Majesco Entertainment has once again partnered with WayForward, the award-winning team known for bringing franchise favorites including BloodRayne:Â Betrayal back to audiences in exciting new ways, and is thrilled the fan-favorite developer is putting its signature spin on the father of all brawlers: Double Dragon! Double Dragon: Neon isnâ€™t a shoddy sequel â€“ itâ€™s a face-melting 80â€™s tour de force!
Featuring bodacious characters, gnarly combat, and a retro aesthetic, itâ€™s pure over-the-top baditudeâ€¦to the max!
â€œDouble Dragon: Neon is far from a standard retro remake,â€ said Sean Velasco, Director, WayForward. â€œItâ€™s WayForwardâ€™s love letter to the decade that spawned the franchise – the music, the style, and culture of the 80â€™s pulse through the nucleus of Double Dragon: Neon. But donâ€™t think this is a simple graphical facelift; with our innovative â€˜mix tapeâ€™ level up system and power-up high-fives, we pushed it to the limit!â€
Known for the beautiful aesthetics and renowned gameplay of A Boy and his Blob, Contra 4, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and BloodRayne: Betrayal, WayForward is applying its focused attention to detail on Double Dragon: Neon.
Taking place in a hyper-saturated omniverse, players beat up baddies across earth and beyond against the Black Dragon Clanâ€™s most nefarious leader yet- the supernatural scourge Skullmageddon. You could go it alone, but why wouldnâ€™t you want to grab a buddy and take your game to the next level with drop-in, drop-out online â€˜Bro-Op.
