Double Dragon Now On XBLA

After a bit of a wait since it was first announced Double Dragon – first seen in arcades back in 1987 – has just appeared on the XBLA this morning and is now available for download. Just like always a demo version is available along with a full-version priced at the wallet friendly price of 400 Microsoft points (£3.40/€4.65). 12 Achievements and 200 Gamerpoints are also on show but you should expect that by now – really you should!

The story of Double Dragon is set in a post-apocalyptic version of New York City, five years after a Nuclear War, with gangs and criminal organizations running wild. The main protagonists are out to kick butt with their Sou-Setsu-Ken. One day, Billy’s girlfriend, a former student named Marian, is kidnapped off the street and the Lee brothers receive a letter from her captors, the Black Warriors, demanding to known the secrets of the Double Dragons in exchange for her release.
