Double Dragon and River City Ransom... now those are some names I haven't heard from in a long time. Spent many an hour in the arcade jump kicking my way through levels.

Not going to lie, I totally hit up his wiki and had flashbacks

Everyone needs to go fund this! This game was incredible on NES, and with Yoshihisa on the team no doubt this game will be incredible aswell.

Jump kick spam just chipping away health on your last quarter because your mom won't give you any more of them.

On topic: I would buy it, no doubt. Double so for vita.

I think the vita stretch goal is goin to be a tough one to grab for them. I totally see this on the PS4 even without hitting that goal

Me and a buddy used to love playing River City Ransom..

Question: Why is it taking Kickstarter to fund these games..

Big names attached to a Kickstarter is always a good sign.

A big endorsement doesn't always help, but this was a smart move
staticjoe  +   316d ago
Yeah, having an original dev will help them out a lot.
caution4  +   316d ago
Totally agree. This team seems to be all about the genre
XB1_PS4  +   316d ago
He wasn't an original dev for River City Ransom. He's was the Director for Double Dragon though. Which is the same genre.

Still remember playing Double Dragon 2 and 3 on the NES. It was the game that pushed me to get a placing in the top 3 of my class so that i can get a NES. Ended up second for that that year back in 1988 and as promised my dad bought me a NES and with Double Dragon 2 for christmas that year. I still remember the theme song in my head like it was yesterday.

There as was nothing like playing co-op on Double dragon then until Contra came along lol!.

There's listening to your fans and adding features, balancing, etc... and then there's going out and adding talent to your team after listening to fans. That's a pretty strong move by the Devs

Would be cool to see a team up of Double Dragon and River City Ransom....hell throw in Renegade!

xseven  +   316d ago
I think Yoshihisa Kishimoto does. Haha! So mashup confirmed! ... In a way

Wow, that's awesome to see!

This looks like a blast. I'll be watching for it.
XB1_PS4  +   316d ago
It might not even make the amount they need! I'm gonna go on my roof and start shouting. Maybe I can help.

I will never forget beating DD2. Epic multiplayer. Shattered beer bottle anyone?
