Adds a whole new meaning to “rumble pack” for your game systems.
Do you have any fight left in you? If so, then you may just be pleased to hear that a massive bundle of classic side-scrolling beat’em ups are coming to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on the 20th of February, 2020. And it’s not just about fighting: sports and RPG titles are among this beefy roster.
There’s 18 classic games in this bundle, including the original Double Dragon trilogy and the Kunio-kun titles (Renegade, Super Dodge Ball, River City Ransom, and Crash’n the Boys Street Challenge). Also available are many more Kunio-kun games, previously only released in Japan and localized for North America for the very first time. These include Nekketsu Renegade Kunio-kun, Nekketsu High School Dodgeball Club, Downtown Nekketsu Story, Nekketsu High School Dodgeball Club – Soccer Story, Downtown Nekketsu March Super-Awesome Field Day!, Downtown Special Kunio-kun’s Historical Period Drama!, Go-Go! Nekketsu Hockey Club Slip-and-Slide Madness, Surprise! Nekketsu New Records! The Distant Gold Medal, Nekketsu Fighting Legend, Kunio-kun’s Nekketsu Soccer League, and Nekketsu! Street Basketball All-Out Dunk Heroes. Phew!
Of course, there will be multiplayer modes available so you may once again settle old scores with your friends in an honorable way. There’s also online play, complete with a plethora of medals and nicknames and other forms of bragging rights. If that’s not enough of an incentive, you’ll also be challenged to complete 55 in-game missions.
