“The Rumble Fish” Fighting Game Series Coming to Consoles This Winter
Game publisher 3goo recently announced plans to bring The Rumble Fish arcade fighting game series to consoles sometime this winter.
Originally developed by Dimps, both The Rumble Fish and The Rumble Fish 2 were developed for Sammy’s Atomiswave arcade system and released in 2004 and 2005, respectively.
Despite never being released outside of Japan (arcade or home consoles), The Rumble Fish games nonetheless developed a global cult following.
Here’s the official breakdown of The Rumble Fish series’ story, followed by the latest trailer:
The Rumble Fish Story
At the close of the 20th century… A large-scale natural disaster struck the eastern area of a certain country. The disaster wiped out the financial sector and toppled high-rise buildings over a wide area, even as far as the main functions of the capital. This resulted in the loss of a staggering 158,000 lives.
At the dawn of the 21st century…
Conglomerate PROBE-NEXUS, commonly known as Probe, begins reconstruction efforts in the eastern area of said country. Probe relocates its own base of operations to the ruined sector and builds a massive city run by the corporation. Lavished with colossal capital and cutting-edge technology, the modern-day Babylon is made up of skyscrapers that put the old high-rises to shame, the biggest shopping mall in the world, and recreational facilities one might mistake for a theme park. This was the dazzling birth of a symbol for the new century. It became the most essential place on the planet and was christened Zone Prime.
And now, in an undeveloped sector of its western block, there was an area known as the slums…
The Rumble Fish and The Rumble Fish 2 are planned to release for consoles worldwide in winter 2022.
