Technos produced two home versions of Double Dragon, one for the NES (released in 1988) and Game Boy (1990), both which were released in the west by Tradewest. These two versions differ from the arcade game due to the omission of cooperative gameplay and the addition of a competitive one-on-one versus mode. The NES version also altered the plot slightly by turning Jimmy Lee into the gang’s leader, forcing the player to fight him after defeating Willy.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Technos Japan released the NES version a year later in 1989, which was published in the west by Acclaim Entertainment. Unlike the NES version of the first game, cooperative gameplay was kept in this version, with the number of stages increased from four to nine and new attacks added to the player’s repertoire such as a flying knee kick and the hyper uppercut. The NES version also added cut scenes between stages, as well as a new final boss, after the player defeats their character’s clone in Stage 8.
Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone
The NES version, retitled Double Dragon III: The Rosetta Stone in Japan and Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones in the west, released a few months later in 1991, was developed internally by Technos and once again published in the west by Acclaim. In this version, the player begins game as Billy (with Jimmy, if played with a partner) and gains two additional characters (Chin Seimei and Yagyu Ranzou) by defeating them as bosses.
