The successful return of a classic. The new installment of one of the most successful ‘me against the neighborhood’ sagas in history has taken place with a video game that respects the legacy of the original and that uses current technology to create an experience with a retro aroma, but with tact contemporary.

In addition, they have taken the opportunity to announce all the news of the new patch.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Streets of Rage 4,” said Cyrille Imbert, CEO of DotEmu. “We thank the fans who have supported us with the game since day one – many of the updates and improvements in the patch improve the replayability value for all those who have been with us from the beginning.” According to the manager, they have another series of content in production, which will be reported shortly.
