When news arrived that SEGA’s classic Streets of Rage – aka Bare Knuckle – brawler series was being revived, there was excitement. Now we have an update.

Set ten years after the events of Mega Drive smash Streets of Rage 3, Mr X’s gangs have united to form the one super mob.

Luckily, players will have a choice of four fighters with which to protect the streets. One remains unannounced, while veterans Axel and Blaze Fielding return. They’re aided (and likely abetted) by axe-wielding newcomer Cherry Hunter. Uh, that’s axe as in “guitar”, BTW. Check her out in the new trailer down the page a bit.

Streets of Rage 4 is looking pretty sweet, and is set for release on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. There’s still no confirmed release date.
