River City Melee: Battle Royal SP

H2 Interactive will localize River City Melee: Battle Royal Special, known as Downtown Rantou Koushinkyoku: Kachinuki Kakutou SP in Japan, in English, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese in early 2017, the company announced.

Here’s H2 Interactive’s description of the game:

This is the most recent entry in the Kunio-kun franchise, which is reborn as a fun and easy fighting game with upgraded fighting parts from the PC- and PS3-released River City Super Sports Challenge: All Star Special.

The developers of the acclaimed fighting game series BlazBlue have participated in the creation of this game in order to improve the user experience. The game is designed to focus on mind game and balancing, which enables more strategic gameplay for players.

River City Melee: Battle Royal Special offers offline and online battle support. Up to 4 players can battle in intense fights via PlayStation Network.

While H2 Interactive’s press release doesn’t outline which territories it will release the game, the company did release River City Super Sports Challenge: All Star Special in North America and Europe, and will likely do the same for River City Melee: Battle Royal Special.

River City Melee: Battle Royal Special is due out in Japan on December 26. If you missed it, catch the latest details and trailer here.
