Double Dragon II: Wanderer of the Dragons Cyclone (should that be Dragon's?) is coming to XBLA sometime from Korean developer Barunson Creative. Arcade Double Dragon II really wasn't as good as the original, but the console ports were tons better, so here's hoping this is based on one of them.

But do you have emulators for testicles, the body parts that someone who isn't excited about a new Double Dragon game clearly lacks?

Aww, I was only teasing you, Mr. 'Card. I agree with Joe that you're the coolest kid in school!

Why ? Because he had emulator for testicles ? :8):

Anyway, anything labeled as "Double Dragon" deserve a try. Good info, east ! :thumb-up:

That actually is the reason, yes. Also because he drinks Fosters beer all day and can throw a boomerang better than anyone I know. :D

I can now confirm this is a 3D remake/reinterpretation of Double Dragon 2. I'm shopping around a preview article to a few different websites. Hopefully someone picks it up, and then I'll have lots more information to share.

Wow they must of grabbd an engine from the 90s.

Noooo, if they did that it would look awesome. Unless you mean N64-era 90s but I think it looks better than that.

Co-Optimus is a site that exclusively covers games with cooperative multiplayer components. It's not huge, but still growing exponentially. Shopped the article around a bit and they were the best fit for it. But all the big places like IGN and 1up picked it up and sourced us, which is rad.

I see what you did there. Clever!

Did you make the video, eastx?

I don't like it. Somethings you just don't mess with. They should had made hd version of 8bit nes one & the arcade one. I love both.

No, I just got the devs to send me the video. It's not the most effective trailer, I know - weird pace, etc. But it does reveal a decent amount of information about the game, at least!

Me, I am totally happy and open-minded about new looks and interpretations for classic games. I think this one could easily be more fun than the original thanks to the gameplay improvements like combos and blocking. But I know a lot of people see a different look and cringe, which is too bad.

The best double dragon 2 is the nes version, why can't they port the nes version or the arcade version is fine too.
