Double Dragon 2 remake

Post by HalcyonDaze00 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 5:51 pm

finally set to be released?
Nearly two year ago a remake of Double Dragon 2 was announced by Korean studio Barunson Interactive that was supposed to come out autumn of that year. Mysteriously, that never happened and no one heard a peep about the MIA remake, Double Dragon 2: Wander of the Dragons, until now as a series of achievements for it leaked at Xbox360Achievements.

This suggests that the game is not only still underway, but actually on the cusp of release. It's been awhile though, and in the interim we've had WayForward's XBLA and PSN reboot Double Dragon Neon.

As of July 2011 Wander of the Dragons was set to cost 1200 Microsoft Points, though it's unclear if it will still launch for that price after such a delay
it didnt look brilliant back in 2011, lets hope they looked at Neon and put a bit more work in.........

I dunno. When they actually had gameplay footage of this, it looked pretty... generic, honestly. I mean, it didn't look terrible, but it didn't really look like something anybody would have missed too much if it got cancelled. I mean, there's the chance that the gameplay will be good, but I still think Neon's style will mean it edges out over this.

it was supposed to but never got released, not sure if they have just sat on it for two years or it's actually been updated and improved
