Arc System Works is remaking Downtown Nekketsu Koushinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundoukai (Downtown Nekketsu March: Let’s Go to the Great Athletic Meet), originally launched for NES in 1990, for PlayStation 3.
The remake, due out in Japan this winter for 4,800 yen (5,184 yen with tax) with the added subtitle “All-Star Special,” features new 3D backgrounds, while retaining the classic character sprites, as well as online support.
Players will progress through four main events:
Cross-Country Dream Town
Fighting through the streets, inside peoples’ houses, on the roofs, and eventually in the sewers, who will achieve the goal fastest?
On-the-Pole Ball Breaking Competition
To win this battle, you’ll need to climb up your pole and break the ball before your opponent. It is a team-only game, but you’re free to cooperate or betray.
Obstacle Room Competition
In this room full of gimmicks, players must use their wits [to escape? what’s the objective here?] while avoiding interference from other players.
The definitive battle royale. The rule is to simply take down your opponent.
