Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today revealed the name fans and members of the Atlus Faithful (www.atlus.com/faithful) overwhelmingly threw their support behind for the publisher’s upcoming Japanese beat ’em up for PSPÂ® system: Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumbleâ„¢.
“The title ‘Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble’ perfectly suits the gameplay style, attitude, and humor that PSP owners can look forward to when the over-the-top brawler arrives early next year,” said Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales for Atlus. “The game is about demonstrating to your rivals that you are the ultimate badass. This is accomplished, unsurprisingly, by burying your fists and feet into the faces and/or guts of your foes. The title was voted in by a 3-to-1 margin, which means that fans strongly felt it was the best fit for the game, or, that they all giggled uncontrollably at the sight of the word ‘badass’. Either way, everybody wins, except of course for the titles not chosen.”
Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble is scheduled for release in early 2010.
