Steam Release In Store For Once Console-Only Double Dragon Neon

Hey, remember that Double Dragon remake that came out for consoles last September? Word from publisher Majesco is that the game will soon hit Steam with various improvements over its Xbox 360 and PS3 incarnations.

Double Dragon Neon will be released under Majesco's indie brand, Midnight City and will feature an "all-new" online co-op mode, according to the press release. As for the game proper, it'll have all the double-punching a person could want, as well as health sharing via high-fives (yay?).

While Double Dragon Neon fared poking and prodding by console critics in OK shape, the video doesn't make the game look terribly exciting. But then, comparing its pacing to something like the latest Street Fighter is probably unfair.

No word on price, but I'd hedge my bets on $US4.99-$US9.99, going from the screenshots and trailer.

    Great Co-op game with an awesome soundtrack.

    This was so beast, I still have my old cartridge some where and I got this when it was free on PS+.

    Me and the wife play this when the kids go to bed and there is nothing else to do..........

    Pretty cool game. I had fun with it and a friend. The health sharing is sweet.
