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.
