I did some looking around and the only one that currently has a physical release is River City Girls. There were a couple of editions released by Limited Run Games for Switch and PS4 but all of them are sold out, although copies exist on Ebay. Best Buy currently has a preorder for the Switch that will be released on December 20th. There are also copies currently available for both the Switch and PS4 through play-asia.com.

It's hard to say if there will be physical editions for the other games - River City Girls was by a well-established studio (Wayforward, makers of the Shantae games and Double Dragon Neon, among others), but the other games I mentioned were made by very small independent studios (both The Takeover and Fight'n Rage were largely one-man projects). The Takeover was just officially released on Steam on the 9th - it was still in Early Access prior to then - so it will probably be at least few months before it even has a digital release on PS4 and Switch, let alone a physical one. Fight'n Rage is currently available digitally for the Switch and Xbox One (with a PS4 release coming soon, although with no date yet listed) and Mother Russia Bleeds has a digital release for the Switch and PS4. If I hear anything about any of the other games in the future I'll let you know - I'm not terribly optimistic, but then again I didn't anticipate Hollow Knight receiving a physical release either.

Another beat-em-up I found while looking for answers is Streets of Red, which only has a digital release on PS4 and Switch so far: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=la9JOXY0P-w

So far it's Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding and the new character Cherry Hunter (daugther of Adam Hunter from the original SoR). There will be at least one additional character, however.

Adam? Who's that? >_>;

Honestly, other than Alex, Blaze, Skate and Roo, I only remember the old cyborg guy from any of the games. And the other hidden boss character in SoR3, Shiva was his name?

I lost track of this game but two new characters have been revealed in the meantime - Adam Hunter from the original SoR and a new grappling character named Floyd Iraia, who has cyborg arms (almost like a combo of Max and Zan). The BIGGEST announcement (and the one the Critic will be most excited for) is that the game has 4-player local co-op! I was skeptical for a while but the newest trailers have me looking forward to this. Not for long, either - release date is sometime this spring for PS4/Switch/XBox One/PC.

I've seen River City Girls at the local Best Buy

For some reason, the cartoony art style just doesn't seem right for Streets of Rage. I would prefer pixel art in this case, even though I liked the cartoony art style in Wonder Boy.

I really want to get enthusiastic about SOR4, but I'm not too excited when watching preview gameplay video's. I'm not a fan of the new art style, but okay, I can live with that choice. However, the game seems kind of... bland in those preview trailers. It looks a little bit like an advanced Flash game and the music doesn't seem to be as thrilling as in SOR2. But hey, maybe I'm wrong and it will be the best SOR ever! For now I'm playing SOR Remake though...
