This is the first time I’ve heard of this game after not playing any video games for about 10 years. I just YouTubed it and it gives me a lot of nostalgia. The game seems to play a lot like the Double Dragon Arcade game I loved back in the late 80s. Anyone who’s played this, is that accurate? It might be one I need to buy.

It’s definitely in the same genre, Beat Em Up. You should check out Streets of Rage 4 as well, if you haven’t. Beautiful art, beautiful ost, and one of my favorite co-op games in recent memory. My cousin and I ran through it and it has that arcade feel. Pretty dope to see this genre in a resurgence.

Awesome! Thanks for the recommendation. I will check that one out too.

The River City and Double Dragon games share the same DNA - both were created by Technos. River City Girls even has some Double Dragon characters in it running the shops (and that big bald guy, Abobo, from the first level as a boss). My personal favorite version of the original Double Dragon is Double Dragon Advance. Try it on a GameBoy Advance emulator sometime!

What exactly makes the PS5 version any different than the PS4 version?

I saw that it was on sale on the PSN store.

I just got the ps4 version. I honestly don't know what they could possibly change for ps5.

Yeah, the Switch version even runs great. It's not exactly a demanding game.

No physical release huh?

The physical release is due out in the first quarter of this year. But there's no specific date yet.

Cool I’ll wait till then
