They’re Lovers And Fighters – New Kenka Bancho Title Has You Dating Juvenile Delinquents

Any avid reader of this here website will know that I have quite a big “thing” for anything related to the odd but interesting Japanese juvenile delinquent sub-culture. Characters like Jotaro Kujo from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Tatsumi Oga from Beelzebub, Yusuke Urameshi from Yu Yu Hakusho, and many other characters from your favorite Anime, manga or Video Games all fall under that particular category. Now that you understand exactly what I’m talking about, I’d like to draw your attention to a video game series developed by Spike Chunsoft called Kenka Bancho. This series of brawler video game titles mostly got a Japan-exclusive release, apart from one sole Western traveler; a game called Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble, maybe some of you out there have heard of it. Well the same company that, in the past, made these incredible action titles have only just announced that they are adding another title to the long Kenka Bancho lineage, but it’s unlike any of the game that came before, this upcoming PlayStation Vita exclusive will not have …

No Time To Be Down – New Batch of “Uppers” Screenshots Posted Online

By now you should know that I’m incredibly excited for the upcoming beat ’em up title by Marvelous; Uppers. Honestly, how could I not like this game? It’s being developed by the team that brought you the Kenka Bancho series, it’s being published by a company that knows what a good video game looks like, and it’s being produced by the man who brought us the titillating series Senran Kagura. If you’re not excited for this video game I honestly think something may be wrong with you. Like, not your personality, maybe you’ve been brainwashed or something, I don’t know, just figure it out before it is too late! Last week saw the release of the upcoming brawler’s very first batch of screenshots which, as you probably already know, are freaking awesome! Well, the Japanese video game website Gamer have been given the great honour of being the first to be able to post the new batch of screenshots which simply show off more of what we’ve already heard about through previous press releases. You …

It’s Time To Meet The Full Character Cast Of “Kenka Bancho 6: Soul and Blood”

Here’s something I bet you didn’t already know: “Kenka Bancho 6: Soul and Blood” has today been released over in Japan. Yep, it sure has. Why am I upset? Maybe because I’m not Japanese, I don’t live in Japan and right now I don’t have the latest video game from possibly my favorite series of all time. Fans of SnapThirty will know that I have a certain “soft spot” for the sub-sub-sub-sub-genre that movies like “Crows Zero” and games like “Kenka Bancho” slot into so for me to not have this game in my hands right now is just heart-breaking. Luckily for me, and everyone else like me out there who love this series, Spike Chunsoft have released a launch trailer which basically takes audiences through the game’s character cast from the main character to the main antagonist. Even though it’s all in Japanese, I think true fans will be able to get the just of what is going on. There’s a lot of punching, a whole bunch of kicking, some radical hairstyles and some …

Yosha! This is what I’ve been waiting for! Last week it was anounced that a brand-new ‘Kenka Bancho’ video game title by Spike Chunsoft is set to be released on the Nintendo 3DS sometime in the near future and fans of the series the world over threw up their bloody hands in an act of pure excitement. This week, today to be specific, Spike Chunsoft has officially opened up the website for the game and with this comes the games very first trailer as well as a story synopsis alongside some of it’s more interesting features. The trailer, though incredibly short, is good enough to get any true fans heart racing and features everything that made the series popular but with what looks to be a whole bunch more, including upgraded graphics and a new style of cell-shaded cutscene made to look like the pages of a Manga. There’s still been no word on a release date for Japan or otherwise, but Western fans are still hoping that we get lucky enough for the game …

Spike Chunsoft Announces New “Kenka Bancho” Game

Here’s the deal: If you’re a constant reader of the site than you’d know how big a fan of the video game series ‘Kenka Bancho’ I am. The first and only time the West was able to legally get their hands on a video game from this series was all the way back in 2009 with the release of ‘Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble’ on the PlayStation Portable thanks to the wonderful people over at ATLUS. Ever since then there’s been a hole in my heart than can only be filled by experiencing the punky action of juvenile Japanese delinquents going head-to-head in fist fights. About a month ago, in the last ‘Nintendo Direct’ video presentation, a new game was teased that had fans of the series the world over scream out in hopes that what they were seeing was a new ‘Kenka Bancho’ title, well thanks to the latest issue of Famitsu online publication it has finally been confirmed. The game is called ‘Kenka Bancho 6: Soul & Blood’ and it is going to be …
