Double Dragon Neon Footage and Screens Tease Upcoming Release

Once upon a time, the name “Double Dragon” was huge in the world of gaming, often uttered alongside such household names as Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda. That was a long time ago, however, and the series has since all but completely faded into security.

But now, under the guiding hands of developer WayForward Technologies and publisher Majesco, Double Dragon is poised to rise again as Double Dragon Neon, coming in “just days” to the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Though the originals were set in a post-apocalyptic future, Neon is being geared as a tribute to the Eighties. This includes the “glorious falsetto-driven, synth-rock odes to the acid-washed” decade heard in the video above.
