River City Ransom (USA) Nekketsu Hack 1.0

Hack of River City Ransom

Description:

This patch will restore the japanese version of River City Ransom, called Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari, using the plot, names and graphics of japanese game, replacing several sprites, managing to restore Japanese graphics to the characters. RCR names were replaced with DNM names (Alex to Kunio, Ryan to Riki…) and all the text were adapted, using the official script of PS4/Switch official translation. The title screen will remains the same, It’s a mess and almost impossible to change it only editing sprites. Also, ArcSys still uses River City in the new games, so there’s nothing wrong with that.

There’s a known problem in the arm of some enemies that will be white. If the color is changed, the eye of this character changes for this color too. For this reason, it will remains white.

For now, all River City/Kunio-kun beat’em up games are localized by community. Hope you enjoy.

At last!!

Reviewed By: Ponch on 21 Jun 2021

With all the japanese content/script restoration patches that keep popping up, I always wondered how was that no one did something similar for River City Ransom/Downtown Nekketsu Story, but now at last, FANS did it.

The readme states a visual bug with arms being white in some sprite frames, but considering these are supposed to be japanese students, it’s fair to see it as the white shirt under their school jacket sleeves, so even though it’s not intentional, it’s by no means out of place.

The only detail that feels out of place are the little boys, which were originally different girl sprites, walking around the shops. They have a goofier look that the rest of the characters, maybe because they were drawn by a different artist, and, it may be that by this hack being based on the american version instead of a translation from the japanese rom, it’s something hard to edit back.

Beyond that detail, if you like the original game or Kunio’s franchise, give this one a go!
