    Double Dragon IV (PC/PS4) 01-30-2017

    Developed by Arc System Works
    The latest entry in the legendary side-scrolling action game series Double Dragon uses the same 80s visual style, but adds various new elements. Additionally, every mode can be played by two players at the same time. The story picks up after the elimination of the Shadow Warriors in Double Dragon II.

    The game features the original staff of the arcade version of Double Dragon, including producer Takaomi Kaneko, director Yoshihisa Kishimoto, character designer Koji Ogata, composer Kazunaka Yamane, and programmer Kei Oyama.

    I was hoping this game would use the Xrd engine.
    Instead, it looks like it's lower-quality than the 2003 GBA game (which also had juggles and such). Not that that game was bad, but it came out 13 years ago.

    Pass.

    I'm a sucker for anything double dragon, and no way it can be worse than the Atari 2600 port of the first one

    I think you're being way too harsh on the 2600 Double Dragon. That game had five different BGM songs!



    Although if we are talking about 2600 soundtracks, the conversation starts and stops with Juno First:

    I don't understand why they wouldn't just go with the arcade version sprites if they're not going to emulate NES hardware limits with this 'new' Double Dragon. You got this clash of NES sprites against rather coloured backgrounds.

    Xrd style would have been cool. That or just throw Wayforward at it again and ask for a retro sprite look which they're fluent in handling already.

    Double Dragon Neon was dope. I don't care what people say about it.

    Neon was worth the 5 bucks I paid just for the hilarious song the last boss sings after you beat him.
