But ASW now owns both Kuno-kun and Double dragon. It at least confirms my suspicion that Million went out of business since we haven't heard from them in a while.

Great news for DD. I hated Neon and the iOS/Android game was underwhelming, so I'm hoping ArcSys can do a better job.

In some kind of perfect situation, it would result in a new fighting game based around DD! Yeah, it's pretty good news, assuming they use the properties.





You have to carefully reproduce the world of "Castlevania" in the solemn atmosphere.

Fun fact: (The Master System version of) Double Dragon was one of the very first games ASW worked on.

Double Dragon Isuka incoming

Although the old Double Dragon game that was on the Neo Geo was kind of amusing, I would really prefer a beat'em up to a 1v1 fighting game.

I personally hope they make some kind of new Kunio-kun game, and not just a remake of any of the old ones.

I agree.

I dunno... a new Dodge Dall might be pretty hype.

Did anyone like Rage of the Dragons? Was it under rated? Could it have been better and span more sequels? I like the beat'ems up better. One reason was becuase it was hard and it took precision to progress. Not sure if many (new) gamers would want that now.





Long Live!

Yeah, as nice as a new Kunio and/or DD fighting game would be, I'm reasonably sure that I would much rather have a new beat-em-up RPG with proper HD aesthetics and the most kickass rockabilly soundtrack possible.

Indeed. I own it. Wonderful port(flicker issues aside).

ASW's wonderful HD sprites and animation would be incredible for DD.
