Renegade, Super Dodgeball Brawlers, and River City Ransom are all part of one series in Japan with high school ruffians called Kunio-kun. A company called Million owns the rights to it now and made a remake of Renegade with pixilated sprites for the Nintendo 3DS.
Famitsu reports Hot Blooded Tough Guy Kunio: Fighting Concerto is in the works for 3DS. The game is scheduled for release on August 8. Members from the original team are supervising the game, which has a brand new story. Fighting Concerto will also have new modes. Details haven’t leaked online yet so we’ll keep poking around for more information about Million’s beat ’em up.
