Double Dragon IV for PS4 delayed to unannounced date in Japan

Western release seemingly unaffected.

Double Dragon IV

The Japanese edition of the PlayStation 4 version of Double Dragon IV has been delayed from its planned launch today to an unconfirmed release date as a result of “unforeseen circumstances,” Arc System Works announced. The Steam version will still launch as planned in Japan on January 31.

The headline of Arc System Works’ news release specifies the delay is for the “Japanese edition” of the PlayStation 4 version, so the western release is seemingly unaffected. Double Dragon IV is planned for launch across PlayStation 4 and Steam in the west later today.
