NATSUME ANNOUNCES RIVER CITY: TOKYO RUMBLE

Side-Scrolling Beat-‘Em-Up Series Returns to North America!

Burlingame, CA. – April 21, 2016 – Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer
and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today that it
will bring River City: Tokyo Rumble to the Nintendo 3DS this summer.
River City: Tokyo Rumble continues the partnership established last
year with Arc System Works, who owns the River City franchise. River
City: Tokyo Rumble will be one of several Natsume titles playable at
E3 2016, taking place June 14th – 16th 2016 in Los Angeles.

“We know there’s a loyal fanbase of the River City series in North
America who have been asking for more of these addictive games to
play!” said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. “Whether you’re
a longtime River City fan or new to the series, there’s plenty of
side-scrolling action to love.”

Originally launched as Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-Kun SP: Rantou Kyousoukyoku
in Japan, the game is part of a long-running series of side-scrolling
RPG brawlers, sports games, and more.  North Americans were first
introduced to the series with River City Ransom on the NES, with an
updated take on the game arriving several years later on the Game Boy
Advance. Multiple spinoff games, including volleyball and fighting
games, have followed.

“River City its celebrating its 30th anniversary in Japan in 2016, and
we’re excited to be part of the celebration,” said Minoru Kidooka, CEO
of Arc System Works. “We’re very excited to be continuing our
partnership with Natsume, which included Gotcha Racing and Brave Tank
Hero in 2015.”

River City: Tokyo Rumble follows the story of a hot-blooded high school
student named Kunio and his good friends. When a nefarious gang moves
into Tokyo to try to take it over, it’s up to this self-proclaimed
“fighter for justice” and his buddies to make sure the streets stay
safe!

Punch, kick, use weapons such as soccer balls, iron knuckles, chains,
and even bicycles to knock some sense into those devious gang members.
Take on jobs, level up your abilities, and don’t forget to stop on
occasion for a snack or two at the local food joints. Luckily, smiles
are free!
