Rage of the Dragons gets a modern re-release across Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. A release date wasn’t confirmed.
The game was originally released in arcades and for Neo Geo back in September 2002, and was developed by BrezzaSoft, Evoga, and Noise Factory. The game was originally envisioned as a sequel to the Technos Japan-developed Double Dragon fighting game spinoff, however the team was unable to get the license, so it was turned into an homage to Double Dragon instead.
Here’s a new trailer:
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Rage of the Dragons is a 2002 tag team head-to-head fighting game released for the Neo Geo, in which the player takes control of two characters and can switch between one or the other during gameplay.
The character who is not being controlled will slowly recover part of his or her energy while the other is fighting. The player can perform special combos in which both characters attack an opponent at the same time for added damage.
An auxiliary meter located at the bottom of the screen that slowly fills up when an attack connects with an opponent. When the meter is full, special moves can be performed (Ex: Counter Attacks, Super Moves, etc.).
