Billy and Jimmy Lee have been pretty quiet for the last couple of years but they seem to be on track for a new revival. Barunson Interactive is developing a remake of the classic Double Dragon II: The Revenge but it will carry the new subtitle Wander of the Dragons. Instead of being a 2D remake, it’s gonna go full 3D with the environments and enemies. The gameplay will still remain the same of going from place to place, beating up a series of enemies with 2-player local co-op to boot. While it’s not an exact remake, it’ll have allusions to the original classic through some of the scenarios. It’ll also include new modes such as Survival and all-new playable characters if the Lee Brothers isn’t your thing. One thing unknown is if the co-op is online so fingers crossed you can beat up thugs with a buddy online in case he’s busy at home. Catch the video above and some new screenshots after the break, it’ll be hitting digital shelves this September for 1200 MSP.

An upcoming platform-adventure game, The Cave is the brainchild of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert. Channeling Gilbert’s earlier work, The Cave employs classic adventure-style gameplay within an action-platform framework. While we expect The Cave to release this month, an official release date has not yet been announced.
We had an exceptionally late episode last week, but we’re making up for it this week with possibly the most punctual episode yet! The usual cast of myself, John Laster and Andrew Crews are joined by Deputy Editor Steve Melton to discuss all things XBLA.
It’s a very slow news week this week so we spend more time that we should discussing just why we don’t want yet another Worms game on XBLA.
Things take a better turn when we hit the what we’ve been playing and twitter topic segments, in which there is some pretty interesting discussion of topics ranging from retro remakes to the often discussed friends list limit.[podcast]https://xblafans.com/xblafancast/XBLAFancastEp24.mp3[/podcast]
