    Double Dragon is getting a reboot courtesy of Majesco and WayForward Technologies. It will be downloadable on XBLA and PSN this July. However, instead of a straight up remake/reboot, it will be a bit more cheesy and tongue-in-cheek.

    Really not sure how to feel about this. I'm a huge fan of Double Dragon, but this games looks remind me of TMNT: Reshelled, which is not a good thing. But if it plays well, I'll be able to look past the odd art style.

    I was a HUGE Double Dragon fan back in the day, I will definitely purchase this once it comes out.

    Looks cheap. Like a homebrew PC game in 1998.

    I just wish someone would port the iPhone Double Dragon game to a console...any console. Controlling that game with a touch screen is a nightmare. Still, it will take a lot for this game to top Double Dragon Advance for the GBA.

    I loved DD at the arcades and I remember being so disappointed when I bought this game for the NES. ONE PLAYER! [​IMG]

    I loved the two player beat'em up games Bad Dudes, Double Dragon, Streets of Rage and I LOVED me some Battletoads!

    Maybe if Sega had actually spent time developing new Streets of Rage sequels for download instead of just ripping on Streets of Rage Remake, they wouldn't be going under right now!

    This game looks more like Streets of Rage than DD with the weapons and dashes, so it'll satisfy my cravings for SoR.

    If anybody knows a thing or three about 2D, its Wayforward. But I still need to see some video. Those screens posted in the OP look like a bad phone game.

    I'll get this out of pure nostalgia. I wonder if they will follow the original story line?
