Kakaomi Kaneko is producing the game, Yoshihisa Kishimoto is directing, Koji Ogata is designing the characters, Kazunaka Yamane is composing the music, and Kei Oyama is programming.
Arc System Works announced last year that it had acquired the rights to Double Dragon and a number of other Technos Japan games.
