Press release:
December 10, 2020.
The video game developer and publisher Majesco Entertainment and indie games developer WayForward are today very pleased and proud to announce that their cult classic co-op beat-em-up “Double Dragon Neon” is coming to the Nintendo Switch on December 21st, 2020.

Players will once again control totally radical martial artists Billy & Jimmy Lee on a weird, wild side-scrolling brawler to rescue their friend Marian from the clutches of the villainous magical skeleton Skullmageddon – he’s bad to the bone.

Players will punch, kick, and High Five their way through goon-packed city streets, haunted forests, secret labs, and even Skullmageddon’s barely-hidden SPACE DOJO. Take down legions of expendable but enthusiastic bad guys, including the frequently palette-swapped and reskinned Williams, the whip-cracking Linda, and legendary heavyweight Abobo. Tip the odds in your favor by collecting skill-enhancing retro mixtapes and mastering the Gleam system, turning perfect evasions into powerful counter-attacks.
Built from the ground up for co-op play, the bravest of martial artists can go solo, but Double Dragon: Neon is best with another hero on the couch. Don’t worry about your teammate ‘accidentally’ stealing all your power-ups either. Players can share health with a high five, or psych their partner out with a low five and steal some, if you’re feeling less than righteous.
Inspired by the Saturday morning cartoons of the late 80s and early 90s Double Dragon is the iconic side-scrolling brawler adventure of Jimmy and Billy Lee. It’s been a long time coming since its original 2012 launch and 2014 Steam re-release. It’s time to get ready, to grab a buddy, and a 2-liter soda and party like it’s 1987 when Double Dragon: Neon launches on Nintendo Switch, December 21 for NA with an EU release to come in the weeks following.

Features:

An 80s classic reimagined through the lens of neon nostalgia!
Brawl through ten stages solo or with a buddy in local co-op.
Time your dodges perfectly for stylish ‘Gleam’ counter-attacks.
What game has a dedicated High Five button? This one!
The greatest skeletal villain this side of ‘80s cartoons – Skullmageddon!
All the bone-related puns you can stand! They’re very humerus!
Punch all the things! Robots! A giant tank! Your own mutant clone!
A toe-tapping, genre-hopping soundtrack by Jake ‘Virt’ Kaufman.
