River City: Rival Showdown Begins In November 2017


RCRS_SShots(4) We now have a better idea of when River City: Rival Showdown will arrive outside of Japan. Natsume will release the English version in November 2017. The Nintendo 3DS game will be available both physically and digitally for $29.99.


A special promotion has been announced for physical copies. For a limited time, a keychain will be included with the game. As people may recall, a keychain was also offered with River City: Tokyo Rumble launch copies. Natsume has not revealed what the River City: Rival Showdown keychain will look like yet.


River City: Rival Showdown originally debuted on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan as Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari SP on October 27, 2016. It was made to celebrate the series’ 30th anniversary.
