US Nintendo downloads: Double Dragon 2

Awesome NES fighter arrives on Wii Virtual Console

Dust off that Wii. It's time to play some Double Dragon 2, people.


The sweet NES brawler is the surprise treat of this week's US Nintendo downloads update list, nested among the usual selection of random kids games no one cares about.

In Double Dragon 2, Billy and Jimmy Lee return to rescue a girl from peril by jump-kneeing fat men off skyscraper roofs and out of helicopter doors, spin-kicking undead-looking ninja zombies in the face, and putting fools in headlocks. And the music's mint, too.
