In case you missed the news, Streets of Rage 4 is getting a bumper DLC pack in the near future. Titled Mr. X Nightmare, the premium expansion is set to feature brand new modes, original music, and most importantly, new playable characters. We already know that fan favourite Estel is joining the fight, but publisher Dotemu has just announced the second new face coming to the game.

Well, actually, it's an old face. Max Thunder, the big, powerful bruiser from Streets of Rage 2 will be playable once again in the latest entry. He looks to be the slow-but-strong wrestler we all know and love, and it's great to have him back.

The DLC is coming sometime in 2021. Are you excited to play as this new version of Max in Streets of Rage 4? Tell us in the comments section below.
