MonkeyPaw Games has specialized in helping bring various import games from Japan to Western countries. The publisher announced today that they would bring a new batch of PlayStation One-era imports stateside, as part of its 2014 Retro Rush, beginning with 1996's Double Dragon. The games will hit the PlayStation Store and be playable on PS3, Vita, and PSP.

You're probably familiar with the story of brothers Billy and Jimmy, but their PlayStation game strays quite a bit from their beat-'em-up roots. In fact, this is a one-on-one fighting game, based on the horrendous Double Dragon movie, which released in theaters the year before.

Double Dragon will kick off the Retro Rush offerings on January 14. Here's the full list of imports coming your way in the next six weeks.

  • January 14 - Double Dragon

  • January 21 - Lucifer Ring

  • January 28 - The Firemen 2: Pete and Danny

  • February 4 - Hyper Crazy Climber

  • February 11 - Wolf Fang

  • February 18 - Tomba! 2: The Evil Swine Return

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I'd like to see more PSone games come to the PS Store. Something about games from those era are great. It was just seeing the developers use all the space afforded by a cd-rom for the first time.

      I think its worth noting that the Playstation Double Dragon was a port of the Neo-Geo game.
