Double Dragon on the NES

Since things seemed to be taking a turn for the better on the Virtual Console lately, it is a little disheartening to reveal that Nintendo today bumped the updates back down to a single title.  Or, it would be if there was even the slimmest chance that anyone really cared.  But, in a week seeing the release of the next Mario Kart and Grand Theft Auto, odds are few people are looking to see what’s coming by way of digital distribution.  However, to those misguided souls too passive to even launch a blue shell, let alone blind-fire an RPG, you...well, probably won’t get much use out of this news either, as today’s addition is none other than the classic beat-‘em-up Double Dragon (NES).  The official description for the title can be found below:

Double Dragon (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated Everyone 10+ — Mild Violence, 500 Wii Points): Double Dragon begins with Billy Lee’s girlfriend, Marian, being kidnapped by a group called the Black Warriors. They demand to know the secrets of Billy’s martial-arts style in exchange for his girlfriend. However, Billy won’t stand for these underhanded tactics and decides to rescue her himself. Help him fight through city streets, buildings, jungles, temples and various other locations in a quest to find his girl. He’ll gain experience by using different fighting techniques to obtain more hearts, which will unlock more powerful techniques to use against his enemies. Keep an eye out for crates, boulders, whips, bats, knives and even dynamite along the way, as Billy can also use them to annihilate opponents. Armed with his mysterious and powerful martial arts, help Billy pummel his way through an array of goons, gang members and other Black Warrior scum to free Marian from their clutches.
