The Rumble Fish lives: Rumble Fish 2 Nesica update


#1

Years after The Rumble Fish 2 was released in arcades and never saw a console release, DIMPS seems to have something planned for this IP.

http://www.dimps.co.jp/trf/

It begins with a Twitter account for the character Garnet.
Because TRF was never a really big hit, I’m guessing that they aren’t just going to be relaunching the property as a bunch of pachinko/pachislot games… but who knows because lol japan

for the love of god, i want a port of TRF2 so badly, i really belive that the game has the potential of getting a solid following if dimps is willing to invest some love for it aka pulling it on SBO if they decide to make a true sequel for the game

If anything this means Sega’s being smart and are porting both games to NESiCA X Live. This could also mean that a XBLA/PSN version is coming too. But don’t invest stock in option 2. Option 1 is where it’s at and is the logical answer. Option 1 did wonders for Power Instinct 5 and not so much for Daemon Bride AG like I wish it would’ve.

My God.
May something GOOD come out of this.


#5

No, this is the exact opposite of that with regards to Sega.
DIMPS has reclaimed the IP from Sega.

Fuck me sideways with a drill bit attached to a washing machine I would be happiest son of a bitch on this forum if we could get TRF2, it’s such an underrated and amazing game. It didn’t deserve to fucking die out the way it did.


#7

I’ve always wanted to try a Rumble Fish game. I got access to the first one on my PS2, but the disc decided that it wanted to be corrupt before I could play it.
TRF always seemed like it would be fun.


#8

I worked close to Chinatown Fair when the game had dropped and I played it quite seriously for a good year before it just disappeared from the radar. I really really loved that game, I hope it gets a release somehow!


#9

Old friend of mine actually has a PCB that he uses with his SuperGun hook-up so that we could play this game. Gooood times…

But yeah, good to hear that Dimps has their own series back. Will they try to self-publish a RF3 now?


#10

Man you dicks got me excited it was a adaption of

Hopefully at this this game is not ass.


#11

Part 2 was fun, had a lot of good ideas.
But damn, the game was buggy as fuck.

If something like a part 3 comes out, I’m willing to check it out.


#12

This news is on the front page of SRK!

Hopefully DIMPS doesn’t go and just re-release TRF1, that’d probably annihilate the franchise for good.


#13

Fuckin’ A! Dimps making a fighter free of Capcom’s influence! Get hype niggas!

Partial translation from Professor of mmcafe:
"According to reports, Dimps is location testing Rumblefish 2 for the NesicaLive in Akihabara Hey starting yesterday. Its balance has been tweaked. An official announcement should be coming today or somewhere very soon. No word on a console port although that wouldn’t be too hard to imagine.

System stuff

  • screen ratio seems to be the same 4:3 as the original. Moves lists are on the side.
  • It’s Nesica card compliant, meaning player data can be saved
  • Survival and Time attack mode can be played using the same input code as the original game (the command is displayed on the screen for convenience’s sake)
  • Fonts used in the victory and intermission scenes have been changed
  • There’s a loading screen and tutorial with a new female character illustration (probably a Probe-Nexus worker)
  • The bosses are unlocked by default
  • The graphical hit effects look more larger/dynamic now
  • The character’s shadows look more blurry than before
  • After the 4th match, there’s a fanservice cutscene that happens by tilting the joystick, at least with Garnet"

So it is indeed a re-release of TRF2, though with minor updates and on a new platform.

Apparently, this is only the first entry in Dimps Rumble Fish revival.


#17

TRF3 in 2013? It’s almost surreal to think that such is even possible now…

Oh yeah, and they’re self-publishing now, right?
