I haven't played DDA since 2003; for some reason there was something about it that bugged me...it couldn't have been what I perceived to be muddier almost muted colors and graphics. But I liked how it was essentially a "remixed" game made a bit longer. Unlike DD1 and DD2, it wasn't one long map, but more levels.
For some reason I still really love SDD, just the epic feel of it and the colors perhaps. Anyways, can't wait to see what 2 player action looks like. I wonder if any other US DD fans have managed to get their hands on the Zeebo. I am tempted to call it an all out sequel. DD2 was pretty much a remake of DD1. This features so many new characters, styles, even levels that it feels more like a sequel(like say, a "DD5") than a mere remake or remix.
So I found a screenshot of what it looks like when it's all unlocked:
Of the 20 guys, the only ones I can positively identity are Billy, Jimmy, Abobo, Burnov and Willy. I don't see Linda there, but I think I saw her ingame.
Are one of those characters Steve? I liked how they turned Steve into a Matrix agent type guy in DDA. I'm guessing one of those guys is Williams? Maybe even a Jeff or Roper? Not sure. I'm sure you'd be better at speculating. I'm guessing those are generic ninjas, and not the same as the NES DD ninjas? Who the heck is that red monster guy?
