Evil Avatar is reporting that Aksys, the company behind the development of popular strategy-fighter BlazBlue, is working on a forthcoming iOS re-vamp of the classic arcade game Double Dragon.

Featuring new animations, hand-drawn sprites, a remixed sound track and an control method, the developer is certainly making the right noises. But as ever, and here's where I sound like a broken record, the game will inevitably require the use of a virtual on-screen d-pad and face buttons which immediately rings alarm bells.

The one thing in its favour, however, is that The Simpsons on the iPhone was a similar 2D side-scrolling brawler and actually controlled surprisingly well.

With achievements, unlockable characters, new enemies and bosses and multiplayer via bluetooth if Aksys prices this right, i.e. £0.59/$0.99, then I'll put aside my reservations and download it in an instant.

Look out for its release in March, but in the meantime, why not check out the official Facebook page.

UPDATE: Check out some in-game footage below courtesy of our friends at TouchArcade. That Virtual D-pad and face-buttons takes up an awful lot of real-estate.
