Almost 30 years since the release of the original, we are finally getting a proper sequel to the series with Double Dragon IV. The game will be released digitally on Japanese PlayStation 4s and PCs in January 2017.

Double Dragon Neon was neat modern realization of the series, and now that Arc System Works has taken the reigns one might think it would get some nice Guilty Gear style art or at least some sort of modern graphics, but they made a decision to go retro.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Arc System Works, who acquired the Double Dragon IP previous year after it bounced around when original publisher Technos went bankrupt, have announced that the next game is finally on its way. We expect to see a retro side-scroller that has the feel of the original game baked right in.

Southwest Airlines investigating website outage
Just five days before Christmas as many are travelling for the holiday, the Southwest Airlines website crashed for several hours. We appreciate our customers' patience as we work behind the scenes to get full functionality back to our website".

The game features the original staff of the arcade version of Double Dragon, including producer Takaomi Kaneko, director Yoshihisa Kishimoto, character designer Koji Ogata, composer Kazunaka Yamane, and programmer Kei Oyama.

The official website for Double Dragon IV is now open, with both Japanese and English language options. It shows a title with some pixelated graphics.

One of the great franchises from the NES era was Double Dragon, and many gamers have fond memories of battling hordes of enemies as Billy and Jimmy Lee. The combat reminds me of the old arcade style games you'd find at your local liquor store or Dave and Busters.
