Anybody playing this? I downloaded it today, and played a bit. But I have a bunch of stuff going on, and I can't really settle down for a game.
It seems fun and fluid. Reminds me of Scott Pilgrim, but without the painfully slow walking.

Simple at first, but you start getting moves pretty quick as you upgrade. The scores on the game seem good too.
Anyone had some proper time with this?

As of release, the PC version does not allow for keyboard rebinding and the default layout sucks (trying for "two players one keyboard").

Let me know if they ever patch that.

I'm tempted to pick it up, but I'm not too crazy over how the Kunio-kun characters and lore were handled (and I wasn't too crazy about Double Dragon Neon either, even though it was a FOTM darling). Some of the original Kunio creators are credited under "special thanks" but that doesn't really suggests any involvement from them. For all we know, they could just be paying lip service to them. The fact that it has a bunch of ecelebs voicing the characters, including the Game Grumps as the Double Dragons, is also a huge red flag to me (yet somehow they couldn't afford online co-op).

I would much rather have River City Underground on Switch, but failing that I'll give this a go, looks like a good time.

Goddammit, that's super gross. I didn't know that. I went ahead and ordered it last week on PS4 since I general enjoy their games. I'll voice my opinion when it gets here in like a month or whatever.

You can turn the voices off.
