Japanese 3DS Owners Can Download Double Dragon II Next Week

8-bit classic is punching its way to the 3DS eShop in Japan

Nintendo has confirmed that the popular side-scrolling fighter Double Dragon II: The Revenge will be coming to the Japanese 3DS eShop on 29th May, priced at 500 Yen.

Once again, the heroes of the hour are Billy & Jimmy Lee, who must avenge the brutal murder of Marian at the hands of the Black Warriors gang.

"It's basically a no-brainer for fans of Double Dragon to pick this title up," is what we said in our review of the Wii Virtual Console version of the game, which was released last year. "If for some reason you've never been a fan of the series, this Virtual Console release could very well change that."

Although a western release isn't confirmed at this stage, there's a good chance this could be coming over here too. Are you interested in picking this up on your portable? Post a comment to tell us.
