More Double Dragon Is Coming To North America

By Spencer . December 6, 2013 . 2:29am

imageAfter being dormant for years, Double Dragon made a comeback starting with the iPhone remake from Aksys Games and then a brand new game from WayForward. This year we got the odd 3D remake of Double Dragon II on Xbox Live Arcade and just a few days ago Double Dragon Trilogy.

 

Siliconera hears the Double Dragon fighting game for PsOne will be released in North America as a digital import in the near future. This game was originally released for NeoGeo and was actually the last Double Dragon game from Technos. In addition to Billy and Jimmy, you can play as Marian who got kidnapped in the earlier games (why didn’t she fight back then is beyond me), Abobo, and other Double Dragon bosses.

    Cool.. but they could put the GGPO in this

    • doubleO7

      In the PS1 classic? No changes are made to those whatsoever. If they were to do a proper port to the PS3 then they could.

    • Steven Hunt

      I’m not entirely certain that would be beneficial in any way, shape, or form. A GGPO license is $5000 – way more than I assume anyone who is simply emulating old games is willing to pay. Plus GGPO is not magic – it takes time and effort to integrate the code into a game. I’ll never understand why “just add GGPO” is shorthand for “make the netcode good” when I’d wager 90% of the games with GGPO have terrible online multiplayer because it wasn’t implemented correctly.

    “Siliconera hears the Double Dragon fighting game….”

    OH GOD NOT DD5: THE SHADOW FALLS

    “…for PS1 that was originally released on NeoGeo…”

    PHEW.

    • Göran Isacson

      Ha ha yes, I did a double-take until I saw it was the Neogeo game. Crisis averted, I think- I’ve HEARD that game was better than DD5, but never played it.

      In other news: Yosuke in a Wonderful 101 mask? I think I approve of that icon. Especially if Yosuke gets pushed around as much as Wonder Blue.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    dude, I loved this game!
    if there is one good thing that came out of the live action movie, it was this game!

  • Professor_Icepick

    I wish they had used the original NeoGeo version of this instead. Oh well.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    Double Dragon was the first arcade game I ever beat. My mom helped me play it!

  • ギャビン

    LOL me and my friend go IN on this game on mame! Will get for sure.

  • Guest

    LOL this game. I remember the intro had super-grainy footage from the movie in it.

  • Bunzi

    I always loved the completely random shounen transformations they gave Billy and Jimmy in that game.

  • Nick Sniezek

    That is cool news, the Double Dragon fighting game is coming to PSN. Speaking of which, how is the PS1 port of this Neo Geo fighter? I don’t hear to much info about the quality of the port.

    • Rob Toohey

      the PS1 has problems with 2D games in general. It’s not a bad port, but not a very good one either.

  • WolfDuo

    OMG yes! I remeber playing this in a retro arcade after school when I was a kid!
    If this Double Dragon comes out, I’ll be throwing my money at them.
