The Return of Double Dragon | Now with Neons

by Jennifer KibbleSeptember 12, 2012

During PAX Prime, fellow TGFer William and I got a chance to try out Double Dragon Neon, which is now available for PsN and XBLA for $9.99 or 800MSPs.

From what we played, Double Dragon Neon takes you back to the good old retro arcade days while adding fresh new elements into the mix. The music and visuals scream the 1980’s and even bringing your friend back to life has some retro flare to it. When your partner falls, you have the chance to bring them back buy using a pencil to fix a cassette.

In Double Dragon Neon, you will see the return of Billy and Jimmy who must rescue Marian from Skullmageddeon. The main villain may be new, but those who played the original will recognize the return of Abobo, Linda and Williams.

This sidecrolling beat’em up adventure is just as fun as it used to be. Check out the video below:

    Im looking into getting a new computer for gaming and school work. Will this Cyberpower PC handle WOW, future games, and hopefully Diablo 3 (nobody knows for sure) on ultra settings? The website states that it can handle Starcraft 2 on high settings, but I’m just double checking. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Here is the link so you can see the parts they offer. thanks

    I was wondering about the song that plays during the monster truck chase in Double Dragon. I have the “soundtrack” but of course, this song is not on it!? The soundtrack has a title called “Monster Truck” but it’s instrumental and is NOT the song that I’m looking for. This song had words and a cool stutter sound to it.
