Katekyoo Hitman Reborn! DS: Flame Rumble Hyper


#1

Yeah, more fighting games in 2008, now is the sequel of Hitman Reborn for DS:

I never played the first game but this seems very promising (to be honest, much more than Windy x Windam), the 2D work is pretty nice and got a 4 Player battle like Bleach DS.

Certainly looks interesting enough.

Only thing is, Takara/Tomy hasn’t given me a lot of reason to trust them, at least, not when they haven’t farmed out development to a team that’s much more trustworthy (like 8ing, who did the Naruto GC games for them).

As I’m always open to more FGs on the DS, I’ll keep an eye on this one. But I’ll also be keeping an eye out for the other shoe to drop…just in case.

The first two Reborn games were ass-butt awful, and it looks like they’re using the same engine here.

I really want a good Reborn game, though. It’s such a good manga. There’s so much potential for the characters in a fighting game.

agreed, hitman reborn is a really good manga, with good story and awesome fights.
