Streets of Rage 4: New Character, Online and Offline Co-Op Modes Announced

The final unknown character for Streets of Rage 4, Floyd Iraia, has been announced alongside two ways of playing with others online and offline in the upcoming brawler.Floyd joins the roster of five characters as a cybernetic powerhouse brawler. The official description of his playstyle, as described via an official press release, reads:

“The new character, Floyd, dishes out serious damage with his incredibly strong cybernetic arms, a cutting-edge upgrade courtesy of Streets of Rage 3’s playable cyborg, Dr. Zan. Although Floyd’s movement and health recovery are slower than most, he boasts the longest reach among the playable roster and tremendous power, ensuring any combo he puts an enemy through will be devastating.”
