Natsume has announced the release date for the latest title in the River City franchise, as well as a nifty pre-order incentive.
There’s gonna be a rumble…
Mark your calendars brawler fans, the classical styled side-scroller River City: Tokyo Rumble is finally hitting the 3DS. The game will arrive in both physical and digital formats on Nintendo’s handheld on September 27th. And interestingly enough, it’ll be one of the first things offered in the Natsume storefront on Amazon.com.
“We are thrilled that River City: Tokyo Rumble will be the first item available in the new Natsume Amazon Store,” said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. “Natsume fans will not only find our lineup of popular games all in one convenient location, but the store will also offer special, exclusive bundles and bonus items like our well-known plush and other unique items. Players should stay tuned as we release more information this fall.”
And there’s a reason why you’d want to buy direct from the company too. Natsume is offering a special keychain with pre-orders of the game, but only if you buy from their new shop. As you can see, the ‘chain has the image of Kunio, one of the main characters from the game. The publisher says he’s a “thug with a heart of gold”, and he just might be. I mean, he’ll clearly hold onto your keys for you, and that’s pretty swell.
One problem- as of this writing, the game is apparently sold out. I’m not sure if that’s because it’s actually sold out though, or if there’s just an issue with the stock because the store is new. So if you want one, then you might want to keep watching this link.
