Streets of Rage 4 is getting new characters and a new game mode in an upcoming paid DLC.

Co-developers Dotemu, Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games announced the new Mr X. Nightmare DLC earlier today. Three new characters are coming, one of them being boss character Estel Aguirre. The other two were left as a mystery, though apparently hints lie throughout the reveal trailer as to who they may be. The paid DLC also includes a new survival mode, the details of which are yet to be revealed, as well as a character customisation mode allowing for unique play styles and movesets.

There are also some free goodies coming in the form of a New Mania+ difficulty, training modes, and new colour palette options for fighters. There's no word on when exactly the DLC and free update are arriving yet, outside of the vague window of "later this year." 

Wes gave the game a decent score of 76 when he checked it out, calling it "a beautiful brawler with just enough depth to stay engaging through multiple runs."

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
