Abobo Is Back! Double Dragon Remake Barrels Onto iPhone

By Spencer . February 11, 2011 . 1:05am

5After Technos Japan folded, Million picked up the company’s intellectual properties such as Kunio-Kun and Double Dragon. While we’ve seen a bunch of Kunio-Kun sports games, Million hasn’t done to much with Double Dragon.


Well, until now. With Aksys as the publisher, Million gave the original Double Dragon a complete overhaul. They kept the story, Marian gets kidnapped and you have to rescue her by beating up the Black Warriors. Billy and Jimmy could just fork over the Sousetsuken scrolls, but then we wouldn’t have a game. Double Dragon for iPhone has a new different attacks, enemies, bosses, and hidden characters to find. The artwork is completely different and this version has remixed music.


Brizo Interactive, the studio that developed Double Dragon for the Zeebo, are behind the iPhone game. Aksys will release Double Dragon on iTunes in March.

    Doggone it. I hope this gets ported to DS or PSP.

    You know, the double-input touch screen that new smartphones use could be pretty well suited to emulate a NES-like controller on the screen… if only the touch controls weren’t so imprecise.

  • Looks swanky. River City Ransom enchancement would be most welcomed next :D

  • I don’t care how it looks as long as it plays like DD2 on the NES.

    • It plays like this…


      Awesome game to be sure, but not like dd2 on nes. The hyper uppercut and knee for example are WAY easier and there are no platforming parts =/

        Color me interested. Pretty fast paced. I was hoping maybe the gameplay was more along the lines of Super Double Dragon – probably one of, if not the best, two-player beat’em up game on the SNES.

    I don’t care how it looks or plays as long as it has a touchscreen d-pad and buttons. Pass.

  • Kunio_kun

    Me wantee!

    I hate touchscreen controls for games like this. Game Dev Story fine but it’s friggin hard to play any game that requires this amount of precision. Please port to umm I don’t know anything else.

  • I can just hope with the advent of NGP with its multitouch screen, games like this will be ported there but with tactile controls integrated for those who want it. Maybe sony was aiming for some of iOS’s/android crowd all along

  • Icon

    Million’s involvement intrigues me. Too bad I don’t own an iPhone.

  • masuto

    Yes! About time for a Double Dragon remake! I will buy!

  • Yay, Double Dragon! :D

    Though we’re not the publisher, Brizo is :) We’re just helping them market the game in the US and invested in the project ;)

  • In for one.
