There's also the wiimote app for the android too and to be honest it's probably a better chance of it working on android. The reason being that the wiimote app in the case of the android basically makes it so that you can map the buttons on the wiimote and/or classic controller to the buttons on the keyboard. Since the iphone doesn't have a keyboard if the wiimote app isn't compatible then we'd only have the android version which would more then likely have keyboard support and viola, we're in there!
Also don't need an ipad to play it big, remember the iphone and a few android phones have tv-out!
Check out some of the youtube videos already of people playing iphone and android games on their tvs!
I'm sooo excited for this! Even if it ends up being touch screen only it's still a new DD game that you can play on your television!! So awesome!
Aw! I had forgotten about tv out. The only issue I could see is, if one is using the touchscreen, if you're watching the game via your tv it seems it'd be hard to precisely know where your fingers are moving on a flat lcd surface. I'm curious what other features it'll have. I think they should bring back the Vs. mode, which hasn't been seen since 88'. Also a time attack mode would be great(loved the time attack mode and exclusive levels for Final Fight CD) But yeah it is rather exciting, aside from DDZ I was wondering if we'd ever see a new DD game stateside(other than download ports/hd retouches on PSN/XBL)
I'm also wondering how many characters from the Zeebo game will be making it over, would be great to play as that huge green Abobo with the unlockable feature. The fact this has the hurricane air juggle is quite bad ass(my friend and I refer to the DD2 hurricane kick as "twirple twirple", our odd phonetic sounding of the move)
I was thinking how cool an official "Double Dragon 5" would be, or a "Neo Double Dragon"...perhaps taking place long after the first games. I could see them battling on flying fortresses in the sky,
atop giant mecha tank platforms in a desert, battling through a post apocalyptic city(ala the Contra 3 SNES level) while all still keeping the Zeebo/iphone gameplay.
This is really great news. Thanks for posting this you guys. I've posted the information on our front page so that everybody will know about it.
Now, getting down to business. Who's going to review this game for us, because I don't have an iPhone or any other smart phone, so I'm shit out of luck...
I know I'd love to see a full review of both DD Zeebo and iphone by Rockman. From what he says he's already poured a lot of time into the Zeebo version, which appears to be a sister companion to this forthcoming game.
