Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons Brings Tag Team Action

Double Dragon Gaiden

The Legend Continues - Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons Brings Tag Team Action to PC and Consoles This Summer from Modus Games

Billy and Jimmy Lee Return Beside All-New Playable Characters for a Hard-Hitting, Modernized Celebration of the Genre-Evolving Beat ‘Em Up 

Modus Games and developer Secret Base roundhouse kick down the doors today in announcing Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons, a co-operative beat ‘em up featuring tag team duos of fighters infused with roguelite elements to deliver classically informed, highly replayable Double Dragon-style brawls with a new edge. Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons will revitalize the iconic franchise when it hits PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5 and PS4 this summer. 

New York City in the year 199X: the city has been devastated by nuclear war. Its citizens fight for survival as riots, crime and chaos flood the streets. Criminal gangs terrorize what remains as they vie for dominance. Unwilling to endure these conditions any longer, young Billy and Jimmy Lee take it upon themselves to reclaim their city. 

Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons gives players incredible, seamless tag team abilities and a multitude of strategies for devastating combos, defensive and offensive moves across the game’s 13 unique playable characters.  

Series icons Billy and Jimmy Lee are joined by Marian, returning as a fully realized, firearm-wielding ranged fighter, and newcomer Uncle Matin, a riot-shield-wielding powerhouse. Tag in and out as the classic Lee duo or switch it up with different characters. With two-player local co-op, the action quadruples as you and a friend clean up the mean streets. 

Endless playthrough possibilities are made a reality with the game’s dynamic mission select function - the order in which you choose your mission will affect the mission length, number of enemies, and overall difficulty. Players choose between missions housed within city sectors, pursuing the leaders of four deadly gangs across unique stages packed with melee weapons, dangerously devoted members and varied environments perfect for all-out fights. 

Cash is earned by using a Special KO on opponents, while health boosts are earned by performing Crowd Control moves, which are special KOs that knock out multiple enemies at once. Spend cash at the end of each stage to unlock powerful upgrades for your chosen characters or choose to save up your cash. Experiment with different duos, pursue alternate builds for your fighters through upgrades and change the order in which they challenge the city’s sinister gang leaders.

Should a session end in defeat, players can convert any remaining cash into tokens usable to permanently unlock extra characters and bonuses in between sessions, making every battle serve a purpose. But buying a Continue with that token to instead extend a promising round of gang-slugging action is worth considering, too...

Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons recalls the series’ classic aesthetic with refreshed pixel art visuals, sporting updated-yet-faithful appearances for both returning heroes and villains and a stirring soundtrack that keeps players ready for the next fight. With unlockable bonuses, adjustable difficulty levels, optional permadeath and infinite modes, Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons is a robust revitalization of the series’ signature side-scrolling action. Online co-op is planned as a post-launch update later this year.
