As you may be able to tell from some of the titles, despite being labeled a “brawler bundle,” there are plenty of genres covered here. Another thing worth pointing out is how great some of these classic little-known titles are. Every time I see “Downtown Special Kunio-kun’s Historical Period Drama!” I smile a little bit.
While this collection can help catch you up on the classic games, the Kunio-kun series is still going strong, with the recent entries like River City Girls and River City Ransom: Underground. The series has seen a renewed revival since Arc Systems Works bought the rights back in 2015. While you wait for the collection to launch, you can check out some concept art for a planned, but ultimately never produced Double Dragon cartoon that leaked last year.
