WayForward bringing Double Dragon: Neon to PSN, XBLA

Publisher Majesco and developer WayForward (who were the team behind the excellent Contra 4 and the less excellent BloodRayne: Betrayal) have announced their latest retro revival: Double Dragon: Neon!

Double Dragon: Neon will be available for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this Summer and will make its public debut at this year’s PAX East expo (which starts in just under an hour!). Gamers are encouraged to take the battle to the Black Dragon Clan (and their new leader, Skullmageddon) at the Reverb Booth (#808).

“Double Dragon: Neon is far from a standard retro remake,” said Sean Velasco, Director, WayForward. “It’s WayForward’s love letter to the decade that spawned the franchise – the music, the style, and culture of the 80’s pulse through the nucleus of Double Dragon: Neon. But don’t think this is a simple graphical facelift; with our innovative ‘mix tape’ level up system and power-up high-fives, we pushed it to the limit!”

If you can’t make it to PAX East, be sure to check out Double Dragon: Neon’s first screenshots and concept art on the game’s Facebook page.
