    So what is super double dragon going to be considered as since this game is called double dragon 4 as i always thought of super double dragon as part 4.

    looks like dd1 or 2, i woulda chose a more dd3 look, and improved on it to make a 4
    its kinda odd in the trailer we see an evolution between the titles then 4 just looks like a devolution

    that being said my actual gripe is less on the look, more on the co-op, i want 4+ co-op, more games need a party vibe, sometimes there is more than just 2 players in a room at a time. as a kid there was always 3 people (me and my 2 brothers, or random assortment of friends) and our only option save for sports was Secret of Mana, and a few other titles, Double Dragon was definitely a title i wished we could play with more, especially since 3 had more than just billy and jimmy

    Well the game wasn't bad, besides i can't think of a single game wayforward games was involved with that anyone said they hated, Contra 4 on NDS, Duck Tales remastered, Double dragon neon... Even their own games never got any bad attention, shantae always seem like their greatest game, and mighty switch force is addictive puzzle game and fun for speed runs.

    To be honest, i dunno what to think, the technos japan company back in the day were the original pioneers of the 2d side scroll beat them up theme, with the Renegade and river city ransom games, fact is most of the games in that Nekketsu kouha kunio series look the same all the time, GBA river city ransom look like a 16 bit nes game, and look at the NDS and 3DS games. Nothing bad about it, i find it funny to be honest. :P

    I do wonder why they choose specific double dragon II sprites, of the 3 games on NES, maybe they would have picked the third game as it has more developement in the series? they probaly picked 2 cause no one liked the first or 3rd game, but is called double dragon IV, Isn't super double dragon IV the game they maybe should have based it off of more than the second? Maybe it was good to use NES sprites for cost reasons, maybe it was easier to make multi platform suppot, i dunno, but a ps4 and Steam only release? If they were gonna rip nes sprites, why not make 3DS port? Or even vita, or smart phone port?:unsure:
    Well yeah, this is a question that has me confused, i honestly have no idea fo it. Maybe it should have been based on the SNES game, maybe they can do like kingdom hearts did and call it Double dragon 4.5 Sequal to four, prequal to five :P
    So you want the Kung fu guy and ninja from the 3 game on nes to be part of this?:creep:
    As funny as it sounds, i agree it would have been cool, maybe even have marian or some other characters from that NEO GEO Game in here too. Maybe some river city ransom characters, or if on xbox, battletoads, they can also make that for pc since it can be windows port. :ninja:

    They're doing the same thing they did to Mega Man 9 and 10, using the old NES graphics. That's neat and all but I really wanted to see something like StarTropics III or Ninja Gaiden IV, reminiscent of 8-bit NES graphics.

    Sorry to mention but DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Been selling well for 4 years on DLC alone, so i doubt a ninja gaiden 4 will happen any time soon, but then again, there always was just a trilogy, never anything more outside some spin off titles like the sega ones and DAT ARCADE GAME. :glare:

    Maybe a Original Ninja gaiden trilogy SNES HD REMIX should happen, but not any time soon, as they been focused on the best sellers right now, too busy knee deep in DOA 5 Last round DLC to bother. :P
    Wasn't the company who used to own the title ip named Million? If i remember from playing the NDS games, they were even made by arc system works. seem stuff are falling into place. :)

    Personally, I don't mind pixel art, but I would've preferred them to use something that was a bit more SNES/Neo-Geo or Saturn-like. Kinda like Scott Pilgrim vs the World. Maybe when it's $2 on a steam sale.

    What a new DD game witch such graphics ? Are they kidding ?
    There are plenty of older games with better visuals. Man i thought the graphics for DD on the Neo-Geo where already bad at that time but this is really a joke.
    Good luck selling this crap i rather play Burning fight, Final Fight, Vendetta, The Punisher, cadilacs and dinasours, ( insert more games after ).
