It was only 22 years ago when the iconic and much referenced River City Random (Dauntaun Nekketsu Monogatari in Japan and Street Gangs in PAL regions), was released for the Nintendo Home Entertainment System or as the kids call it these days, the NES. Jump back to March 18th 2011 when Miracle Kidz announced that they were working on Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari 2.
The game will be released this summer, likely as a downloadable title on one or more of the major consoles, as the details have been pretty sparse on that information. Though it is known that an online computer game will be released next year under the same name.
Miracle Kidz says that the original’s development staff is working on the reboot. It has also brought in core fans to assist with the project. All further information is top secret at the moment.
If you are feeling nostalgic, or perhaps left out then hop on the virtual console and try your hand at the original street brawler.
