Double Dragon: Neon Hits Steam

Moves forward, hits it again, then throws it across the screen.

Wayforward's bro-op brawler Double Dragon: Neon hit XBLA and PSN in the fall of 2012, but PC owners can finally get their knuckles dirty with their very own Steam version of the game! The best part is it supports both local and online co-op out of the box. If it had a box, of course.

A throwback to the classic '80s brawlers, Double Dragon: Neon is a love letter to nostalgia. Its brand of loving includes a lot of punching, kicking, rolling, throwing, dashing, combination punch/kicks, and everything in-between. We're ok with that, as some genres never get old. Especially not when they're reinvented with this much care.

Neon is very much like the original Double Dragon games, with a few modern tweaks to make it fit in with the cool kids. One such tweak is the mix tape feature that allows players to string attacks together for epic combos. The whole "bro-op" thing has a purpose, too. Players can initiate high fives during the game, and depending on which way you hold the stick, different abilities will be activated. In true '80s style, you can even fake each other out. That never gets old, either.

Double Dragon: Neon is available for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC via Steam. It supports two player online or local co-op. Sorry, bro-op. Be sure to check out the trailer above. It's cowabunga radicool.
