Double Dragon Trilogy Released to Google Play, Take a Step Back Into the 80s

It’s time to get your healthy dose of the Double Dragon Trilogy. In this crazy-popular co-op arcade title from the 80s, which has been specifically optimized for mobile devices, you help two martial arts experts save a girl from baddies. This one title actually combines all three of the Double Dragon games, including Double Dragon 2: The Revenge, and Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone. 

If you played this game back in the day, you will see that all of the old school moves have been included, and this is a great recreation/tribute to the original DD. Check out the full feature list down below.

The game runs at $3, which for all three DD titles in one, that’s a pretty good deal.


  • Two game modes: “Arcade” (play the game from beginning to end and go for the high score) and “Story” (unlock new stages and achievements while playing through the game)
  • Customizable controls
  • Three difficulty levels: “mobile” (specially balanced for mobile games), “original” (similar to the arcade version) and “expert” (a real challenge!)
  • Achievements & leaderboards via Game Center and Google Play Game Service
  • Choose between the original 8-bit soundtrack and a brand-new remastered one!
  • Co-op mode (two players) via bluetooth
  • Gamepad support: compatible with most Android controllers and soon with most iOS controllers too

    I’m in. I still remember playing double dragon back in the 80’s. I miss those days. Thanks again Samsung for the $50 play credits.

    I wish this was co-op over WAN. No one in my house would ever play this with me.

    I dropped hundreds of quarters into Double Dragons machines as a teen. I may get this just for the nostalgia.

  • TubbyMofo

    Blah. Final Fight or GTFO. TMNT arcade or Gauntlet arcade with 4 player over Bluetooth would be awesome as well.

  • Steve Oreno

    OR, you can just get the NES emulator off google play, and get these games for free….and any other Nintendo game you ever loved.

    • Manthas

      Except as this is not the NES games, but the original arcade games, you could track down an arcade emulator and set of ROMs, or you could purchase a legal copy from a dev that has obviously done a fantastic job porting over the game to Android.

    It’s worth noting that DOTEMU has discounted their other games for a limited time to celebrate the release of Double Dragon Legacy. I’ll probably pick up Another World (same as Out of this World from the early ’90s) since it’s half price at $1 now!

    I’m going to wait for Bad Dudes!

    I would love it if they did the same thing with Ninja Gaiden. I loved those games.

  • Chase Chick

    How much was Double Dragon when it originally came out?

    • Kyle Miller

      $4000, or a quarter. Depends on your budget.

  • Menger40

    Bluetooth co-op? That is awesome.

  • Mitchman

    I need Battletoads: Double Dragon!

    • enigmaco

      Battletoads would be awesome!

      • Hoodie hoo

        Battletoads would be awesome, that is, until you get to the turbo tunnel.
