Streets of Rage 4 Mr. X Nightmare DLC artwork

A full year has gone by since Streets of Rage 4 first arrived, so if you're looking for some sort of excuse to give it another whirl, you'll be happy to hear the very first DLC has now arrived. The aptly titled Mr. X Nightmare will have you enter a simulation created from the remnants of Mr. X's brain, in which you will encounter three new playable characters, a brand new Survival mode, a new character customization system, as well as new arenas, traps and enemies to toy around with.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this nonsense looks like in action through the recently posted launch trailer. Have a gander, it's a rather straightforward one:

From what I can tell the Mr. X Nightmare DLC has received some pretty favorable reviews across the board. Even the complaints, what few of them are around, are mostly focused on bugs and technical issues rather than on the quality of the new content. So if the new Survival mode and characters sound tantalizing to you, I'd say Mr. X Nightmare is well worth giving a closer look.

You can do so, as well as check out the aforementioned reviews, over at Steam. Have fun, and I'll leave you with one of the trailers focusing mostly on the Survival game mode:
