'Double Dragon Neon' Kicks Butt Like It's 1987 All Over Again

If you grew up in or around the late 1980s into the early 1990s, and played video games, it's likely that you spent a little bit of time playing at least one of the Double Dragon games. A successful franchise developed by the now defunct Technos Games, with original releases that ran from 1987 through 1995, Double Dragon is a true classic game that first appeared on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Now, 25 years after its original release, series stars Billy and Jimmy have returned to kick more butt in Double Dragon Neon.

Who:
Developer WayForward Technologies, know for breathing new life into classics like Contra and A Boy And His Blob, have teamed up with Majesco Games to revitalize this long dormant franchise.

What:
Double Dragon is back and brighter than ever. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes of the 80s, Double Dragon Neon puts players in the high tops of Billy and Jimmy Lee and sends them off to save the lovely Marian, who has once again gotten herself punched and kidnapped. Players can choose which brother they want to be, and hit the streets to track their lady down. Not knowing where their journey will take them, Billy and Jimmy end up face-to-face with the mysterious master of evil, Skullmageddon in the fight of their lives. The game plays almost exactly as you remember it; punch as many guys (and girls) in the face to make it through the level. However, this time around there's some light RPG elements that all you to level up your characters by collecting cassette tapes, giving them stat boosts and special attacks. Basically, it's radical.

Where:
For just $10 or 800 MS Points, you can grab the download-only Double Dragon Neon on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. As an added bonus, you can even download the game's exceptional soundtrack for free right now.

Why:
Double Dragon is still one of the most influential games of all time, introducing co-op to beat ‘em-ups, forever changing the genre. Neon is a fantastic reimagining of this beloved franchise that brings this classic series back to life, and should tug at the heartstrings of any nostalgic gamer. The story is what you remember, and the gameplay is just about how you remember it. The tongue-in-cheek jokes and subtle callouts to the original games are just icing on the cake for fans that haven't seen a new release in way too long. If you have fond memories of beating up 8-bit baddies to save Marian from a long time ago, then do yourself a favor and get to know Billy and Jimmy all over again.
