Strangely enough, while Streets Of Rage 4 was not featured in Nintendo's recent Indie World Showcase, it has now been thankfully endorsed by DotEmu for the Nintendo Switch. The newly released gameplay trailer above also reveals an intriguing new character named Cherry Hunter, who along with Alex and Blaze knock down the bad guys.
More from the press release:
Cherry Hunter is the daughter of Adam Hunter from the original Streets of Rage.
Cherry was trained by her father and Axel and learned self-defense at a young age. Her interest in following in her father's footsteps and becoming a policewoman soon disappeared, replaced by her love of music. Today, she plays with her electro-progressive rock band at some of the most dangerous places in Wood Oak City. She may look young, but makes no mistake ̵1; she is an experienced veteran of kicking and naming.
The new trailer will reveal several more levels in the coming game at different times of the day: neon-lit urban rooftops, elevator, shabby airport hangars, dirty sewers, booming music stages, and more – sit down and do not look back.
Streets of Rage 4 will be the first entry to the core series in 25 years, when Axel and Blazes gloriously return to serving side-scrolling beatdowns. With lavish hand-drawn animations, new fighting skills, and fresh tracks from an amazing composing team, Streets of Rage 4 will be a masterful homage to classic action fans and their revival.
