Double Dragon Collection

Among the multitude of franchises that have left an indelible mark on the gaming industry, the Double Dragon series stands as a shining example of the enduring appeal of beat ’em-up games.

The original Double Dragon debuted in 1987 as an arcade game, and its premise was simple yet enticing. Players assume the roles of martial artist brothers, Billy and Jimmy Lee and set out to rescue Billy’s girlfriend, Marian, who has been abducted by a ruthless gang. The game also features a two-player co-op mode. The first installment established a foundation for what would become a beloved series known for its engaging gameplay and memorable characters.

Its contribution to the evolution of beat ’em up games is enormous. The franchise pioneered the concept of incorporating narrative elements into a genre that was initially more focused on action and combat. Subsequent entries in the series expanded on the story, delving into the complexities of the Lee brothers’ relationship. And even introducing new characters with their own motivations and histories. Above all, this narrative evolution added an extra layer of depth, captivating players beyond the immediate satisfaction of pummeling enemies.

Check out the trailer below and relive the nostalgia of the popular series.
