As soon as the game starts, a cutscene shows main hero Kunio coming to the aid of a friend getting pummelled by Hanazono High School students at the Nekketsu High School front gates. True to his hot-blooded nature, Kunio gives chase and finds himself alone at the Shinjuku subway station facing the entire gang, including their leader – and Kunio’s eternal rival – Riki Samejima. If you manage to come out on top, said friend gets pummelled again, so you’ll need to head out beat up gang-upon-gang of wannabe badasses.
