Double Dragon & Kunio-kun: Retro Brawler Bundle gets English trailer

double dragon kunio-kun

When Double Dragon & Kunio-kun: Retro Brawler Bundle was revealed to be coming out in Japan, it seemed like the type of game that would never see a localization. That was proven wrong earlier this month, though, when it was confirmed that the massive beat-em-up bundle would be arriving overseas for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on February 20. Now, a brand new trailer for the classic compilation shows off all of the never-before-localized old-school hits to be included in the release.

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.
