I have been expecting to see some Nintendo IP come across at some point given the relationship the two companies have had lately, but this is pretty slim pickings to be fair.
After Cuphead and Ori going across I am still hoping for something a little more high profile.
Well this came out of left field. I used to love the original Double Dragon.
@HydroTendonMan These aren't Nintendo's I.P. they were Technos which shut down in the Mid 90's and now they are owned by Arc System Works. Nintendo has nothing to do with these games.
This is just parts of the Kunio-kun Collection that came out last month on PS4 and the Switch. Why they are selling them separate on Xbox is odd instead of the whole collection.
A very nice surprise indeed! 😊
You misunderstand. This is Technos, not Nintendo.
Edit: Ninja'd by Tasuki. 🙎
Not bad - a Little Nes action on the Xbox. Having said that, I’d prefer to see the real Double Dragon Arcade games from Hamster instead
These games have some of the most stupid achievement lists I’ve ever seen. About half of the achievements for each game are for changing different settings in the options menu... Like, turn on reverb in the sound options, 100 gamerscore! Adjust the scanlines, 100 gamerscore!
Arc System Works should be ashamed of these achievements.
@Tasuki My bad, I saw NES and assumed without properly looking into them. Thanks!
