Kunio-kun In The Third Dimension

By Spencer . January 8, 2009 . 12:20am

kuniok Arc System Works is taking the Kunio-kun kids out for another field day, but instead of using sprites we get low resolution polygon models. Like JC over at DS Fanboy, I believe this is a first for the Kunio-kun series. Change is nice, but it’s not like the Kunio-kun games needed 3D graphics. Simple and charming sprites worked fine for over 20 years.


Otherwise the shreds of information about Kunio-kun Chou Nekketsu: Daiundokai makes it sound a lot like a 1990s Kunio-kun sports game released on the Famicom. The DS version adds another element too, wireless multiplayer for four which makes Kunio-kun Chou Nekketsu: Daiundokai worth keeping an eye on. We’ll be waiting for an announcement from Aksys about this.

    C’mon make with the River City Ransom ds port! I’d buy I’d buy

  • There is already a Gba River City Ransom port. How many do you need :)

  • very cool! I would love to see a port of the World Cup game on the DS. Think about it; a whole team smacking each other all over the place! My dad would always get so mad at me when I passed the soccer ball to the other team!
