This March we'll be returning to River City once again and this time we'll be in for some major fisticuffs!

This entry into the River City series (known as Kunio-
kun in Japan) will be a fun and easy to get into arena fighting game, with the fighting system is based on the PS3/PC game River City Super Sports Challenge: All Star Special. The game even has developers from the popular fighting game franchise BlazBlue working on it in.

Here are some of the features of the games that have been revealed!

Players will have a "Rage Gauge" that fills up as they take damage. When it's maxed out, the character will become enraged, increasing their stats, and they'll be able to perform their "Rage Special Move".

There'll be several new stages available to fight in as well. Battle Royal SP will feature a Sports Grounds level, it's a half a football pitch with a goal and goalie. You'll be able to deal damage to your opponents if you can score a goal. The Factory level from previous games makes it return. Hitting the switches on either side of the stage will cause weapons will appear in the stage for competitors to fight over.

For game modes, the game will have a Single-player campaign to play through. You'll be able to pick from twenty-five different teams, each with their own deep storylines. 

Free Battle allow you to set up a fight with your preferences, from the number of battles to how long they last. Up to four players can take part in a Free Battle. Online Battle allows you to fight opponents online. Use the Quick Match option to search for a match with your preferences, or use Player Match to search for a match to join using keywords to match up with friends, and other conditions.

River City Melee: Battle Royal Special will also be getting an Asia-exclusive physical release with multiple language support. Languages included will be English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese.  

So if you're a fan of the River City/Kunio-kun series, a fan of retro style gaming, or just looking for that jolt of nostalgia this might be the game for you! The game launches Mar 2017, pre-orders now available.
