Although I've been enjoying the Double Dragon series of video games for almost thirty years – this week marked the very first time I played Double Dragon II (DDII) for the PC Engine (PCE). DDII PCE is an odd and often overlooked game because it is a port of a port.
DDII hit arcades in 1989 and was quickly followed by the very popular Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) port in 1990. The NES port was very different from the arcade version...normally a bad thing...but in this case a smash hit was produced!
In 1993 PCE released their own port of the NES version, adding some of their own changes, as well as bringing back a few of the discarded arcade elements. On the surface this would sound like a terrible idea but the result is another excellent game. Of the almost sixty Double Dragon games reviewed at Double Dragon Dojo () - DDII PCE is one of just four to receive an A+ rating.
Getting to the point...
DDII PCE contains more cut scenes and story line than most other Double Dragon games. The trouble is the PCE version was a "Japan only" release and no English translation exists. Being an avid Double Dragon fan, I would love to read an English transcript of all the cut scenes.
Cut Scenes Part 1:
Cut Scenes Part 2 (includes Hard Mode ending):
Normal Mode Ending:
Easy Mode Ending:
I am posting here in the hope that someone reading this might enjoy the task of creating an English transcript for this very special game. If that is possible, I know there are plenty of Double Dragon fans, as well as PC Engine fans who would love to access the translation.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear back.

I never got a chance to play the PC version but the game seemed awesome.
