Double Dragon: Neon is a reboot of the 1987 arcade original developed by masters of all things retro WayForward Technologies, and it’s just gone gold. The game has reportedly gone gold for its 11th September launch on PSN and 12th September on XBLA. PS Plus members can also get it for free from the 12th.
The studio has revealed a new batch of screens to mark the occasion, and we’ve chucked in the most recent trailer too. Enjoy.

If the entire gaming industry is a testosterone-packed game of economic dodge ball, Majesco’s the tiny circle of girls that stands in the middle of the field chatting, obviously above the barbaric spectacle surrounding them. Why? Because, in this Harsh Economic Climate, Majesco’s managed to somehow post a 75.8 percent jump in net revenues and a 54 percent income boost.
“Our success was driven by strong demand across our product line, specifically for our Cooking Mama titles and the newly released Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum 2009, which has become a hit with approximately 500,000 copies sold to date,” said CEO Jesse Sutton.
“We are well positioned to capitalize on the increasing demand for family friendly mass market games, the fastest growing segment of the industry, which in part is being driven by the success of Nintendo’s platforms.”

Majesco probably can’t believe its luck. The Cooking Mama franchise, now a Wii and DS favourite, has acheived US sales of 1.6 million units with games like the original Cooking Mama for DS (September 2006 launch), Cooking Mama: Cook Off for Wii (April 2007 launch) and Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends (November 2007 launch). That’s a whole world of cooking.
“The success of Cooking Mama has been akin to catching lightning in a bottle,” said Majesco CEO Jesse Sutton. “A unique concept, iconic main character and gameplay execution that fully utilizes the stylus and Wii Remote have proved to be a winning combination. We appreciate the continued support from all of Mama’s fans and look forward to launching the fourth title in the franchise later this year.”
A sequel to Cooking Mama: Cook Off is releasing for Wii later this year. 505 handles Cooking Mama in Europe. No idea if it’s been as popular over here. Maybe someone should ask.
