguirre, who was most definitely one of the highlights of the long-long-long-awaited sequel. For now, just tape up your fists and keep sitting pretty. The streets will come a-callin’ when the time is right.
