River City Ransom (USA) Nekketsu Hack 1.1

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.

UPDATE Ver 1.1 - Fix some wrong names.

The best way for Kunio-Kun enthusiasts to play RCR

Reviewed By: Supergamerguy on 03 Aug 2021

I’ve just recently gotten into the Kunio-Kun series, and this hack was a great starting point for my playthrough of the franchise. The combination of the iconic River City Ransom title screen with the characters and story of the original Japanese game was a masterful decision, and it’s implemented almost perfectly. The only issue I ever had when playing was that the bottom half of Kunio’s Acro Circus somersault stayed blue instead of keeping up with his pants as the sprite spun around. Other than that small, insignificant detail, the rest of this hack was phenomenal. I can’t thank the developers enough for finally integrating the English localization of RCR into the Kunio-Kun series as a whole. Now if only someone would fix the soft lock you might run into if you miss a boss before going into the warehouse to fight Thor/Kobayashi……
