Actually, that listing is for the Virtual Console release of Double Dragon on the NES. I've found several websites that list Aksys Games as the publisher of the Virtual Console version, so there's no doubt in my mind that's what is listed on the ESRB page. That's too bad because I could really go for a WiiWare Double Dragon title.

Ok.. So I was SO excited about DDi that I actually found a way to get to the sites source swf files and then decompiled them to see if maybe there was anything laying around in the code or the objects. Anyone who knows about game sites know that usually stuff like this happens, especially when there is sort of a "countdown" system in place for the site (i.e. how all the boss characters aren't shown). So I went in hoping that I'd at least score some unobstructed character art for a really cool avatar and I got MUCH more from it!

So if anyone is interested, here is the site rip of the Double Dragon Iphone site and some of the REALLY cool things I found!

First off is the picture of Billy, Jimmy and Marian from the "Story" part of the page which is actually a pretty cool piece of art. We get to see the dragons and Marian in clothes other then what we've seen them in before and they're shaolin style clothes:



I was also able to rip the Snipit of the "Mission" screen from the site too! It's a pretty cool remix of the mission music from DDA which is of course a slower version of the old Nes and Arcade mission music! It's literally maybe 12 seconds long but awesome nonetheless.



Next up is where it really gets good. After ripping the "Character" portion of the site I was able to decompile the swf and get these really cool stand alone pics of the characters (Forgive that they're all a little different in width and length as I print screened em from the program I was using and cut them in paint):

First off is Billy of course:




Then next is my fav, Jimmy!:



Followed by the 3 Bosses that we know so far: Abobo, Lavis and Burnov respectively:








So that's it for what we know... Now for the last 3 Bosses!! One of them We'd have no way of knowing and the other one is obviously a given.. But the last one freakin blew my mind if only to see him in THIS form! You guys ready?

First there's Big Boss Machine Gun Wily Mackey. No surprises here but his art freaking rocks:




Next up is a chick who resembles the fat headphones wearing boss from the Double Dragon Zeebo game, the one me and my friends named "Fat Duck King" because of his resemblance to the SNK character, but seriously she looks so similar to him she could be his sister or something:





Annnd finally the boss that got me the most excited/amped/nostalgic...... NES VERSION OF CHIN!!!




I was crazy psyched to see THIS version of the character! Not that I didn't like chin with sticks but this guy was an NES exclusive and as such I have this nostalgic spot for him in my heart! Plus it sucked that you could just leave and pass the stage without beating him back in the day hahaha.

The last 3 weren't in order, obviously wily is the last boss, but since we already knew that I just spaced em' that way for dramatic effect lol. So what we can take away from this site rip is 2 things for sure:

1. The game is 6 levels long (we could've figured that out before but with only those 6 being in the sites files, it's pretty much cemented now).

2. This game is WAYYY different from the Zeebo version in terms of characters at the very least. The generic thugs shown in the trailer all resemble the zeebo thugs in one way or another and mostly just have different fighting stances or clothes (Linda is sporting her DD2 mowhawk look), but lapis, duck king girl and nes chin are NOWHERE to be found in the zeebo version so basically a whole new game for us!

Oh and speaking of trailers there is an extended gameplay video of what we see in the first few seconds of the trailer with Billy on the first stage! If anyone has watched my tutorial on DD:Z then you know how into the combat system I am. Well this video proves that unlike the Zeebo version where certain moves can only juggle after other moves, you have the full run of moves to juggle with in this game! Pretty much if you can think it then you can do it!

Watch at about 27 seconds into the video Billy hits Punch x2 -> Uppercut -> Jump into cyclone kick -> Jump into dive kick -> Hyper knee! Also it seems that earlier in the video when Billy grabs he is seen doing stomach punches as opposed to the old muy thai knees up close.. Check it out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgmUt3lf1Fo

So yeah guys, that's about the it! Brizo has been saying on the Facebook page that the game is due out early March, so only a few more weeks left!! I got my iphone and my tv-out cable ready you guys, so expect videos! So hyped!!

Very nice work there Rockman.

I like Billy and Chin's artwork. Jimmy I'm not so fond of. They got his hair wrong and his face is a little off. The rest are pretty good. Though I have to say it's strange to see a sexy female character as an enemy. Linda was always a bit butch and you never felt bad about punching her in the face, especially when she got that Mohawk in Double Dragon II.

Amazing work, as always. I have to say, just personally, this is the most exciting new DD game for me in 19 years. I remain rather mixed on DDA, I love DD Neo Geo, but DDi just has this symphonic fluidity to the moves and I really like the modern look to the characters. Having two stylish girl bosses just rocks my argyle socks. And Chin! I know he made his arcade debut in DD2, but I did like how Chin was the one
exclusive guy to DD NES. I wish this could be seven levels, but overall this looks amazing.

So we know level 1 is the classic slums, and level 3 is apparently a college or high school(strangely enough) Really curious as to what the remaining four levels are(again, guessing stage 6 is a revamped Willy hideout stage) I can only imagine how awesome it'd be to play through the game as Lavis or that other girl as unlockable characters. I wish they'd include a Vs mode, but so far this looks amazing.

What are the other characters you can tell so far? I'm seeing Williams, Roper and Linda so far...any others?
Also Rockman, what are the three main things you're excited about regarding this?

GAME IS OUT!!!

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/doubledr ... 95028?mt=8

and it's only $3.99!!

I got the tv-out wire for my ipod and I'm gonna see if I can record some video sometime this weekend for you guys! Get hyped! DD is back!

EDIT: So of course I should be getting ready to go to work but I played through the first stage lol. Initial impressions is that the game is fricken AWESOME! The music, while it is the standard double dragon stage musics, have been completely arranged! Almost to the level of the DD2 Arranged soundtrack I'd say (I even heard some saxophones in city slum theme!). Just going through the help menu I can see they put A LOT of work into this game! So many moves that you start with and even then there's an experience system (like dd1 nes) that adds even MORE moves! Unlinke dd nes though the moves you start with are more then enough to get through the game (you start with every move from the zeebo/dd:a version) so I'm really excited to see what else you can get. Also there are cutscenes with dialogue between the dragons and the bosses, both before and after a fight. So not only do you get to trash talk abobo before the fight but he gives you the clue as to where to go right afterwards.. Nice touch Brizo!

Also much like the manuals would hint at back in the day: Jimmy is good at punching and Billy is good at kicking... which they actually incorporate into this game! Jimmy's punches take more life and vice versa! Finally another reason to play your favorite dragon besides you just liking one character better then the other! Also looking ast the character select screen there seems to be a total of 26 characters available for play (including Billy and Jimmy)!

Now I gotta admit the cons of it... Touch screen controls are not awesome =( . They don't ruin the game totally, but being a person who's played through both DD:A and DD:Z religiously I know that using EVERY move is what its all about whether in juggles or anything else.. the touch screen controls make that VERY hard. Like I said it's playable but the game is so fast paced that sometimes you miss the buttons and other times you can't get to them fast enough while your enemy is airborne in a juggle.

Like I said before I'm praying that the android version has keyboard support so that we can use the wiimote app to play the game with the classic controller, or hell maybe if we badger them enough they'd add bluetooth keyboard support to the ipod/iphone version so that we can do the same thing here. Anyone who's with me please help launch a campaign aimed at their facebook and twitter accounts because they actually answer to both!

But bottom line is DD is BACK and this game, even if the controls take some getting used to, does indeed rock!
