Why you should play ''Streets Of Red: Devil's Deluxe'' this Friday Night
Designed to be played over and over again, this retro beat'em up co-op horror arcade ventures to make things different by offering us a permadeath gameplay.
Nintendo Switch | PS4 | PC Steam
Six unique play styles, hundreds of monstruosities to annihilate, evolving boss battles and multiplayer local co-op with 6 playable characters, each with unique skills sets and upgrades. If you are not excited by any of that, go check your pulse.
Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe puts us in front of a retro-arcade like the ones we haven’t seen in a long time. Each playthrough is different. Each path you take leads to a different boss battle, to a different challenge–to a different death.
Some games use permadeath lightly. That is not the case here: as with The Darkest Dungeon, in Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe, death will suit us well. Each time we get killed, its a new opportunity to play and discover one of the six characters of the game, leveling up their skills in the process.

TL;DR What we have here is an arcade game for the modern PC and consoles inspired by the old retro arcades. Streets Of Red: Devil Dare’s Deluxe is a superb permadeath multiplayer horror retro beat’em up for the PS4, the Nintendo Switch and the PC (via Steam) you just can’t miss.
