What I don’t get is, HD 2D graphics are being used in brawlers, just on the wrong platforms! Dan Druff mentioned Fatal Fight on these forums [ viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4859
], not long ago.
So why couldn’t we have that sorta stuff, on the larger consoles?
That aside, I might get something thrown at me for saying this, but I kinda like the character designs, for DD Neon. Seeing as I shared my thoughts on the Neo-Geo DD designs, I figured I’d do it again, here:

She seems to be an amalgamation of various previous DD villainesses.
The primary inspiration seems to be Wander of the Dragons Linda (who seemed partially inspired by Poison, what with her hat and pink hair) - you can see her at the beginning of the video, at http://www.joystiq.com/2011/07/26/doubl ... d-to-xbla/
In a positive move, DD Neon has reincorporated the colour purple, into Linda’s wardrobe (how could they omit that?).
But the arm-stockings definitely resemble those worn by Sonia, in Rage of the Dragons. And her costume has obvious similarities, to DDV Dominique (although she herself was probably an attempt to translate Linda into the DD cartoon universe).
Williams is quite well translated, from his NES DD1 appearance. No complaints, there.
Roper seems to be a tribute to Jim Kelly. He looks a lot like Mr Jones, from RoTD, who was himself likely a tribute to Mr Kelly. The thing is, Kelly didn't play Roper, in Enter the Dragon. He was Williams!
