Double Dragon 3D Title Announced by Arc System Works, Launches in 2025

The long-running beat ’em up series Double Dragon is getting a new title courtesy of Arc System Works. In the latest Weekly Famitsu, the developer confirmed the title would be in 3D and launch in 2025 for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, PC, Xbox One and PS4.

The new title will feature side-scrolling combat but with adjusted difficulty and controls. Alongside Jimmy and Billy Lee, recurring enemies like Roper and Abobo will also appear (though it’s unknown if the latter will be unlockable for playing). Further information, like the name, has yet to be revealed, so stay tuned for more details in the coming months.

Secret Base’s Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons is the last title in the series, released in 2023 as a spin-off. Though it lacked online co-op at launch (later added in the expansion Sacred Reunion in 2024), it allowed two players to choose from up to 13 characters.
