Double Dragon Gaiden Gets 3 Characters From Double Dragon 3 on April 4

The three classic heroes will arrive alongside Gaiden's Survival and Versus modes.

Not long ago, Secret Base and Modus Games announced that Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons will be getting a free update with online co-op and three new characters on April 4. They didn't announce the identities of all three characters at that time, however. Now we know: Yagyu Ranzou, Chin Seimei, and Sonny Lee from Double Dragon 3 are the free DLC characters. I called it!

Let's look at the upcoming fighters. Yagyu Ranzou is a ninja from the NES and arcade versions of Double Dragon 3. Chin Seimei, a Chinese martial artist, originates from the same NES game. Sonny Lee is the most interesting, as he debuted in the unpopular arcade version of Double Dragon 3 and has only ever returned in Double Dragon IV before now. Sonny Lee is the brother of Billy and Jimmy Lee, but he will look and play differently than them in Gaiden. All three characters can be played in all of Gaiden's modes, including the Survival and Versus modes that will be added in the April 4 update.

Double Dragon Gaiden Sacred Reunion DLC

The "Sacred Reunion" DLC will be released on Thursday, April 4. We're looking forward to it! To learn more about Double Dragon Gaiden, see our co-op review and developer interview.

Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons sells for $24.99 digitally on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and Steam. Physical versions for Xbox, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Switch cost $29.99. The Steam version of Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons is fully Steam Deck compatible.
