Game Profile

Double Dragon is the story of Billy and Jimmy Lee, twin brothers who learned to fight on the cold, tough streets of the city.

Their expert knowledge of the martial arts combined with their street-smarts has made them both formidable fighting machines.

It's definitely got a steep difficulty curve, but with enough persistence is it possible to complete, but it is definitely made easier of course with help from a friend. I wonder if this game will be 2 player on the 3DS VC?
