Special features producer Richard Schenkman and I worked tirelessly to create some amazing brand new bonus material that includes a feature-length “making of” documentary that I know collectors will love. These new bonus features, along with some great archival bonus material, and the addition of the pilot of the Double Dragon animated television series (courtesy of Invincible Entertainment) MVD is proud to present the definitive edition of Double Dragon in a kick-ass (pun intended) Blu-ray + DVD combo pack collector’s set.”
