The 3DS's Renegade remake is, thankfully, better than Renegade

When news came out that Million, a company made up of people who worked on River City Ransom and the other games in the Kunio-kun series, would remake the first game in said series, I found it bittersweet in the extreme(s). On the one hand, I like Kunio games a bunch; on the other hand, Renegade...

Arc System Works planning new Kunio game for 3DS

Arc System Works and developer Million, a group of former Technos employees, have resurrected the Kunio series (which we know best from River City Ransom) in recent years with DS-based games like Super Dodge Ball Brawlers, River City Soccer Hooligans, and River City Sports Challenge. Now, the...

Aksys resurrects 'River City' name for DS sports games

The latest announcement from Aksys games includes two surprises. It doesn't come as a shock that the company would choose to localize Kunio-kun no Chou Nekketsu Daiundokai (Kunio's Extreme Hot-Blooded Athletic Meet) for DS -- Aksys is fairly reliable about picking up everything Arc System Works...

Japanese Nintendo downloads: Nothing this week, arcade classics next week

This week, there are no updates on the Japanese Wii Shop, due to the Obon holiday. Now we know why last week's update was so massive -- it more than compensated for a week off! The Virtual Console, at least, will return next week with four new games. No announcement has been made for WiiWare yet,...

Would you like to know what the sports are in the new multi-event Kunio sports game? Of course you would! We're going to pretend that the cool reception that met Super Dodgeball Brawlers didn't happen, and the world is exhibiting the correct and expected frothing demand for a new Kunio sports game...

Kunio-kun returns to DS -- now in 3D

A small scan in the latest Famitsu has brought something fairly glorious to our attention: a new Kunio-kun game. Kunio-kun no Chou Nekketsu! Daiundokai (Kunio-kun's Super Hot-Blooded! Big Athletic Meet) is a multiple-sports game similar to Nekketsu Koushin Kyoku: Soreyuke Daiundoukai and the game...

VC Tuesday: Capcom rocks

Capcom traditionally lends lots of support to every system, no matter how well or poorly they are doing. Games like Marvel vs. Capcom, Mars Matrix, and Power Stone helped make the Dreamcast worth owning, for example. So it's no surprise that the Wii, which is actually very popular and enables...

VC Tuesday: Kunio and Koinu

Okay, so there are more WiiWare games in Japan this week than Virtual Console games, but the WiiWare games are boring. How boring? The most interesting games on the list are both puzzle games, and one of those is only noteworthy because it's super cute awwwww puppies. But the Virtual Console games...

Super Dodgeball Bargain

We were dismayed (but not surprised) when Aksys Games' Super Dodgeball Brawlers failed to ignite the sales chartz. In a DS Fanboy-run world, any new Kunio game would be the subject of massive in-store promotions, print, TV, and online advertising, and magazine covers galore. But in the inferior real...

River City Dodge Ball All Stars!!: The other new Kunio Dodge Ball game

If you neglected to pick up Super Dodge Ball Brawlers two weeks ago -- and we suspect you did, considering how few people are talking about the game -- you can still terrorize playgrounds with River City Dodge Ball All Stars!! Developed by doujin groups Miracle Kidz and Downtown7 (along with...
