Set for release in September 2016 the new Yggdrasil Double Dragons online slot game has me tentatively excited, let me explain why. For those of us who grew up with the very first video games, no doubt you will remember the Double Dragon Arcade game. This was one of my favourite ‘beat em up’ platform games and when Bally announced a Double Dragon video slot, I assumed it would be based on that game, much to my disappointment it wasn’t.
So with Yggdrasil announcing virtually the same game name, there is another crack at the cherry on the table, I’m fervently hoping their new video slot is based on the classic arcade game rather than another Asian themed slot game release. Also, if I could choose any developer to do that game, it would be Yggdrasil, who are leading the market at the moment in terms of technology and game play for online slots, in many ways having eclipsed even NetEnt.
It’s an Yggdrasil title, so we know the audio and visuals will be stunning, their last Asian release, the Monkey King slot game, is absolutely stunning to play from an entertainment point of view. Another Yggdrasil benchmark is their selectable bonus options, giving players more setup choice than some providers, we are hoping that continues with the new game also.
Even if Yggdrasil take the traditional oriental slot game approach with the new Double Dragons slot I’m sure it will still be a great game, I just really hope they bring that classic arcade game into the online casino world!
