Throw done like it’s the 90’s again, as the Double Dragon is back in this new beat ’em up where you and a friend can take the city back one district at a time, but with much more abilities and tag-team combos!
Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons brings back the series’ classic pixel aesthetic and enhances it for the modern era with new sprites, and animations. The game features 13 playable characters, and players can now select not just their main character, but also a tag-team partner. Switch between your partners seamlessly during combat, or execute special moves with the pair to devastate the gang members.
As you progress you can unlock new missions, with each area you choose to take on having special objectives to grant even more bonuses. As you select each area, the other ones you didn’t pick up on become stronger, making the order you take on stages become a key factor in how you progress as you can decide on your own difficulty curve!
As you progress you’ll earn money you can spend on useful upgrades, and you can earn even more money with the game’s Crowd Control KO system, granting you even more money and completing dynamic missions if you manage to finish off multiple enemies with your powerful attacks!
