Double Dragon Neon's 80's nostalgia trip will be available for download this September
The “Twin Dragons,” Billy and Jimmy Lee were once the king’s of the beat’em up, as they starred in some of the popular titles the genre had ever seen but as the 90’s rolled on, their stock began to decline. After Technos/SNK's failed attempt at re-branding the Double Dragon series as a fighter in 1995, the brothers quickly fell into obscurity, only to occasionally resurface for a handheld/mobile title, or ports of their arcade classics.
However, it was announced earlier this year that after 12 long years, Billy and Jimmy will once again have the chance to kick ass and take names in a brand new home console game dubbed Double Dragon Neon!
From what we saw of the game at PAX East this year, Neon will be a glorious 2D, neon infused, sidescrolling beat’em up filled with mullets, cutoff jean vests, babes, mix-tapes, and loads of punches and spin-kicks!
It was cool seeing the game in action but we didn’t get a release date, hell, we didn’t even hear anything about the game since then and to be honest, I had forgotten about it.
However, my memory was refreshed earlier today, as Majesco announced that the Wayford developed reboot, will be available for download on the PlayStation Network on September 11 for $10 and on Xbox Live Arcade September 12 for 800 MS points.
I can’t wait for this! I mean it’s a new Double Dragon! How can it not be awesome?
Oh and before you say anything about that last comment, the NES version of Double Dragon III does not exist. You saw nothing!

As soon as you read "BIMMY" in the dialog you should had already knew you was in for failure...
Bout time we get a release date. I've been trying to find info about this game since seeing it on hard news.
It's because of the Angry Video Game Nerd. Even with TMNT on NES, people hate it because they saw his review, but I liked it.
What's with the DDIII hate!? I love Double Dragon III! It was the first game to feature more playable characters than just Billy and Jimmy (outside of the vs. mode in the first NES game), and you could switch out characters at any time. Plus, the somerasault attack was just awesome!
First they said summer, then they said july, now at the end of july they say september. Oh well i cant complain, we are lucky to be getting it at all.
i was just searching a day or two ago trying to find out when this was coming out but to no avail. Hurrah! a release date and only 800 pts? sold. Already got my Tony Hawk, Rock band Blitz in August and Double Dragon in September
Well that sucks. This game went from "anyday now" to frikin September. I can't wait for this game.
Ayg... Just saying, there are way more downloadable titles in Xbox Live Arcade that I want than there are normal on-disc 360 games that I want. Same goes for PSN and PS3.
Some how I can't find the original arcade Double Dragon on xbox live arcade anymore some how its not on xbox live anymore.
Still can't wait to beat up some punk asses in this game.
No Steam love? I am dissapoint. >: (
i know tecnically it is, i just wish it was a brand new scenery or something new from waht i am seeing it borrows too much from the originals, but i could be wrong do, hopefully turn out to be good
It IS a full new game.
i didn't know there was a double dragon 3
Looking forward to this and for 10$? You can't beat that price. Hopefully it turns out great.
i wish it was a full new game and not a rehashed version of the first ones, also the developer is wayforward
Fun fact: The third Double Dragon game on the NES and the third Fire Emblem game on the GBA have the same subtitle: The Sacred Stones. Coincidence? I think not.
they Added the Tornado Kick & Reverse Elbow... sadly the game still looks slow and stiff as hell.
