Side-scrolling beat-em up fans will be pleased to learn that DotEmu will be bringing one of the most classic franchises to mobile at some point this year. I’m speaking of Double Dragon, the game that had you and your brother fighting over who would be the one to kiss the damsel in distress at the end of the game.
We’re not getting one game. We’re not even getting two. DotEmu will be bringing the first three Double Dragon games in one nice, neat, downloadable package. The game isn’t terribly complex, nor was it the most original concept for its time, but it captivated us as if it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
This is something many gaming fans should be happy about, E=even if nostalgia is your only incentive for getting excited. The games will feature Bluetooth controller support for those not down with on-screen controls, leaderboard support, a new difficulty mode, and more. No word on cost or exact release date just yet, but we should be seeing it sometime before Santa lands on your rooftop to gobble up the milk and cookies this Christmas. Watch a quick video highlight above.
