Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble Bumped Up?

image When Atlus announced Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble it was warming up for a release “early next year.” However, two retailers say the delinquent brawler will arrive early.


Gamefly and Amazon have Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble slated for the second week of November. Of course, retail listings aren’t the definitive source for release dates, but unleashing Kenka Bancho early seems like a logical move.


“Early next year” is overcrowded with delayed games like Bayonetta, Dark Void, Bioshock 2 and titles like Monster Hunter Tri and Sands of Destruction which hoped to avoid competition in the first place. Other than Demon’s Souls, Atlus isn’t releasing any other titles this holiday season. So, if Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble is ready why not release it early instead of throwing it on the shelves during a mess of other games.


We’re going to bother Atlus to see if our theory is right. If we hear anything we’ll update you.

  • Yeah well outside of Persona PSP, Atlus’ Fall lineup is pretty light. Especially compared to their heavy Q1+Q2. Of course Demon’s Soul is pretty big, but it’s not like they had to translate it from scratch.

    Could we see Shiren out before Xmas then?

    I like the looks of the Martial Artist. I’ve never played an MMO seriously before, but I’m looking forward to this.

      This is an MMO? I thought it was a fighting game?

      How the hell did this happen? I thought I was on the FFXIV article -_-…
      Sorry about that.

  • This game was amazing on PS2 and will be a instant buy for me. Amazing it’s coming out in the US.
