Developer WayForward has surprised long time Double Dragon fans with the announcement of Double Dragon Neon for XBLA and PSN.
While the artistic style differs from past title, the developer has retained not only an over the top 80′s feel and updated soundtrack but even the signature “gut punch” of Jimmy and Billy’s lady friend, from the original. Not to mention the fact that WayForward are responsible for titles Contra 4 and BloodRayne: Betrayal and therefore there are plenty of positive and well founded expectations when the game hits this Spring (Autumn on this side of the world).
Fight as twin brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee on an exciting adventure to save their shared love interest, Marian from the evil Skullmageddon across 16 brawling levels filled with elaborate missions, malicious enemies and over-the-top battles.
Double Dragon: Neon is the reinvigorated update to the 80′s beat’em up smash hit that is reminiscent to the original. Trained by their sensei in the special form of martial arts called Sōsetsuken, Billy and Jimmy are equipped with lethal combat skills and weaponry to bust some faces and battle the baddest goons around as they journey across the galaxy to rescue the love of their lives.”
