Natsume has announced they’re localizing Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-Kun SP: Rantou Kyousoukyokubetter known as Kunio-Kun SP in Japan.

The game will be known as River City: Tokyo Rumble in North America (Natsume has seemingly only confirmed the game for the Americas).

Further details weren’t announced – but we’ll update this post once we receive the official press release.

    That’s swell. The gba version of the original was pretty good.

    Please let this come to PAL territories! I had to import Advance back in the day, and region locking on the 3DS is the worst. :(

    We publish games in North & South America, partner with other companies to bring titles to PAL, and even publish in Japan now. Now, we haven’t cracked SEA much yet outside of Seeds of Memories and Carnage Heart EXA, that’s true :)

    I can’t believe it. You guys have no idea how happily surprised I am about this. Not to get greedy, but I wonder what the chances of getting some of the other games are now. Like the one set way in the past.
