(3DS eShop)

Game Profile

The first fighting game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System is back for another round.

Use a combination of punches to knock your opponent back- and into an open manhole before time expires. Watch out for angry neighbors who will attempt to drop flowerpots on your head. The police will also make an occasional appearance to temporarily break up the fight- or make an arrest if time runs out.

Find out if you have what it takes to make it on the rough city streets against the toughest brawlers around. Prove yourself worthy, and be crowned Urban Champion.

3D Classic, huh? Well, they're half right...

You really have to feel bad for the team assigned to updating Urban Champion. After all, it's not a game that's very fondly remembered; in fact, you're unlikely to find many positive reviews at all, even from when it was new. It's also a stretch to say...

If you're going to release a 3D classic that's a fighting game Nintendo, why not release Joy Mech Fight and translate it for other regions? Instead you're giving us the worst game in your library.

#1. I hole heartrendingly agree. Joy Meka Fight is a NES (Famicom) classic, it needs a release. Almost as badly as the Mother Series. Check out this channel guy's, .youtube.com/watch?v=1Uy7otTkfI4

3D-Classics release choices seem to be based more on how good the game will look in 3D, and how easily it can be transferred. Not how enjoyable it is. With the lack of content, lots of people are buying them anyway...



chronicler said:

I agree with @Geonjaha. Right now, since the eShop doesn't have much of a market, it would be more profitable for Nintendo to demonstrate how good games could look, with games that are just average. After all, if they converted something like Super Mario Bros. 3 into 3D, how many of you would actually purchase any of the current 3D games? Excitebike? Maybe.

I hope it has download play because I doubt I could get any of my friends to buy it. No matter what I'll get it because I'm desperate for Club Nintendo coins and absolutely NEED a Game & Watch by the end of the year.

Where are the new 3DS ware games?
Is anyone really happy with these old recycled so called classics......keep this up and the 3DS experiment is going to end poorly!!



grumblegrumble said:

I downloaded it.. i remember the original. kind of simple but very retro i made it to level 20 and became urban champ in 10 minutes lol



LittleIrves said:

Call me crazy.... but I'm enjoying this. UBER simple, but for some reason, I've spent 30 minutes each time I've loaded it up. For a download title, that's not a bad average. And the 3D perspective tweaks are pretty compelling, gotta say.

I got my friend to buy it (with surprisingly little effort) and it certainly adds to the replay value. Our bouts are simple time wasters, but include many of the crazy local interaction that I usually find in Mario games. I am glad I bought this, and recommend it to anyone and everyone who likes simple games.
