Double Dragon 4

Its been 27 years since Double Dragon 3 came out in 1990, and on Jan 20th 2017 Double Dragon 4 will be coming out on PS4 and Steam, Most of the original developers for the original arcade game are involved in developing the sequel.

The new game will be released for the 30th Anniversary of the original Double Dragon arcade game.

DD2 is a fantastic game and I'm glad this one's in the same style.

Never played any of them, any reason to check one out? It seems one of those series that paved the way for the genre but because of it isn't what would now be considered good and can't appreciate unless you played it back then.

Uh... what, are they not counting Super Double Dragon? This should be Double Dragon 6.





This is bullsh*t.

But only 22 years since Double Dragon 5 came out in 1994, and 24 years since Super Double Dragon in 1992. This is probably just going to be a Mega Man 9-like 8 bit recreation that wants you to forget the SNES+ versions of games to give the hipsters of today their nostalgic jollies.

Well this is normal since it automatically gives it a "it's a sequel to what you liked". The Mega Man example did respect the numbers though since 7 came out on SNES and 8 in 9 on PSX. You even see it in music I remember when Korn released "III" so you'd know it was going to be like the first two.

Ignoring Super DD wouldn't be such a bad thing since it's technically not "IV" but the fact that "V" was made after for the SNES retroactively made Super number IV but I guess this IV will be the "real" IV and all this time it was missing

Pretty much my thoughts as well. I played a bit of the first two DD games back in 2008 or so and I wasn't a big fan of them. They were clearly dated. I'd rather just play Final Fight 2 or one of those Konami TMNT beat 'em ups such as TiT and the original arcade game.

I might play this game, though. It seems it's gonna look exactly like the NES DD games, but I wonder if the gameplay will have some changes in order to make it more suitable for today's gameplay standards?

And as for your convo with Andrew about DD series... what about that crossover with the Battletoads lol? Where does that one fit in.

It looks WAY too much like the original. At first I had to double check if I was looking at the trailer of the upcoming remake or just at footage form the NES games.

Wait, that was actual gameplay footage? I thought they were just taking us down memory lane of Double Dragon 1-3.

I know, right? It says Teaser Trailer in the title... but God I hope it was just a nostalgia trip. But what point would there be in not showing us what the NEW game would look like at all?!

I just hope it's actually playable and not 3 lives and no continues or hell, one life and no continues. I know being Nintendo tough made these games but maybe take the middle ground between choosing say 3 lives and 3 continues or just 3 lives no continues. Give new fans a fighting chance.

Maybe they'll make it "pay to play" in regards to extra credits? Nothing would surprise me these days.

Well... the original was the kick ass 2 player arcade, not the one player wannabe that had you level up just to use the moves you already had in the arcade. Needless to say I was very surprised and disappointed to play the NES one back when it was new after kicking all sorts ass in the arcade version.

DDNEON actually captured the essential of both the real arcade and the extra traps and side scrolling elements of the 8bit versions.

Double Dragon 2 on the NES had 2 players and was pretty good, Its one of the games on the NES Classic Edition.
