Arc System Works had revealed a year-long 35th anniversary project for the Kunio-kun franchise in May, stating there would be new games, related projects, and collaborations for the franchise. Arc System Works will release A+ Games’ Kunio-kun no Sangokushi da yo: Zeiin Shūgō! (It’s Kunio’s Record of the Three Kingdoms: Everyone Assemble!) game for Switch in December, and will release the game for PS4 and PC via Steam in April 2022 or later.
Technos Japan released the first game in the Kunio-kun series in May 1986, and the series has had numerous installments since then. Some of the games in the series were localized in the West with altered titles, visuals, and stories, resulting in such titles as River City Ransom, Renegade, and Crash ‘n’ the Boys: Street Challenge.
Arc System Works acquired the rights to a number of Technos Japan games — including Double Dragon, Super Dodge Ball, River City Ransom, and Kunio-kun games — in June 2015. The company released Kunio-kun: The World Classics Collection, a collection of games in the Kunio-kun franchise, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch in December 2018.
