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

0

It'll take some real hocus pocus to get this one localized...

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.
