New River City Rampage/Renegade game makes me joy-barf


3:00 PM on 11.13.2011



I was a little worried when our man in Japan Allistair Pinsof previewed Hot-Blooded Tough Guy Kunio Kun 3D a few months back. The mode he had the opportunity to play was based off of the original Renegade, and as Conrad Zimmerman always says, "Renegade was never, ever awesome". 

I can't wholly disagree with Conrad there. Though I love the Renegade's wanna-be 50's greaser jukebox soundtrack, the game itself is pretty dull by today's standards. What I really want from this game is a new River City Ransom/Scott Pilgrim-styled action-RPG. Thankfully, this trailer confirms that the game has both a River City Ransom-inspired mode, a Renegade-inspired mode, (including Super Dodgeball and Crash and the Boys), a mission mode that features battles against ridiculous oversized bosses and some volleyball players, a Battle Royale mode, a complimentary soundtrack, and crap loads more. There are even tiger-headed men! Yes! 

The game comes out next month in Japan. If it never gets localized, I will buy a Japanese 3DS in order to review it for Destructoid, just to make you're all sad that you never got to play it.

Sears' 3DS ad listing is absolutely ridiculous

I've seen some absurd ad spots but this one may take the cake. Sears has posted a 3DS advertisement that not only sounds like it belongs in the 1920s (step right up!), but also contains some purely false information. It start...more

Everyone is fabulous in this Japanese New 3DS commercial

Nintendo has a New 3DS TV spot making the rounds, and it shows off some strange new outfits for some iconic Nintendo characters. I'm talking top hat Link, King Pikachu, and a Bowser that's too swanky for his own good. In all...more

Sign me up for 3DS RPG Legend of Legacy

Legend of Legacy sounded pretty good on paper. Honestly, I'm easy ; they had me at '3DS RPG' already. But look at it! Look at that pop-up environmental effect! That music!  Watercolors! Shading! Big heads! The games' &n...more
