The last numbered Double Dragon title, entitled Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone, was released back in 1990. Now, after 27 years, Double Dragon 4 has finally been announced; and its coming to PlayStation 4 and PC on 30 January 2017, just in time for the franchise’s 30-year anniversary.

The classic side-scrolling beat ‘em up franchise’s developer, Technos Japan, closed its doors back in 1996, so it was unclear if we would ever see a fourth main entry. Thankfully, Japanese game developer Arc System Works now owns the assets and copyrights; and they seem to be putting it all to good use.
