kunio1While a River City Ransom 2 is in development, it won’t be out until 2014. Fans of Technos’ beat ’em ups might want to check out Hot Blooded Tough Guy Kunio: Fighting Concerto. Kunio-kun is the original series River City Ransom, Renegade, and believe it or not Nintendo World Cup are based on.


Yoshihisa Kishimoto, the creator of Kunio-kun, is working on Fighting Concerto and supervising the game’s story. It’s a brand new plot for Kunio and his friends to fight through Tokyo districts like Ikebukuro and Shinjuku.


Hot Blooded Tough Guy Kunio: Fighting Concerto has a companion system where you can fight with a friend and part time jobs to take on. Part time jobs? That’s totally the opposite of this. Million added some RPG-lite elements to the game. Aksys brought over some of the Kunio-kun games like Super Dodgeball Brawlers. Perhaps, they’ll pick this up?

    Don’t get your hopes up self.

    Judging by how all signs point to that ASW is going to be publishing and translating their wares on their own (rather than relying on Aksys to do it for them, as made apparent by how ASW now has their own local branch)?

    I would think that we need to focus our attention on ASW rather than Aksys any longer.
