Kenka Bancho 3, the Japanese beat ‘em up for the PSP, will be known in North America as Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble, as chosen by the fans in a 3-to-1 margin. It wasn’t my first choice, but seeing as both the game’s overwhelming Bancho-ness and Badass-ness are being clearly advertised right there on the cover, I can’t complain.
“Fans strongly felt it was the best fit for the game, or, that they all giggled uncontrollably at the sight of the word ‘badass’,” says Atlus’ Aram Jabbari. “Either way, everybody wins, except of course for the titles not chosen.”
Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble is scheduled for release in early 2010.
