>>7865540>It will come packed with a new anime-style opening, new cutscenes and an original song by Megan McDuffee.
The original game is told from the PoV of the Kunio and Riki, who don't exactly behave as gentlemen towards their "girlfriends" they only have for this game and who are really not that sympathetic, then they get written out of the story before the final stretch for a final showdown between Kunio and his "twin".
These girlfriends only appeared in this game, and were the worst kind of assholes you could think of.
Kunio-kun has had a lot of revivals but for some reason only in Japan. The one that was targeting Western audiences ended up being River City Girls by Wayforward, and was infamous for how subversive it was towards the original source material (the actual recurrent girlfriends are sidelined as villains, the story keeps trying to portray the psychotic main characters as sympathetic and it fails so much even the JP translation tones it down and they later patch it out. It's also not that good gameplay wise.)
The only legitimacy these "girls" had to the series canon was their sole appearance here. So they went and retroactively localized this as a PREQUEL to River City Girls. "Anime style opening" already implies it's not merely a romhack but very probably a port of spliced SNES save states with heavily altered intermissions to accomodate. "New cutscenes" implies turning a 40% story showtime into a 100% showtime or something near that even when it doesn't make thematically sense.
