Arc System Works Is Bringing The PS3 Remake Of Downtown Hot-Blooded March To PC



Arc System Works has announced that it’s bringing Downtown Hot-Blooded March: Let’s Go to the Great Sports Meet to PC. It will be playable at ChinaJoy 2015 held between July 30th and August 2nd in Shanghai.


The game is a remake of the 1990 Famicom Kunio-kun sports game and was released in Japan for PS3 back in March. It adds new 3D backgrounds but retains the original sprites, character customization, new teams and characters, and new special attacks.


While this is a sports game, the Kunio-kun series is better known for its brawlers that revolve around Kunio and his rival Riki—a little series you may know as River City Ransom.



Arc System Works and Million have recently been making new Kunio-kun games and, back in June, Arc System Works actually obtained the property rights to the entire franchise, as well as Double Dragon, River City Ransom, and Super Dodge Ball. We wondered what Arc System Works might be doing with these titles and, well, a PC port for one.


Arc System Works also announced that it’ll be showing the Chinese versions of Guilty Gear Xrd –SIGN- and BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma EXTEND on PlayStation 4 at ChinaJoy this year.
