Streets of Rage 4 came out to high acclaim recently, with the action-packed brawler from DotEmu charming fans of old-school beat ’em ups across the globe. While the game only launched digitally, Limited Run Games has already been accepting pre-orders for some gorgeous standard and collector’s edition physical releases of the game that are expected to ship a bit later this year. If you missed out on or simply ignored the Limited Run Games physical offerings, though, perhaps you’ll be tempted by a different limited edition physical release of Streets of Rage 4 from Merge Games.
Liked Limited Run Games, Merge Games is offering both standard and limited-edition versions of their physical Streets of Rage 4 release. While Limited Run Games is only offering copies of the game on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, however, Merge Games is offering standard editions on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Standard editions not only come with the regular physical release of the game, but also include a miniature artbook, reversible cover art, and a special logo keyring.
Their Signature Edition of Streets of Rage 4, meanwhile, comes with a wealth of exclusive physical goodies sure to get fans excited. Along with the contents of the standard edition, the Signature Edition includes five enamel pins featuring portrait art of main characters Cherry Hunter, Blaze Fielding, Axel Stone, Adam Hunter, and Floyd Iraia. You’ll also get a replica of Axel Stone’s blue bandana adorned with the logo of the game, alongside an original soundtrack CD. On top of all of that, the Signature Edition includes a special outer sleeve with alternative artwork, a numbered collector’s certificate, and a large “Sierra” collectible box to house everything in.
The standard and Signature Edition physical releases of Streets of Rage 4 from Merge Games will be available on July 24, with the standard edition priced at $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99 and the Signature Edition priced at $59.99 / €59.99 / £49.99. You can pre-order here.
