If you like playing 2D fighting games like the retro titles’ Double Dragon’ or ‘Battle Toads’ where your task is to roam around a city and beat up multiple opponents at a time, then you should definitely try out Streets of Rage 4. It’s one of those games that want to show the world that it’s not necessary to pack mind-blowing graphics in order to gain success.
The developer Lizardcube recently made the big announcement that Street Rage 4 launches this year on April 30. The title represents a come-back of the game series after 26 years, and it will become available for the usual platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
The Battle Mode takes the cake
The developers were inspired by previous games of the series in order to bring a reliable and fun Battle Mode for Streets of Rage 4. They said in a statement:
“Give a first look at Streets of Rage 4’s Battle Mode, a legacy experience returning from Streets of Rage 2 and 3,”
“This feud-settling battleground is bound to help rivals recognize who truly is Wood Oak City’s finest alley-clearing ruffian, as well as settle grudges spurred by accidental friendly strikes during multiplayer sessions.”
Although Streets of Rage 4 is far from having impressive graphics, the minimum PC requirements are not very low:
- Operating System: Windows 7 of 64-bit
- Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 or AMD Phenom II X4 965
- RAM: 4 GB
- Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 or AMD Radeon HD 6670
- Storage space: 8 GB
It’s a little weird that Streets of Rage 4 will also be available for Windows 7, considering that the operating system has almost three months since it was ruled out of Microsoft’s plans. Considered by many users as being the best operating system ever, Windows 7 is not receiving updates or technical support from the developers anymore.
