Double Dragon on XBLA this week

After months and months of waiting Empire Interactive has confirmed that Double Dragon is finally coming to Xbox Live Arcade this week.

In case you've got no idea what we're on about (you weirdo), Double Dragon is a classic side-scrolling beat-em-up set in the lovely city of Detroit. Two brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee, masters of a mystical martial art, travel the streets beating up rivals and anyone who looks at them funny for no particular reason.

The Arcade version of the much-loved bruiser will be Empire's XBLA debut, expectedly sporting both an untouched arcade port and a new version with tinkered graphics and sound.

There's no word on the cost yet, though we're expecting it to arrive at around 400 Microsoft points ($5.00).
