A legendary entry in the beat’em up genre finds new life in Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragon. Developed by Secret Base, players play as the Lee brothers and their allies to take on the rising threat of gangs in a devastated New York City. Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragon is available now for PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch with a 10% launch discount of select platforms. In our review we scored it 65 out of 100 saying, “Double Dragon Gaiden focuses on replayability to its detriment. Solid combat mechanics give way to balance considerations made to justify all of the difficulty sliders and upgrade systems. If I had to pick between a game with a lot of “replayability” versus a game I simply like to play, the latter will win out every time. Double Dragon Gaiden isn’t far off from being enjoyable on the merits of the gameplay alone, but it’s far enough to consider going back to the dojo and polishing its Sou-Setsu-Ken technique.”
Set in the nuclear wasteland of New York City during the year 199X, Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons features a showdown between the iconic Double Dragon brothers, Billy and Jimmy Lee, and their allies against the criminal gangs terrorizing the city for dominance. Defeat one gang and the others will seize the opportunity to grab more power for themselves by enhancing their own abilities and bringing in new sub-bosses to take players down. To combat this, fighters have a multitude of resources in their hands, including:
–Incredible, seamless tag-team action
–A multitude of damaging combos and special moves across the game’s 13 unique playable characters
–Two-player local co-op that quadruples the action with a friend
