1.5 million copies of Dotemu’s Streets of Rage 4 have been sold. To celebrate, the developer has updated the title, and buffed a few of the heroes.
That’s the launch trailer above, not a new look at what’s hitting the game this week. And what’s arriving is fairly significant too, so if you’ve been playing, there’s a good chance you’ll notice the difference.
The patch, which arrives today, includes nearly 80 updates to the core SoR4 experience. Yes, 80. Now, these aren’t just updates, but that number also include bug fixes, and changes to the game’s balancing.
Chiefly among those changes, are buffs to Cherry and Axel. Both have some decent alterations in this patch.
- Specials and start move can interrupt all hitstun states
- Axel has been buffed, with a faster move speed and less recovery on some moves
- Cherry has been buffed, with her flying punch from combos now being fully invincible
“We couldn’t be happier with the reception of Streets of Rage 4. We thank the fans who have supported the game from day one – a lot of the updates in the patch enhance the replay value for folks who have been with us from the start,” Cyrille Imbert, executive producer on Streets of Rage 4, said. “Additional updates are currently in production and we’ll have more to share on that soon.”Cyrille Imbert, executive producer on Streets of Rage 4
