So Yesterday IGN announced that Double Dragon was getting rebooted by Wayfoward this coming july under the name Double Dragon: Neon.

So I thought it would make sense to have a thread were we compared the originals to the remakes and other modern day sequels.
Franchises that have been Rebooted this way off the top of my head.

Castlevaina- Castlevaina rebirth and Lords of shadow
Contra- Hard corps uprising and Contra Rebirth
Bionic Commando- Bionic Commando and Bionic Commando re-armed
A Boy and His Blob- A boy and his Blob (wayfoward)
Shante- Shante's risky's revenge
Pac-man- Pacman Championship DX

WAT!

I am for sure keeping my eye Double Dragon Neon!

"Double Dragon: Neon is far from a standard retro remake. It’s WayForward’s love letter to the decade that spawned the franchise - the music, the style, and culture of the 80’s pulse through the nucleus of Double Dragon: Neon. But don’t think this is a simple graphical facelift; with our innovative ‘mix tape’ level up system and power-up high-fives, we pushed it to the limit!"

I want to know more about the "mix tape" leveling up system. I hope it includes some rockin' 80's tunes!

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

New Super Mario Bros, DKCR, Kid Icarus: Uprising. Punch-Out Wii. Most Excitebike games. The obvious ones.

Metal Gear Solid...I think. Ninja Gaiden. That 3d Shinobi no one remembers. Metroid Prime. The 3d ones.

Granted, I don't think reboot is a word that actually means anything anymore. Like innovation. Or epic.

Our reboot is the most epic innovative game this year. Lots of synergy with the social side of our business.

Art work is alright, needs more of an 80's Macho 'Van Damme' Double D Zing to it if you know what i mean. :p

Impressions however seem mixed to the delight of retro fans like Waveboy.

I'm completely against reboots when it involves wiping the slate clean with a franchise, as has been done with Castlevania. I don't see how companies can throw away over 20 years of video game history like that. Can anybody imagine if they did that with Zelda? All the fun of figuring out the timeline down the tubes, and the possibility of turning the series into something that doesn't close to capturing the original's magic (as with Castlevania). The reboot trend in gaming and Hollywood needs to be rebooted itself and GIVEN THE BOOT.

@Sony_70
DAT HEART TATTOO!!!!!! :O I'm tempted to try Neon, but I read a pretty bad review from IGN. Need more info first.

@FluttershyGuy: Did you read the review on Joystiq.com? http://www.joystiq.com/2012/09/10/double-dragon-neon-review/ That IGN review was like I was a reading a preview of the OKC Thunder written by a Seattle SuperSonics fan!

Mother needs a reboot...

I haven't lived as long as adults have
I have nothing but my bike and red hat
A smile a laugh
and you in my heart
As well as my baseball bat.
