River City Melee: Battle Royal Special lands on Steam this week



Arc System Works has announced that River City Melee: Battle Royale Special will be hitting Steam this week on September 14. The game is a spin-off of the main Kunio Kun series and features four player multiplayer action in the form of a fighting game similar to Street Fighter. Apparently there are 25 storylines to play through if you're a solo player, though the action won't become like a traditional River City game.

If you own the previous Arc System Works released River City game on Steam (which is Super Sports Challenge ~All Stars Special~), you'll receive a 10% discount on the game in addition to the 10% off launch week special. No price was mentioned, but the game goes for $24.99 on PS4, so I'd guess around there.

I'm honestly shocked that I'm writing about yet another River City game this year. Like I've said numerous times, the original game was a cult hit and became so legendary because of its singular presence. I feel like all of these extra releases are mostly cashing in on nostalgia, apart from Underground that is a huge labor of love. Do we really need four River City games in one year?

Regardless, I still love that art style and I can't say this looks particularly bad. I do wish we could get a remake of Super Dodgeball, though, since that is one of my favorite hidden gems on the NES.
