Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge (Wii Virtual Console / NES)

Game Profile

Another tournament composed of several different challenges rocks the streets near Nekketsu High, and since series hero Kunio (Named Crash in this English version) isn't going to turn down a challenge anytime soon, every gang in the city sends its team hoping to come up on top.

Crash 'N the Boys features the same basic gameplay engine and mechanics found in the rest of the Nekketsu High games, you control a character in side-scrolling levels and try to defeat your opponents using an arsenal of attacks and special moves. Unique to C'NB is that in order to clear the 5 stages you must also accomplish a series of sport-themed objectives. There's a throwing event, a golfing event, swimming, jumping and all-out fighting events, all with unique twists inspired by the street / gangs theme of the game (ie. the jumping event involves jumping across the rooftops in the city).

Depending on your performance in each event you can earn medals that can be exchanged for power-ups and stat increases, and the game supports 2 players co-op or vs. gameplay.

How does Nintendolife know that this game will be released in Europe (hence the extra 100 points price tag)? :o

Just a guess, we always add that for games not released in one region just in case they will be released there on VC!

Super Dodge Ball has still not made its way here to Europe, so I don't think Crash 'N the Boys will make it either. Why has 'A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia' not gotten an extra 100 points price tag for Europe yet, for instance...? :P

OH, I didn't know that A Boy and His Blob was actually released in Europe! Hmm, Super Pitfall instead then...?

The point is that Nintendolife shouldn't be in hurry to guess/assume future European import titles because it makes some people to build wrongfully expectations, only to be disappointed if the games never comes here to our VC. :(

Ratengo, to avoid dissapointment, I would just go by whether or not it has been rated in your respective region. On the coming soon it always says it if it is ESRB rated, or whatever ratings board your country has.

I don't know of many other NES games with scrolling backgrounds as good as that to be honest. This is on my radar.

The move 'Spazz roll' will have to be edited out if it comes to europe. Nintendo already got into trouble once over using that in Mario Party.
