Billy and Jimmy are taking no prisoners

Nintendo of Japan has confirmed that the Famicom (NES to you and me) version of Double Dragon is coming to the 3DS eShop next week - February 6th, to be exact. It's set to retail for 500 Yen (approximately £3.50 / $5.50).

The 8-bit classic is one of the seminal side-scrolling fighters of all time, and is based on the 1987 coin-op original. You can read our review of the Wii Virtual Console edition here.

That means we can expect a western release in the near future - will you be laying down some cash for this pugilistic masterpiece?
