Developers’ Wayforward Technologies has revealed via IGN that they are working with Majesco to bring a reboot of Double Dragon to the Xbox LIVE Arcade this Summer entitled ‘Neon’.
In Double Dragon: Neon, brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee (aka Hammer and Spike), return as they fight to save Marian from a villain named Skullmageddon. Featuring the same 2D side-scrolling action known and loved from the original – the Neon reboot will be given an 80’s theme, so hopefully not a Wham track in sight…
Gameplay is set to consist of martial arts and weapon-based combat with players being able to perform combos and use baseball bats, whips, and even hand grenades! Double Dragon: Neon is all about neon lights and bright colors.
Double Dragon: Neon with its 80s flair will launch this Summer – expect more information in the coming weeks.
