J.J. do they have the NES Kunio Kun game that had a graphic makeover to became Renegade over here?

I know on the Gameboy the Kunio Kun game became Double Dragon 2 over here, so I assume the NES versions are kept as Double Dragon?
Renegade is indeed on there, in addition to its Nekketsu Koha Kunio-Kun Japanese version.
That sounds class I will have to invest in that. Btw what’s your opinion of the Snes Kunio-Kun scrolling fighter? Is the all female scrolling fighter on the PC Engine cd an a official Kunio-Kun game or just a spin off?
I actually didn't know they had anything on the PC Engine CD. I'll have to check into that. I am aware of the SNES Kunio-Kun scrolling fighter though, but unfortunately I haven't played it yet. I'm almost worried it might disappoint me since the series' visual charm, to me, seems so tightly bound to the NES style.
On a related note, I did recently buy River City Ransom Underground but haven't played it yet (my computer is old and needs replaced). It looks like an absolute blast based on videos I've seen.

I do a fair bit of buying and selling of retro games as a means of helping with the finances. If I was to post what I was buying and selling each week, you'd be seeing a heap of snes, megadrive, n64, ps2 and xbox games.

It’s called Ane-San and it’s also related to the Cho Aniki games sharing the same composer, Koji Hayama.

It’s a nice looking game with awesome music, but it doesn’t have the NES games Super deformed characters. The girls and the enemies all wear the same clothing making me think it’s a Kunio Kun game.

Picked up a copy of Corporation for the Mega Drive. Also a collection of some old Mean Machines Sega magazines, ones I had missed back in the day so am reading them for the first time!

Elite - awesome!

My partner's dad fished out his old BBC Micro a while ago along with a copy of Starglider - sadly couldn't get the machine to do anything other than run some terrible old spreadsheet routines.

Spotted a copy of Sonic the Hedgehog 1 (MD) for £2.50 from CEX, which I thought was very reasonable!
Now just need a megadrive to play it on :D

Ha yeah the are fun when the break! It's not so bad with a regular MegaCD box because you can get a brand new CD jewel case and use the back of that... but those custom boxes for 3DO, Mega CD and Dreamcast are weak and a pain.
