By now, almost everyone knows of the infamous Double Dragon duo, twin brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee. For those who grew up with this series on the original 8 bit Nintendo Entertainment System, the franchise is remembered as an elbow throwing good time. Who can forget the first time they saw Marian get punched in the gut or that moment when the massive Abobo came busting through a wall. Double Dragon Neon takes every measure to recapture these moments and feelings.
In this new rebirth of the series, WayForward Technologies pays homage the best way possible: blaten flattery. Taking everything you love about the original three games, wrapping it in a shiny new skin and injecting it with a huge shot of 80′s nostalgia. Adding in elements of RPG with the mixtape system, all new boss’s and as always a damsel in distress and we are ready to travel back in time.
