Fans looking forward to playing Streets of Rage 4 next year will be able to do so on their platform of choice as publisher and co-developer Dotemu (Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, Windjammers 1 and 2) with co-developers Lizardcube (Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap) and Guard Crush Games (Streets of Fury) today announced that the title will make its way on to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

A brand new gameplay trailer released today also introduced the latest character to join Blaze Fielding and Axel Stone: a badass guitar-playing warrior named Cherry Hunter.

Trailer: https://youtu.be/LTZajRoULlQ

Cherry Hunter is the daughter of Adam Hunter from the original Streets of Rage.

Trained by her father and Axel, Cherry learned self-defense from a young age. Her interest in following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a cop soon faded out, replaced by her love of music. Nowadays, she plays with her electro progressive rock band in some of the most dangerous places in Wood Oak City. She may look young but make no mistake – she is a seasoned veteran of kicking ass and taking names.

The new trailer also reveals several more levels in the upcoming game at different times of day: neon lighted urban rooftops, elevator, seedy airport hangars, dirty sewers, thumping music stage and many more are all yours for the taking – lay the smackdown and don’t look back.

Streets of Rage 4 will be the first entry to the core series in 25 years, standing as Axel and Blaze’s glorious return to serving up side-scrolling beatdowns. With lush hand-drawn animations, new combat abilities, and fresh tracks from an amazing team of composers, Streets of Rage 4 will be a masterful tribute to and revitalization of the classic action fans adore.

Train2Game Borderlands 3 Announced

Randy Pitchford and Paul Sage finally, officially announced and confirmed Borderlands 3 is in development at the end of Gearbox’s PAX East 2019.

Gearbox and 2K confirmed the highly anticipated Borderlands sequel is in development, though no Borderlands 3 release date, platforms, or price was confirmed.

Aside from the trailer, 2K has teased more information on Borderlands 3 should be coming on April 3.

The trailer shows off some of the new and returning characters for Borderlands 3. Randy Pitchford teased some of these characters earlier in the PAX East panel, including the new villains and Vault Hunters.

Gearbox released Borderlands 2 in 2012, and ever since there has been discussion around the presumed sequel.

Back in 2015, Gearbox said it wanted to make Borderlands 3 but that the studio needed help to make Borderlands 3 happen.

2017 gave us our first taste of what Borderlands 3 would look like thanks to a GDC 2017 demo showcasing a Borderlands world. Later that year we learned most of Gearbox was working on a game we likely assumed to be Borderlands 3.

2018 gave us no concrete information about Borderlands, but earlier this year signs pointed to a potential Borderlands 3 announcement coming soon, while a teaser trailer released yesterday heavily teased what would be Borderlands 3.

You can watch the gameplay teaser trailer below, which debuted during the PAX East keynote and confirms characters, powers, and locations from the much-anticipated sequel.
