If the return of Streets of Rage has left you wanting more, watch out for the Mayhem Brawler trailer

We have been repeating it for a few years: the beat ’em up genre is living its youth from the turning point that Castle Crashers supposed a decade ago. Since then the games of “me against the neighborhood” have multiplied, coinciding in 2020 two that have taken 26 years to return …

We are talking, of course, about Battletoads and Streets of Rage 4. Mayhem brawler of the Hero Concept study does not look like the second.

Inspired by the beat ’em up of the 90s, we are facing another game of beating left and right that replicates to some extent the graphic style of the recent work by DotEmu, Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games, giving the feeling of being at times a mod. But, similar apart, we are facing a new game.

With a very marked comic book aesthetic, here we will take the role of one of the three members of the Stronghold law agency, with Trouble, Star and Dolphin, each with their own powers. And with the aim of protecting the city from thugs.

Mayhem Brawler will offer a local co-op mode for three players, where we can choose different routes for your campaign, which will lead to three possible endings. It is expected for PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in 2021.
