The Rumble Fish 2 has announced its arrival on consoles for the first time after 17 years alongside the first game


This will be the first time that either game will also be released outside of Japan.

There are plenty of examples of fighting games that have never left Japanese arcades over the past few decades, but now one of those titles is going to come home.

3goo made the surprise announcement today that The Rumble Fish and its sequel are set to hit consoles after The Rumble Fish 2 remained an arcade exclusive for 17 years.

As first reported by Famitsu, fighting games first created under Sammy and Dimps will not only be available on home systems, but it will be the first time that either title has also been released in outside of Japan since they confirmed a global launch for the winter of 2022.

The Rumble Fish is notable for being one of the first fighting games that Dimps developed in 2004 before working on projects such as Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter X Tekken, Street Fighter 5, and Soul Calibur 6.

The Rumble Fish 2 features 6 new characters Sheryl, Mito, Bazoo, Lud, Hazama, and Beatrice in addition to the 10 fighters available in the first game, as well as an expansion of its unique Offense and Defense power gauges for more use by players. sides of the addition Boost Dive System.

No mention is made as to which systems this special Rumble Fish package will release on later this year, but it’s probably safe to assume that the PlayStation 4 is most likely followed by PC and the Nintendo Switch.

The first game debuted on the PlayStation 2 in 2005, but many fans thought the series would probably never see the light of day again due to its limited awareness outside of Japan.

Sadly, no mention is made of the bundle including the restore netcode, but we can certainly hope for a “new” title releasing in 2022.
