Double Dragon II 3D Remake Headed to XBLA

Double Dragon II: The Revenge, the old Technos Japan beat-em-up from 1988, is being revived for a 3D remake on Xbox Live Arcade. Now known as Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons, the game is based on the arcade version, not the reworked NES one, and is being developed by Barunson Interactive for release this September.
 According to Co-Optimus, Wander of the Dragons will have entirely new art but still features the old brothers, Billy and Jimmy Lee, as well as many of the old enemies and weapons (those available include knives, grenades, and two-by-fours) fans will remember. A new combo system and diving knee kick move is joined by the return of the old cyclone kick, making it sound as if the game will offer a bit more nuance than a direct port would allow for.
It’ll need that depth with a 1,200 Microsoft Point ($15) price tag. Besides a four-player Versus mode and Survival mode (where players fight off waves of enemies for as long as possible), the Story mode features two-player co-op support. However, Co-Optimus says online play has yet to be guaranteed, which could be a really damper on what otherwise sounds like an intriguing remake.
