Jimmy and Billy are back

Pull out your Dad’s favourite 80s hair metal LPs and squeeze into your Mum’s leopard skin pants – because Double Dragon is making a comeback.

Publisher Majesco announced the exciting news this evening, confirming that 2D masters WayForward Technologies are handling the long overdue makeover.

Double Dragon: Neon – due out on PSN this July – promises to stick closely to the franchise’s fighty origins, serving up a hearty helping of old-school left-to-right scrapping. Expect a simple combo system and plenty of collectible weaponry, including baseball bats and hand grenades.

This is the first Double Dragon entry since The Shadow Falls released on SNES and Mega Drive way back in 1994. Excuse us a moment — we're off to find our guyliner.
