If you’re a fan of the Double Dragon games through the years, then you do not want to miss the next installment in the series. Double Dragon 4 is coming in a few hours in Japan and here’s what you can expect.
One can remember that there was never a Double Dragon 4 until now. There was a Double Dragon 5 but no official 4th Double Dragon in the series. Now that there is one, we can expect a bit of old school and retro style game coming up.
Double Dragon 4 will be bringing in new gameplay and some familiar faces. Arc System Works has released all the details needed in their trailer which you can view below.
The Double Dragon series was previously caught in a bankruptcy issue, worrying fans of the game that it would discontinue. A lot of work was put to rebook the series but it didn’t turn out as successful as everyone thought it would.
With Double Dragon 4 coming out, it was time to take a look back in my past and revisit Super Double Dragon. – https://t.co/LhlPr3yzOJ
