Update (11th July 2024): Arc System Works has officially confirmed the project, named Double Dragon Revive. As you can see in the announcement trailer above, it is indeed a brand new beat-'em-up with a 3D art style. Going by the very end of the video, it appears to be in development at Yuke's; the team's previous game was AEW: Fight Forever. It's heading to PS5 and PS4 next year, and that's about all we know for now.

Original Story: Japanese game studio Arc System Works is working on a new entry in the Double Dragon series. That's according to Famitsu magazine (via Ryokutya2089), stating the game will see the franchise "reborn in 3D".

Apparently, this new 3D Double Dragon title will reproduce the arcadey action of the classic games, with modernised controls and difficulty settings. Jimmy Lee, Billy Lee, Roper, Abobo, and other characters will be included, presented in a new 3D style.

Arc System Works is a team known for its stylish fighting games such as Dragon Ball FighterZ and Guilty Gear Strive. It acquired the rights to Double Dragon some time ago, with the last mainline entry being the middling Double Dragon 4. While details on the upcoming game are slim right now, it sounds like a reinvention of sorts, which may be just the ticket.

Famitsu states the game will release for PS5 and PS4 in 2025, so we'll have to wait and see how it shapes up. Are you interested in a new Double Dragon? Tell us in the comments section below.
