    I remember playing Double Dragon with my cousin when we were oh-so young…

    We always lost. I don’t know if the game was hard or we just sucked.

    • Sergio Briceño

      I played this with my older brother as a kid. This and TMNT for NES is what got me into beat’em ups. Oh such good times…

  • Seraph

    Ahhh yes. Double Dragon II on the NES. Possibly the best version of Double Dragon II too (if you exclude the PC-Engine one which was the same but with updated graphics).

    • DragonSix

      Double Dragon II gameboy was also pretty damn good.

      • Seraph

        However to be fair, Double Dragon II on the Gameboy was a reskinned Kunio game. Still pretty fun though.

    Is this the first NES VC title that allows multiplayer between two different 3DSes?

    • WarioFan63

      No, Any NES game on 3DS with co-op multiplayer allows that. The ones with take-turns multiplayer just stick with taking turns.

    WAIT WHAT!!!!!!!! the virtual console games are capable of multiplayer!!!??? so why does nintendo didn’t put that in mario golf???????????

    • WarioFan63

      NES on 3DS are capable of multiplayer. I’d imagine its because its easier for them to emulate the 2 player experience from NES than it is to emulate Game Boy link cables.

      • GaiunxWolfenX

        so Super C has multiplayer download play too???

        • WarioFan63

          You bet kid!

  • Need to see some Double Dragon Advance at some point, that game was fire.

  • Gekokujou

    This makes me wanna dust off my old NES and play it.
