Retronauts Live(?) Episode 22: Kunio-kun and Friends

I think I've said this before, but it's not always easy to come up with topics for Retronauts; since the show's been steadily pumping out episodes for five years, it's often a struggle to find a subject that's yet to be touched. So for this one, I tried to go a little more obscure than usual -- though Kunio-kun ended up being much more relevant than I previously thought. As we stated in the episode, Technos essentially created both the one-on-one fighter and the brawler, so we owe much to this mostly forgotten developer. Plus, it's Renegade's 25th birthday, and for this occasion the game will soon see a 3DS remake that Jeremy Parish happened to check out at this year's TGS. Surprise: it's just as crappy as the original Renegade! But in a heartwarming, nostalgic way.

Special thanks go out to Hardcore Gaming 101's Kurt Kulalta who wrote an amazingly comprehensive guide to Kunio-kun games. If you somehow get lost in all of the crazy-long Japanese titles, consult Kurt's retrospective; it won't steer you wrong. Oh, and Frank Cifaldi's article on what could have been River City Ransom 2 is a great read as well.

NEXT WEEK: We're once again returning to the call-in format with a user-dependent (that's you) episode about b-list JRPGs. Over the years, we've discussed Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest to death, but what of Star Ocean, Breath of Fire, Wild Arms, and others? I'll be putting up a blog post soon with the details, but if you need the info now, it'll be taking place at 3:30pm PDT this Monday, September 26. And, as always, the number is 415-89-MESSY.
