Also, you missed the opportunity to say
"ShUt Up AnD tAkE mY mOnEy!!!" lolz
I got it today! Been playing it basically all day long. :3 It's amazing!
Also: I was wrong, Misako is not Roxy and Kyoko is not Cyndi. Actually Roxy's original name is Hasebe and Cyndi's is Mami, and both of them also appear in River City Girls, though they act... uh... MUCH different. Though given that I think Misako and Kyoko first appeared in "Shin Nekketsu Kōha: Kunio-tachi no Banka" as Kunio and Riki's girlfriends even though Hasebe had at least expressed interest in Kunio, and Mami was explicitly stated to be Riki's girlfriend at the time... Yeah, there is a LOT of hostility being thrown around. It also explains why Misako and Kyoko didn't seem to really have much to say to Yamada (aka Slick/Simon).
Oh speaking of Yamada, his design is frigging awesome in River City Girls! Really sells the whole dark arts/psychic powers thing. That always kinda been a gimmick he had in various games, but it always seemed pretty understated. This Yamada though goes full tilt into it, complete with evil purple psychic lightning, and I love it! It also really clearly explains his backstory a lot better then any other game I think.
...I could just gush for pages and pages about this game and all the little connections to Kunio-Kun series lore. Seriously, the writers did their homework, or at least bothered to read the wiki. This game is definitely a labor of love!
