In this case, drugs were involved, yes.
Billy and Jimmy are back, and they are…pinker. Wayforward and Majesco Entertainment have updated the classic franchise for Double Dragon: Neon and put a powerful acid-tripped, retro, 1980’s art style into effect.
The same beat-em-up style seems in effect, but the game really looks…like something. At least people get beaten up realistically enough, for a Double Dragon game that is.
Double Dragon: Neon is available on PlayStation Network for $9.99 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points.
Of course, if you go the Playstation Plus route, you can play Double Dragon: Neion free throughout January.
