“INVADE THE ENEMYS BASE”
After the success of Nekketsu Koha Kunio-kun and Renegade, Yoshihisa Kishimoto of Technos Japan set about outdoing himself with Double Dragon. The resulting two-player brawler would go on to spawn multiple sequels and spin-offs, as well as influencing every game in the genre that came after it. Leon, James, Karl and Michiel start at the beginning and work their way through as far as Technos’ demise and Double Dragon Advance. Contributions from the forum flesh things out as we try to pay lip service to the myriad successful and unsuccessful ports. A second Double Dragon podcast – issue 285 – will focus on Double Dragon Neon (2012), Double Dragon II: The Wander of The Dragons (2013) and Double Dragon IV (2017).
