Double Dragon & Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle coming west

Double Dragon & Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle

While Double Dragon is a household name to anyone in America who grew up playing games in arcades after school, the same can’t be said for the Kunio-kun series of brawlers. While both series are considered classics in Japan, only a handful of Kunio-kun games have come out overseas, with the most recent being the Western-developed spinoff River City Girls. Arc System Works has decided it’s time for the west to catch up on both series, though, and has revealed that the massive Double Dragon & Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle collection is coming to the west on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch this month.

The massive collection is a celebration of Double Dragon and Kunio-kun, a pair of long-running beat-em-up games that share a fair amount of characters and DNA. The collection includes every old-school entry in both series, with seven games that were previously available in America. The other 11 games in the collection, though, are classic Kunio-kun Family Computer Disk System games that are being localized for the first time ever with this release. The collection also includes 55 in-game missions that reward you with a variety of in-game nicknames and avatars, as well as general bragging rights.

The full list of included games is as follows:
