'Return of Double Dragon' Is Coming To SNES Compatible Devices In July

by Rainier on May 25, 2018 @ 12:06 p.m. PDT

Return of Double Dragon is the enhanced version of Super Double Dragon, only released in Japan after the original US version and contains many significant changes.

Arc System Works and Retroism announced that Technos Japan’s classic SFC brawler Return of Double Dragon will come to North America in a SNES compatible cartridge playable on most SNES compatible devices.

Return of Double Dragon is the enhanced version of Super Double Dragon, only released in Japan after the original US version and contains many significant changes. Now available for the first time on a SNES-compatible cartridge, fully playable in English.

The Return of Double Dragon cartridge contains an officially licensed ROM, obtained from and approved by the original makers, not an emulated version of the game. The packaging is just as spectacular, and will include a special red cartridge (first print run only), and a new exclusive Return of Double Dragon box!

First released in Japan in 1992, and long out of print, the Return of Double Dragon cartridge lets players once again play as Billy or Jimmy Lee, battling against the Shadow Warriors.


The game is exactly like it was in Japan at release:

  • 7 stages of pure action
  • Two distinctly different heroes with unique moves not found in the US version. 
  • Over 30 types of special moves
  • Rearranged soundtrack unique to Japanese version
  • A variety of weapons to pick up and use
  • Extra stages not found in the US version. 
  • Co-op play where a second player can drop in anytime!

“Double Dragon fans reach every corner of the world and we are beyond excited to bring this game to North America again in its original form, a spectacular 16-bit cartridge that fans will love” said, Jonathan Wan, CEO Tommo, Inc.

Return of Double Dragon is now available for pre-order on Amazon, and will be released on July 19, 2018.
