The Rumble Fish series returning ... to arcades

The Rumble Fish series returning  to arcades
Last week, developer Dimps announced that it had picked up the rights to its The Rumble Fish fighting games, and promised more information about plans. Today, the company revealed that it's going to "tune up" The Rumble Fish 2, originally released in 2005, and bring it back to Japanese arcades.

While the original release used Sammy's Atomiswave arcade hardware, the new versions will be released on the ubiquitous NESiCAxLive platform, arcade hardware that allows games to be downloaded to cabinets.

Dimps calls this re-release the first part of its Rumble Fish revival project. Perhaps after Japanese consumers get reacquainted with the series, the developer will unleash a new game in the bizarrely titled series.
