Fans of the classic arcade and NES beat-em-up Double Dragon have been waiting patiently for a release date for the upcoming reboot, Double Dragon Neon
. Well, the wait is over. The game will be available on PSN and XBLA starting September 12th. It'll cost $9.99 on PSN and 800 MS points in that weirdo XBLA currency conversion Microsoft still insists on using. I never got into the original game, not having an NES during Double Dragon's heyday, but if Neon is anything like Wayforward's other releases, I think the fans will be pleased.
ROCK ON, DUDE! DOUBLE DRAGON: NEON COMING TO XBLA AND PSN SEPTEMBER 11/12
Since announcing the fresh new hotness that is Double Dragon: Neon, fans have been tapping their toes waiting for an official release date for the most radical game of 2012 (and 1987, because Double Dragon: Neon is so awesome it rocks across time and space). Finally, we can let the cat out of the bag – Double Dragon: Neon will be coming to PlayStation®Network on September 11 for $9.99 and to the Xbox LIVE®Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft on September 12 for 800 Microsoft points.
