Born on November 27, the same day of Bruce Lee, Kunio-Kun is still one of the most renowned icons of Japanese pop-culture.
Based on Technōs Japan’s president Kunio Taki, this high-school boy is the protagonist of more than 30 games which have appeared on dozens of game systems since 1986. Created by Yoshihisa Kishimoto; which is also the creator of Double Dragon series; Kunio-Kun is a very eclectic IP which genres vary from classic scrolling beat ’em up to crazy food puzzle games.
The very first episode called Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-Kun (熱血硬派くにおくん) has been released in May 1986 in Japanese arcades and can be considered a sort of test for Double Dragon; who came right after. Reaching the western countries with a radical change of graphics and a new title, Renegade. This game has been ported for practically all the consoles and computers of that age; giving a huge incredible boost to Technōs Japan finances who continued through the years to release even more original and incredibly funny titles.
Games like Super Dodge Ball, River City Ransom, and Nintendo World Cup despite the obvious differences of gameplay mechanics share the same cast of hot-headed high-school heroes; who have also appeared in the manga, TV drama, and even a live action movie which helped the series to become a massive worldwide hit.
The last installment starring Kunio-Kun is River City Melee: Battle Royal Special released in 2016 for PS4. But, both veterans and newcomers will be happy to know that this week an incredible celebrating hot-blooded compilation will arrive on PS4, Switch, and XB1: Kunio-Kun: The World Classics Collection!
