Update: The official word we have from DotEmu is that the “date is not final or confirmed”. It’s unclear if the game will be launching this month as listed on the eShop. DotEmu says it’ll be “soon”, however.


Original: Streets of Rage 4 will launch on Switch this month, according to an eShop listing. The game just received a store page showing a release date of April 23. We previously heard that it would arrive sometime this spring.

Here’s an overview of Streets of Rage 4, along with a trailer:

Publisher and co-developer Dotemu, along with co-developers Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games, have shared new information about the music of Streets of Rage 4. Olivier Derivière, who handled soundtracks for A Plague Tale: Innocence, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Dying Light 2, and more, is serving as the game’s main composer. Other guest musicians are contributing as well.

Here’s some additional information about the soundtrack, including news that Hideki Naganuma will no longer be contributing because of “scheduling complications”:

Streets of Rage 4 is getting a physical release thanks to Limited Run Games. Announced on their official Twitter page, Limited Run says that the upcoming game will be added to their collection and to stay tuned for more details. Check out the full tweet below.
 


Streets of Rage 4 is releasing on Switch sometime in 2020. 

SEGA’s classic Streets of Rage series is seeing a revival with Streets of Rage 4, Lizardcube, Guard Crush Games and Dotemu have announced. A release date and platforms have not been confirmed as of yet.

Typically we hold off on news about brand new titles unless we receive confirmation about it being bound for a Nintendo system. However, given the companies involved here, we do believe a Switch release will happen. This game comes from Dotemu and Lizardcube – the publisher and developer of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap respectively. Considering how well that title did on the eShop, it seems certain that Streets of Rage 4 will be on Switch.
