Looks like a Steam version of this game is coming (Like very soon! Certainly was a surprise entry) . AND it has online co-op play, something which the PS3 and 360 versions didn't have. :(

Doubt it. They look fine as they are given the art style. :lol:

But yeah, would be nice to "Bro-Ops" with somebody on this game. I can barely play by myself on the PS3 version since it gets kind of retarded in the later stages. :(

Now that Arc System Works has acquired the rights to this franchise, amongst some others from Technos Japan, I hope they will do good with it and produce a new game with their trademark 2D sprites on 3D polygon backgrounds and Daisuke Ishiwatari rock music. :lol: :fyea:

WayForward Technologies did a pretty decent job with Neon and were for a time one of the best developers to go for modern remakes of retro classics. As much as an awesome tribute and parody it was, it did also have some flaws i.e. controls and animations felt a bit too slow for me. :okay:

I thought ASW did a wonderful job for Konami's Contra franchise with Hard Corps: Uprising, so let's hope the same treatment can be done for Double Dragon. :yes:

They are going back to the original retro look with the next game. :oh:

Was kind of hoping to see ArcSys's usual high quairty pixel art/3D backgrounds, but I guess this is fine?

Some of the new combo oppourtunities look neat.
