Double Dragon 2 remake spotted for XBLA, subtitled ‘Wander of Dragons’

It seems as though a 3D remake of the classic Double Dragon 2 arcade game will be making its way to Xbox LIVE Arcade in September courtesy of Barunson Interactive in Korea.

For fans that care, this remake is based off of the arcade version of Double Dragon 2: The Revenge and will go for $15 on release. Here’s an extensive in-game video showcasing the Wander of Dragons in action:

Team Meat’s next game teased in crazy kazoo ‘video’

Creators of Super Meat Boy, Team Meat have supposedly revealed clues as to the developer’s next game. Those clues (or clue) are well hidden in an incredibly zany video featuring the maddening kazoo music you would probably recognise from similarly maddening Benny Hill videos.

If you’re a Team Meat super fan, prepare yourself to tolerate the video below to discover those clues: or just wait until the game is officially announced and spare yourself some sanity:

Anarchy Reigns gets a story, and heart, in new trailer

The next action-heavy title from Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Vanquish) has received a brand new trailer revealing an actual story that aims to weave the game’s disparate characters together: and it’s looking pretty epic!

Up until now, Anarchy Reigns has seemed like a mish-mash of brutal brawling and sequences of arena battles with a focus on multiplayer action, but with this new trailer there’s hope yet for a story-focussed component to the game.

Watch below and decide for yourself:
