Capcom today announced that Final Fight: Double Impact would be hitting the Xbox Live Arcade in April 2010.
Final Fight: Double Impact offers gamers the chance to relive memories of yesteryear in HD by bringing two classic games to the service in one neat package.
The package houses both Final Fight and Magic Sword, two side-scrolling beat em ups that saw the light of day in 1989 and 1990 respectively. Each title will be playable in their upgraded HD glory or can be played in the classic and arcade cabinet modes. That's not all, expect leaderboards, online co-op and even a brand new soundtrack.
Final Fight: Double Impact is due on the Xbox Live Arcade in April 2010. Check out the newly released screenshots in the gallery here.
Not familiar with the originals? Then take a look at their short synopsis below:
"Final Fight: Double Impact is a dual release of two classic arcade side-scrolling beat-em-ups. First up is Final Fight, where players follow the heart-pounding adventures of Cody, Guy, and Haggar – three heroes fighting their way across crime-ridden Metro City in hopes of saving Haggar’s daughter from the evil clutches of Mad Gear. There are 6 stages filled with perilous challenges where the only hope for justice is the unique fighting techniques mastered by each character. With the news released last week that Cody and Guy will both be playable characters in Super Street Fighter IV, Capcom fans now have the chance to take a trip down memory lane and experience these characters in their first appearance before playing them in the new Street Fighter game."
"In Magic Sword, users will take on the role of the “The Brave One,” a fierce warrior who bears the daunting responsibility of cleansing evil forces from an ancient tower. As a consequence of his actions, he will inevitably meet the source of this scourge upon humanity – the dark lord Drokmar. But fear not as the hero is accompanied by eight allies who will lend their assistance through out the game. All of them bring specific skills and talents to contribute to the fight. It’s an amazing side-scrolling action illustrated in classic fantasy stylings, making a perfect pairing with Final Fight."
