The Streets of Rage 4 Mr. X Nightmare DLC is available now, but a technical issue is preventing it from being able to be purchased on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Dotemu issued a statement alerting people that it, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games are aware and working on a fix for the situation. While it didn’t have an exact release window, it noted it could be a few days before people can buy the game.
Here’s the full statement, which Dotemu shared on Twitter. Should people have a code for the Streets of Rage 4 DLC, they can enter that in the Switch eShop and acquire it without any issue.
We are aware of a technical issue affecting Nintendo Switch players from being able to purchase the [Streets of Rage 4] DLC. We are all hands on deck to remedy this issue for fans and will be posting updates on the ETA for when we anticipate the fix to be live.
Currently, our best projections are that the fix will come in following days but beyond that, we are unable to give a more accurate timeframe. This is extremely unfortunate for fans of the game who’ve waited patiently for the DLC and we apologize unreservedly.
For media outlets or content creators already in possession of a game code: please note that you will be able to play the game without this issue affecting gameplay.
The Mr. X Nightmare add-on includes three playable characters, a Survival mode, more music, and some additional weapons. It and a new free update that adds the Mania+ difficulty are available now on all platforms.
Streets of Rage 4 is available for the PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and PC, as is the Mr. X Nightmare add-on. The Streets of Rage 4 DLC Switch issue is being worked on. The PS4 and Switch Anniversary Edition with DLC on the cart and disc will be out on September 24, 2021.
