The retrogaming necromancers at DotEmu have announced today that they will be bringing Billy and Jimmy Lee’s original face-busting entries back from the void and transplanting them onto iOS and Android devices in all of their original quarter-gulping glory with the Double Dragon Trilogy. The collection will feature the arcade classics Double Dragon, Double Dragon II: The Revenge, and the better-forgotten intercontinental slugfest Double Dragon III: The Rosetta Stone with an assortment of tweaks making this mobile beat ’em up better suited for mobile devices.
Fans who purchase this bare-knuckle bundle will receive the original 3 games with the addition of a new “story” mode which challenges players to unlock new stages and achievements while plowing their way through the game’s variety of urban arenas, fully customizable controls as well as the option to choose between the original 8-bit chiptunes or the new remastered score. The collection also features a tweaked mobile difficulty setting giving those who are new to beat ’em ups or struggle with touch screen controls a fighting chance, as well as the ability to play cooperatively via bluetooh.
Those of you who who refuse to play these ports without the option of a bluetooth controller will be happy to know that the game supports them, so dust off that iCade and get ready to experience some authentic arcade action when the game is released in the near future.
