Translation (English) by Aeon Genesis - v1
It´s Kunio. It´s a beatemup. It´s fun. Whee. For those who don´t know what I´m talking about, it all started (to my knowledge) with a game called Nekketsu Kouha - Kunio-kun which was released in the States as Renegade. That game´s quite a bit less popular than its cousin which came out here as River City Ransom, also starring Kunio and Riki. This game is the sequel to the original Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun, so don´t expect the RPG elements that RCR had in this. It´s still quite a fun game, though, and it´s LONG for a beatemup.
The story, basically, is that Kunio got in a hit-´n-run accident where he ran a red light and hit a man in a crosswalk, or something. Of course, he didn´t really do it; we learn within the first few minutes of the game that there´s a Kunio lookalike parading around Tokyo, and he´s likely the one who really got into the accident. It´s up to Kunio to clear his name, but he´s stuck in the juvenile detention center!
