You may not be aware, but classic retro games such as River City Ransom and Super Dodge Ball are actually part of a long-running series in Japan, called Kunio-kun. And Arc System Works is getting ready to publish a whole collection, called Kunio-kun: The World Classics Collection. But there’s more to it than just the Kunio-kun series. Arc System Works has also announced that the Double Dragon trilogy will be included in the release.
Double Dragon, Double Dragon II, and Double Dragon III are part of the release in the “Related Titles” category, as the two series do share development and talent DNA.
