Double Dragon: Neon Lights Up Summer With Retro Brawling
If you haven't heard of Double Dragon, someone will be along shortly to revoke your gamer card. You don't qualilfy.
Today, Majesco Entertainment has announced that Double Dragon: Neon will hit the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this summer. Dubbed a "full-scale digital game," it's in development at WayForward (BloodRayne: Betrayal) and it's destined to "put a signature spin on on the father of all brawlers."
In keeping with the over-the-top spirit with the iconic series, fans can expect "bodacious characters, gnarly combat, and a retro aesthetic." Yeah, lots of 80s terms in there; just the way it should be. And remember, this is not a remake; the designers are doing a lot more than giving it a "graphical facelift." Said WayForward director Sean Velasco:
"Double Dragon: Neon is far from a standard retro remake. It’s WayForward’s love letter to the decade that spawned the franchise - the music, the style, and culture of the 80’s pulse through the nucleus of Double Dragon: Neon. But don’t think this is a simple graphical facelift; with our innovative ‘mix tape’ level up system and power-up high-fives, we pushed it to the limit!"
Double Dragon: Neon takes place in a "hyper-saturated omniverse" where they must eventually take down Skullmageddon. If you need some help, feel free to take advantage of the drop-in, drop-out online "Bro-Op." For more info, visit the game's official website.
One last thing- I don't care how it turns out; I'm getting it. It's Double Dragon. It's going on my machine.
