Double Dragon IV hitting the PS4, PC later this month

To celebrate the franchise’s 30th anniversary, Arc System Works has recently announced that Double Dragon IV in development for the PS4 and PC, which is definitely good news.

While it’s looking kinda rough in the visual department based on the brief look of it we’ve have so far (due to the clash of styles more so than the retro look), we’re sure that with their pedigree and the involvement of some of the original Technos Japan developers and designers, it’ll be good. (right?)

So here’s a few screens/art and the announcement trailer!
