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 released on the Nintendo 3DS! Basically no details about the upcoming game have been released but that doesn’t mean I can’t walk around town staring people down and getting into street fights…it’s the law that stops me from doing THAT. I really hope ATLUS decide to, once again, jump onto this game and plan for a Western release. I don’t think I can go on any longer without ‘Kenka Bancho’. It’s killing me!
