The long-awaited sequel Streets of Rage 4 released April 30 on PC, Xbox One, Switch and PlayStation 4. The release is digital only, but until May 10, you can pre-book one of several physical releases via Limited Run Games (including the game’s soundtrack on vinyl). Merge Games announces now that they too will produce physical editions of the game.
The releases from Merge will have other illustrations and extra lull-lull than those from Limited Run. The standard edition comes with a key ring and reversible cover (yes!), While the slightly more expensive Signature Edition boasts everything you can see below.
So there are four different issues in total:
- Limited Run Standard Edition (PS4 / NS)
- Limited Run Classic Edition (PS4 / NS)
- Merge Games Standard Edition (PS4 / NS / XB1 / PC)
- Merge Games Signature Edition (PS4 / NS / XB1)
Various Bundle packages from Limited Run are already sold out.
Limited Run closes its pre-orders for both issues on May 10. The game will be shipped 2-4 months after this date. Merge Games has no deadline for advance bookings and no date for when they will be sent out other than “this summer”.
Do you have ice in your stomach waiting for any of these in the mailbox? Or maybe double-dip and drive Streets of Rage 4 already now, digitally?
