New Kunio-Kun game has magic, headed to 3DS eShop


11:00 AM on 03.22.2014



We're getting a new River City Ransom game soon enough, and that's darn exciting. What's less exciting is the fact that a bunch of new Kunio-Kun games have been announced for the 3DS over the past few years, but none of them have made it out of Japan. For those not well versed in their history of Japanese beat 'em ups, the Kunio-Kun series is the parent to games like River City Ransom, Renegade, Super Dodgeball, and Crash 'n the Boys. Kunio is a big deal, though a lot of his fans don't even know who he is.

Now yet another Kunio game is headed to the 3DS eShop. This one looks like it borrows heavily from classic JRPGs, which might make for an interesting change of pace. Will we ever get to play it? Given how large the 3DS's install base is, and how profitable some eShop games have been, I imagine that a smart publisher would be able to turn a profit from localizing Hot-Blooded Magic Tale Kunio-Kun. With the rights to River City Ransom already tied up, I'm not sure what they'd call it though. Rungo's Cast a Spell Lets Hurt 'em Kids might be good.

Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire get tin cases & pre-order toys in Europe

In the United States, if you buy both Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire at Toys R Us, you get a Charizard plush. In Europe, a GAME or Nintendo UK pre-order will net you a nifty tin case and a little toy when the game releases, November 28. I think Europe got the better deal, unless you must have both versions of the game and need a throw pillow or snuggle buddy. more
