This morning I caught some news that a fighter released by DIMPS back in 2005 for the Atomiswave arcade platform was coming back, but details were sparse. Then Andriasang caught the official site for the announcement, so off we go. The game in question is The Rumble Fish, which had two installments on the Atomiswave. The Rumble Fish 2 is the particular game that is coming back, slated for a release through Taito’s NESiCAxLive arcade download platform. This is more than just re-releasing the software however as DIMPS promises to make some tuning improvements (something you expect with pretty much every fighting game these days as no one ever seems to be happy with what is put out). At the very least, arcades in Japan can expect to see the game for a little bit, but collectors looking to get a board is something they might be out in the rain on. But being that this is a fighter, it’s pretty much guaranteed to not be arcade exclusive for very long as they will certainly do a home port. Official Rumble Fish site.
Also in the fighter realm’s, Capcom has a special website to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter. For fans of the series that wish the reminisce or share artwork, it’s the place for you.
