Today we’re talking about the beat’em-up that energized beat’em-ups and practically made the term commonplace in the industry. It is, after all, in this month that the original Double Dragon hit arcades.
Arc System Works, known for the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue franchises, have acquired the rights to the Double Dragon, Super Dodge Ball, River City Ransom and Kunio-Kun series.
Wild Arms, ToeJam & Earl, Dino Crisis, Double Dragon Neon and Legend of Dragoon are just some of the classic titles you can get for only $0.99 each on the PlayStation Store this weekend.
It’s tempting to skip directly from 1987’s Street Fighter to 1991’s Street Fighter II to celebrate the success Capcom had in refining the fighting game formula, but a lot can happen in four years.
If given the choice, would you rather be a dragon-powered martial arts master, or a shape-shifting amphibian? The SNES title Battletoads & Double Dragon gives you the freedom to choose between these two factions, or team them up to take down a veritable army of rats, cyborgs, and shadows. But, after the dust has settled, and the crossover is finished, one question remains: who kicks badguy butt better, Double Dragons' Billy and Jimmy Lee, or the Battletoads, Rash, Pimple, and Zitz?
