WayForward’s Double Dragon reboot/homage/parody is due in September across PSN and XBLA, September 11th and 12th respectively.
Double Dragon Neon ups the “bro” quotient to nauseating levels with vivid color, high fives, and uber air guitar work. It’s not exactly what the series was known for before, but as a riff on ’80s culture, maybe this was the franchise destiny. Reactions have certainly been mixed.
Majesco is looking to score $10 from prospective buyers at launch, which doesn’t sound too bad for a retro themed beat-em-up, although the redone iOS/Android edition is only $3. Platform matters.
