Double up on Double Dragon Advance and Super Double Dragon re-release

More On: Double Dragon Advance

Story time. Double Dragon released in arcades in 1987. The two player beat-em-up is considered one of the hardest and unfair games of it's time. It did what it was set out to do, and that is to make money. When the NES version came out, it was only one player, and as close as it came to the Arcade version, it was just as hard. If you got all the way to the end, even with a few exploits, and knowing it takes 16 jump kicks to beat an Abobo, you still got smacked by MG Willy at the end, because, he had a machine gun. 

After a few sequels, and yes, even Super Double Dragon, Double Dragon finally came home in a full recreated arcade version called Double Dragon Advance, and it was published by Atlus, and distributed by then owner, Million. All that to say, the games have been re released with a tornado kick out of nowhere by Arc Systems Works. Now, for 6.99 each, you can get Double Dragon Advance (same name), and Super Double Dragon for all modern game systems, with some quality of life upgrades. Again, I don't know who this is for, but if you want em, go and get em on practically everything. Say hi to Marian for me, before she's given to the lifestream in Double Dragon 2. (Spoilers)
