Dotemu has announced that Streets of Rage 4’s upcoming Mr. X Nightmare DLC will be arriving on Xbox on 15th July 2021, and we’ve got a lovely release date trailer to check out too.
Priced at $7.99, the Mr X. Nightmare DLC adds plenty of new content, including the newly details Survival Mode, which can be seen in action in the new trailer. In Survival Mode, players enter the simulation, where they’ll have to beat down endless waves of enemies, earning perks along the way to power up. Random mode is meant to be endlessly playable, with each fight made unpredictable through generation, while the Weekly mode offers up a series of static gauntlets generated each week.
Once you complete a level in Survival Mode, you get two randomised perks to pick from, with each bonus stacking with previous ones to morph your fighter with unusual powers. On top of that, taking on Survival Mode will unlock new moves for each character, which can then be used in any other mode in Streets of Rage 4.
On top of Survival Mode, Streets of Rage 4’s Mr. X Nightmare DLC adds new playable characters and weapons, while a separate free update will add in a training mode, New Mania+ difficulty, balance changes, and colour palette options.
Streets of Rage 4: Mr. X Nightmare DLC arrives on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 15th July 2021.
