Here's reason to high-five. WayForward's take on the Double Dragon franchise is coming soon. And best of all, it will be included in PlayStation Plus' "Instant Game Collection" when it launches.

The game will be available on PS3 on September 11th for $9.99. (Presumably, it will be 800 Microsoft Points when launching on Xbox Live Arcade.) However, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download it for "free" as part of their membership until January.

Here's the retro throwback in action--in bro-op, of course:

      Great idea ruined by poor execution.

      80s themed(visually and musically) old school double dragon game? Awesome.

      Shit graphics and slow movement/gameplay? Ruined.

      I've never seen so many people around an arcade game than when Double Dragon hit the arcades, great times :(

        that was Mortal Kombat II for me. man, those were epic times. I see it as a strange parallel to what we do now in this information age of gaming. Except it was happing face to face.

        I remember seeing the crowd around the MK2 machine, watching. A guy is tearing up the computer, and some kid squeezes through and pops in his tokens. . He waits until the player is about to lose a match, then hits start - thus "saving" him. It was an act of courtesy, and almost everyone at my arcade did this. It was like the "GG" of the time, but far more meaningful and intimate.

          the arcade crowds were pretty damn massive in the age before PvP fighting games, the only crowd that came close was Dragon's Lair.

          I remember playing MK2 with a jacket over my hands, people would beg to know the moves!

        For me it was SF2 or SF2CE (its been so long I can't remember exactly)...they had shit loads of SF2 cabs and tons of people playing them when my Mom took me to the Morgantown Mall to see the batmobile (it was actually some copy some dude made and was touring the country with to coincide with the release of Batman Returns as I remember...but I could be wrong)...and they had a great arcade and just shitloads of folks were playing that. I also remember going to the Babbages or EB (think it was Babbages)...and seeing Contra 3 (which just came out) on an SNES kiosk and playing that and thinking how awesome it would be to get an SNES (that I was saving up for).

          Actually it would have been out for a while...since Contra released months before Batman...and I remember being at the mall in summer (and seeing Batman Returns either that night or one soon after).
