Dotemu, Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games have released a new trailer for Streets of Rage 4 that explores the upcoming game’s art direction.
This sees Lizardcube art and creative director Ben Fiquet and lead background artist Julian Nguyen You talk about the bustling city that they have created using “a bold style emphasising linework and movement.”
With hand-drawn visuals from the team behind Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap remake, the co-developers have looked to build on the cult classic trilogy’s gameplay “with new mechanics, a fresh story and a gauntlet of dangerous stages with a serious crime problem.”
You can either clean up the city on your own or team up with a friend to beat up the gangsters, in what is promised to be “a skull-bashing, chicken-chomping delight all set to a thumping soundtrack sure to get your blood pumping.”
Streets of Rage 4 will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in the first half of 2020.
