Huge new update brings characters, modes and more to Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons

The latest Double Dragon title brought the property back from the dead, and has now gotten a healthy dose of fresh content.

Time to kick some butt again

Set in an apocalyptic NYC, Double Dragon Garden: Rise of the Dragons was released last year to both fan and critical acclaim (our review is here). The title was basically a soft-reboot for the long-lived IP, refining its side-scrolling action and adding a ton of replayability.

If you’ve played the game to death already, and if you’re a genre fan then you probably have, then we’ve got some good news. This week saw the release of the free Sacred Reunion DLC pack, which brings in a ton of new stuff, including new characters and modes. Oh, and did someone say online co-op?

Series veterans Ranzou, Chin Sei Mei and the third Lee brother himself – Sonny, are joining the fight alongside a host of new content, including the debut of online co-op. They can take on the campaign together or try out the new wave-based Survival Mode, providing an endless amount of action that ramps up with every round. Or, they can even turn on one another in the new 1v1 Versus Mode.

That’s not all Sacred Reunion brings to the fight. New upgrades, improvements, additional content and even a new difficulty mode make Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons the most powerful Double Dragon game yet. All of this content is available today at no additional cost.
