    @dberg: The Kunio-kun games (which is probably mainly what Arc made this deal for, let's face it) are anything but arcade beat 'em ups.

    More games about beating up Goddamn anarchist punks in the grimy smoking urban decay of pre-Giuliani New York City please.

    Bonus points if the reason for your roaring rampage of revenge is because they menaced your lady.

    So what does this mean for River City Ransom Underground? Probably nothing since they were officially licensed before this.

    The one I would really like to see would be a new Kunio-kun football game.

    I wonder what this means for River City Ransom: Underground.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/combitstudios/river-city-ransom-underground/description

    They tweeted that they weren't aware of this acquisition beforehand but Arc already got in touch with them. I would think that since they had a license from Million for their project, they're OK, unless there was a change of ownership clause in place. We shall see but yeah, I backed this and it's being made by a local team to me so I hope it comes out.

    A Double Dragon game in the style of Neon that uses the same engine as Guilty Gear Xrd. Just thinking about that possibility is fucking amazing.

    There's already been one Kunio-kun release this year, the samurai-themed Downtown Nekketsu Jidaigeki for the 3DS. Hey, maybe they'll localize that and put it out? I'd play that game.

    There's actually been another Kunio-kun release, from back in March, on the PS3. ダウンタウン熱血行進曲 それゆけ大運動会 ~オールスタースペシャル~ (Downtown Nekketsu Koshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundokai ~ All Star Special ~) It's essentially a remake of Famicom game from 1990 that's a 4-player foot race through town with all the various RCR-style punching and item tossing that you're used to. In retrospect, it prrrrobably wasn't worth the 4,800 yen I spent to grab it digitally off of PSN, but chalk that up to Kunio-kun induced frenzy.

    Previous to these, the last Kunio-kun games released here were the DS "Sports Challenge" ones, right? AKSYS put those out? Also, the Super Dodgeball remake (still available!) on Xbox Live Indie Games that Miracle Kidz self published?

    Let's see if they can top Double Dragon Neon, the best game in the series.

    And that goddamn Jake Kaufmann soundtrack!

    This is nothing but good news. Hopefully, we get to see a new Random and Double Dragon game with Arc Systems special tough.

    Put him to work on awesome covers of the classical soundtrack in Crash and the Boys. Glad to see another Neon aficionado. Game is really very good.

    Arc System Works doesn't do cool stuff anymore, they only ruin things. Predicting some ports with inexplicable framerate problems in the future.

    @ligerbusa: I was actually thinking the same thing as a backer. I really hope it doesn't mess with it at all as the development has been really interesting to watch and what I've seen of the game looks great!
