As for the Streets of Rage 4 Classic Edition, its focus is on unique cases. People get the normal Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 4 case. They also get a Steelbook case. Finally, there is a large Genesis clam shell case that is oversized, so people can hold both the normal and steelbook cases inside. The Genesis replica case features the Limited Run exclusive cover.
Streets of Rage 4 will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring 2020. Only Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 physical copies are planned, and orders for them will remain open until seven days after the game appears via the eShop and PlayStation Store.
