It looks like everything old is new again, or at least it will be in September, when Double Dragon: Neon is released! An HD update to the classic '80s franchise, Double Dragon: Neon is a side-scrolling beat-em-up with a decidedly retro style. Billy and Jimmy have to save their girlfriend, and will traverse 16 different levels with five degrees of difficulty. And naturally, you can get some help from a friend with co-op play. Most curious is the fact that you can find or purchase songs that have mystical powers you can add to a mix tape. Weird.
The toony, cel-shaded graphics look a little weird... I almost wish they'd gone full-on retro and had them be super-pixellated. But if you want to check out Double Dragon: Neon for yourself, it will be releasing on the Playstation Network on September 11 for $9.99 and Xbox LIVE Arcade on September 12 for 800 Microsoft Points. So break out that old jean jacket and get working on your mullet now so you're ready!
