Double Dragon Neon is a modern revamp of Technos' classic genre-defining brawler series available on PSN and Xbox Live. It keeps the series' punch/kick button setup but adds a throw button and gets rid of a lot of moves like knees to the face. However, it adds an RPG element where you have a stance that affects your stats as well as an upgradeable special attack that costs energy. It has a humorous style and an excellent 80's rock soundtrack composed by Jake Kaufman.
This game was made by WayForward, who also made Contra 4, another modern take on a beloved classic franchise.
If you talk to the shopkeeper, he mentions how the Dragons used to grab enemies by the hair and knee them in the face. This is basically the developers hanging lampshades around the fact that they removed one of the series' most iconic attacks.
Double Dragon Neon is a poor modernization of the franchise. It removed the iconic hair-pull technique and replaced it with lame RPG elements that necessitate grinding. The enemy variety is awful, and the 3D graphics look way worse than the awesome concept art. At least the core combat is generally well-designed and the music is off the chain.
