“Permadeath multiplayer horror beat’em up” Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe will launch digitally for PlayStation 4 and Switch on March 29 for $8.99, developer Secret Base announced.

While the game was originally planned for a February 27 release, it was delayed following concern from Adult Swim / Cartoon Network that the game’s parody of Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty was too similar to the real thing. The character design has since been altered as such:

About

In Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe, the only thing scarier than being eaten alive is running out of quarters! It’s a permadeath multiplayer horror beat’em up that bestows players with the skills of retro gaming heroes in a fight against a legion of undead monstrosities. By paying tribute and playing parody to the great horror games and films that came before it, Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe balances lighthearted comedy against tension so thick that you could cut through it with a knife, axe, or even a chainsaw! The chills, thrills, bills, and opportunity to learn new skills here won’t stop until every street runs red with blood! Are you up for the challenge of an anti-lifetime?

Gameplay

If a video game wants to generate real horror for its players, it first has to give them something to care about. Arcade beat ’em ups once had a natural advantage over their console cousins in that regard. After all, in-game deaths mean a lot more when your real life quarters are on the line. Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe takes that brand of old school tension and transports it to consoles in 2018 with an arcade-style currency system, tribute-parodies to classic horror and video game characters, and an ever-evolving level structure that makes every run a new experience.

Key Features

  • Simple Super Smash Bros.-style controls make for easy to learn but hard to master action!
  • Dynamically evolving difficulty adjusts to the number of players in game!
  • Parodies of characters from Stranger Things, Rick and MortyAttack on Titan, and many more!
  • Use in-game money for upgrades or continues. Run out of quarters and your save game dies with you!
  • Six unique playable characters and over thirteen bosses, some so big that they barely fit on screen!
