Mike haggar wants you to control every inch of his body.

But he just wants to be friends! Honestly! Now hand him the lotion before he caves your skull in.

Okay, you do get to control American Zangief, and it'll be in a new Xbox Arcade/PSN game. Final Fight: Double Impact is a dual reboot of two classic Capcom fighters: Final Fight and Magic Sword. If you ever spent a lot of time in arcades in the early 90's, then you know what's in store here: beat up a bunch of dudes, go right, beat up more dudes, go right again, ect. It's hard to believe such a simple premise would eventually birth the Street Fighter games, but greatness can be born out of simplicity, I guess.

Anywho, back to the games. Both are getting a graphics and music overhaul, as well as some nostalgic features. Sure, you can play it normally on you TV. But, you can also go old school and play it inside a virtual cabinet, just so you can remember the smoke and booze filled arcade you crushed many an opponent in before. Let's not forget on-line co-op, as well as a drop-in feature, where you can join any game in progress. friend or stranger alike.

The game will pop onto Arcade/PSN and cost you 800 MS points/$9.99 respectively. Some neat screenshots after the jump. Also, to anyone complaining that I turned Mike Haggar into a prison rapist, let me just point out that I'm not the programmer who put in a post-op transsexual as a villan. Seriously, go look it up.
