Natsume working to restock physical copies of River City: Tokyo Rumble

Coming from Natsume...

Today is the launch day of the long-awaited River City: Tokyo Rumble. Finally, River City is back! The game is available digitally on the Nintendo eShop and physically at select retailers, such as Crunchyroll.com, Gamefly.com, and GameQuestDirect.com. It is also avaible in Canada with Videogameplus.ca.

Unfortunately Natsume's Amazon store is currently sold out. Sales of the game well exceeded what we thought the demand would be for physical copies. While we're excited about how much enthusiasm there was for the physical release, we know that a lot of you are disappointed you can't buy the game right now, and for that, we are very sorry.

However, we're working on restocking the physical version, right now. While we don't have an estimate when these will arrive and go on sale yet, they will go directly to Amazon so they can be up for sale as quickly as possible. These copies will also have the Kunio keychain!

We thank everyone for the support that brought about a physical run of River City: Tokyo Rumble. Your voices were heard, and were making it happen.

I was just thinking earlier today that I haven't purchased a single theme for my 3DS. It's almost like WayForward was reading my mind!

River City Tokyo Rumble Launches on 3DS

Burlingame, CA. – September 27, 2016 – Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, today launched the RPG brawler River City: Tokyo Rumble for the Nintendo 3DS in North America. The game is available in both digital and physical formats!

River City: Tokyo Rumble for 3DS follows the story of a hot-blooded high school student named Kunio and his good friends. When a nefarious gang moves into Tokyo to try to take it over, it's up to this self-proclaimed "fighter for justice" and his buddies to make sure the streets stay safe!

Players will punch, kick, and use a variety of weapons such as soccer balls, iron knuckles, chains, and even bicycles to knock some sense into those devious gang members. Taking on jobs, leveling up abilities, and stopping for a snack or two at local food joints are just some of the action-packed mayhem players will experience. Luckily, smiles are free.

"We have already gotten early feedback that River City: Tokyo Rumble is a 'cant-put-it-down' experience, and we love hearing that reaction," said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. "The series has an amazing following, and we know that this will be another great addition for fans and newcomers to the series alike!"

River City: Tokyo Rumble is now available for $29.99 USD.
