Double Dragon | Palette Swap | NES vs Arcade BraselTheGamer *Classic Gaming, Brasel The Gamer, Palette Swap, Videos Double Dragon was originally released in arcades in the summer of 1987, and saw an NES release in the US almost a full year later. I played Double Dragon on the NES quite a bit as a kid. I knew there was an arcade game, but I honestly never came across the cabinet until I was an adult. I’ve been wanting to play Double Dragon lately, and since I hadn’t done a Palette Swap video in awhile, I figured now was a great time to do it. Let’s take a quick look at both games before we jump into the comparison. Check out my YouTube channel!
