Nintendo’s recent Indie World presentation was packed full of updates and new game announcements, but one of the most prominent games to be shown off during the show was one we already know about- Streets of Rage 4. Happily, it was also a showing that will have warmed the hearts of every fan of the series.
That’s because beloved character Adam Hunter will be returning as a playable character in Streets of Rage 4. This will be the first time since the first game that he will be playable- though he appeared in Streets of Rage 2 and 3, he was a non-playable character. The video announcing his return also showed him in action, of course, and as you’d expect, the game is continuing to look slick.
It’s an unexpected announcement, and one that shows that the developers are going all out as they revive the classic brawler series, and fans will no doubt be ecstatic about Hunter’s return. Take a look at him in action in Streets of Rage 4 below.
Streets of Rage 4 is out for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2020.
