Double Dragon defined the brawler genre. The original arcade game, while revolutionary in its time just cannot hold up today. Fortunately, a semi-modern version of the game was released during the GameBoy Advance era. Even the Super Nintendo got its own Double Dragon game. Now, both games are coming to modern consoles. This announcement coincides nicely with the release of Double Dragon Gaiden.
Double Dragon Advance
This game was released back in 2003 for the GameBoy Advance and was essentially a remake of the original arcade. The GameBoy Advance version does have better graphics and is without all that annoying slowdown.
Super Double Dragon
This game was released for the Super NES in 1992. It was the first game released specifically for the Super NES.
You can play it on the Evercade today, in the Technos Collection 1. I covered that a game on my YouTube channel.
The collection comes out on November 9, 2023. In additional to Double Dragon Advance, and Super Double Dragon, you get these games:
- Super Double Dragon
- Double Dragon Advance
- Double Dragon
- Double Dragon II: The Revenge
- Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones
- Double Dragon IV
