    I'm definitely looking forward to both River City games, though not because of soccer or any of the other sports elements (not a fan, really). I dig the art style and rough-and-tumble vibe of the whole River City thing. Hopefully, there's some real fun to be had, not just two games riding on the River City namesake.

    Yeah , it's based off a manga series (there's also an anime). There are lots of CT games out there for different consoles , namely the NES , SNES, GBA , PS1 and PS2 . And now it's finally here on the DS [​IMG]

    nugundam0079 , it won't take you too long to identify which words mean kick,passcut,block,tackle e.t.c in the game. I suggest you start with Captain Tsubasa Vol 2 : Super striker on the NES. It's the best in the series (well CT5 on the SNES comes close) with great tunes. There's also an english fan translated version of it , just google .

    Oh and in case you're wondering, the Kunio games were inspired from the Captain Tsubasa series.

    I don't know if this is true unless you have some reliable source(s).

    On topic:
    I'm looking forward to this game. But I wished Aksys Games would localize River City Super Sports Challenge first. :/

    Eh...the game came out before the manga O.o ? Nope , you're mistaken. The manga came out early in 1981, and the first CT Nes game came out in 1988. The first TV anime came out somewhere around late 1983 .Captain Tsubasa clearly started the trend where players do crazy shots that blow away keepers, make holes in the wall e.t.c . I should have said the Kunio "Soccer" games were inspired by CT , unless of course there was another manga or something else that made Japan soccer crazy.

    I just realize that I thought you were talking about Kunio series, and not CT. My bad. :X

    Fuck gamestop, use amazon http://www.amazon.com/River-City-Soccer-Ho...S/dp/B003E6VK6U

    I'm going to have to ROM this and the Super Sports Challenge (Crash and the Boys Street Challenge remake) next month. If they don't blow (scores matter not, material does to me) I'm getting them. DS has been a wet turd this year as far as things to get that didn't/won't suck. Got Pokemon Silver and Picross 3D for real games, DD I got some stuff like (was free though) Driller, that Greek Pinball game and something else so it has had me bugged. With only DQ9 and maybe that FF 4 warriors game and if it comes and I like the look of it Golden Sun there's nothing left. This adds 2 kickass Kunio games into my want bucket so it effectively doubles my reasons not to have a dusty DS.

    Well, I'm playing the J version on my Acekard 2i with AKAIO 1.7. The game works flawlessly.

    But I tried it with NOGBA , and there is indeed AP protection at the screen where they show you the controls. You can't progress beyond that one.

    Well... if you have the firmware in your no$gba folder, you can actually play the game.
