Re: RetroGamer #103: The Making of Double Dragon

Looks like there'll be a follow-up issue dedicated to Renegade.

Re: RetroGamer #103: The Making of Double Dragon

I got a hold of the issue a few days ago just to read interview. It's informative, but a bit barebones. I guess it's because I already have the Pix'n Love issue that had a similar Kishimoto interview that went a bit more in-depth, but I wish they would've asked Kishimoto about the NES versions and t...

Re: RetroGamer #103: The Making of Double Dragon

Double Dragon was planned as a Kunio-kun sequel, but Kishimoto didn't want to spent too much time working on a separate overseas version like he did with Renegade, so he made a game that could be marketable everywhere.

Re: Double Dragon Remake Coming to iPhone and iPod Touch

I thought that's what the vid said? Really? My mistake, I only saw the first few minutes and didn't realize that what he was clarifying. Sorry. I sometimes wonder whether Poison would've such a huge following if it wasn't for all this false controversy about her true sex. Personally, I think the fe...

Re: Double Dragon Remake Coming to iPhone and iPod Touch

I don't think Zangief was ever supposed to be gay though. All the speculations started when a fan-written plot guide misinterpreted Zangief's official profile in the Japanese version of Alpha 3, which stated that Zangief disliked "cute girls". I don't think that automatically means that he...

Re: Double Dragon Neon

New screenshots from Majesco's site. Looks like they redid the HUD a bit. Almost every new enemy shown there seems to be a skin-swap though (kinda lazy to be honest).

Re: Double Dragon Neon

Forum post with character models. Be warned that one of the images shown is a spoiler. Even though I don't like the art style that much, it's still interesting to see how the models were created.

Re: Double Dragon Neon

I personally hope there will be actual enemy variety this time and that the skin swapping isn't just a cheap method to create an illusion of variety by reusing the same three or so character model for everyone. One big problem the Double Dragon series always had for me was the fact that you rarely f...

Re: Double Dragon Neon

I missed out on Dynamite Cop, but I did played its predecessor Die Hard Arcade on the arcades a few times. It felt rather weird how the characters were polygonal, but it still played like a 2D belt-scroller. There was a third arcade-only game in the series (Asian Dynamite), but it was pretty mediocr...

Re: Yoshihisa Kishimoto interview with The Verge

But since I read that article, I've been looking for the Double Dragon "unlicensed anime series", which it mentions. Can anybody help me out? He's probably referring to the cartoon series that Tradewest licensed out without Technos' involvement. He talked about it in the No Life special a...
