Classic beat-em-up returns for brawls in digital streets.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Streets of Rage 4 is an upcoming brawler for Windows PCs. The title builds upon the classic beat-'em-up franchise from consoles, and takes place years after the release of Streets of Rage 3. Series heroes Axel and Blaze return to the same streets they fought through in Streets of Rage 3, seeking to defeat gangs from taking over the city. Players will use their fists, feet and weapons to smash their way through dozens of opponents, and will also be able to trigger special moves through combos or by using some health to create more powerful strikes. Gameplay is very easy to pick up and learn how to play as wel. While violence is the point of the game, characters will cause light blood to appear when attacking opponents, although there's no gore. Also, the cartoonish nature of the visuals will lessen the impact of battle. There's may be some mild language included in dialogue.
