Hangame brings Kunio-Kun brawls online

kuniok.jpgThe boys from River City Ransom are taking a break from dodgeball and getting back into street fighting. Hangame, the company Square Enix teamed up with to release Concerto Gate, said Nekketsu Kunio-Kun Online is in a testing phase. Essentially Nekketsu Kunio-Kun Online is a Double Dragon-style beat em up mixed with a MMORPG. You talk to NPCs, get quests, set up parties, and then punch everything in sight with your custom created Kunio-Kun character. The whole thing is controlled with a keyboard so you move with the arrows, pick up stuff with “F”, and attack with S/D. Fees for the game haven’t been announced, but it might be time to get a Hangame ID just to try the game out before it gets released elsewhere.

    My computer’s probably too old to try this, actually I wouldn’t even mind a straight beat’em up w/ graphics looking this nice. Replaying River City Ransom on VC now frankly just feels outdated, some old classics should better be remembered as what they were.

    If this game have any kind of pvp its like a dream come true ! Hope we get it in america… Any news on that ?

  • @Kropse – No news on a North American release and it’s too early to rule out a yes or a no. We’ll watch out for it.
