“Marian! Aw, man; not this again.”
A subtly different show this issue as Leon, James and Michiel consider three different approaches to reviving or renewing an existing (dormant?) IP. Double Dragon Neon, Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons and Double Dragon IV are the test subjects as the panel give their views on the positives and negatives of the ‘affectionate pastiche’, the ‘modern update’ and the ‘retro styled’ reboot/sequel.
Music used in this issue:
1. Double Dragon IV Main Theme by Kazunaka Yamane
2. End Credits (Dare to Dream) by Jake Kaufman
