July 7, 2009 // 9:52 pm - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today revealed that it has secured the publishing rights to Kenka Bancho 3, a Japanese beat'em up for PSP system.

The game, which puts players in the role of a high school student on a class trip to a historic Japanese city, includes no shortage of fist-to-face and knee-to-gut action, and all in the name of pride and bragging rights.

Press Release: ATLUS TO BRING JAPANESE BRAWLER KENKA BANCHO 3TM FOR PSP®(PlayStation®Portable) SYSTEM TO NORTH AMERICA; FANS TO BE GIVEN OPPORTUNITY TO CONTRIBUTE TO NAMING PROCESS

What's in a name? You tell us.

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - JULY 7, 2009 - In an unprecedented move for the publisher, Atlus will look to fan input in the process of choosing a title for the game's North American release.

"Kenka Bancho 3 is a terrific brawler with all the action and humor PSP system owners crave," said Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales for Atlus. "That said, the game is also called Kenka Bancho 3, which, without translation, may not be the most intuitive title for non-Japanese speaking gamers.

Therefore, we're going to open things up for our fans to help us pick the game's new North American title. We wouldn't be in this situation if my suggestion for the title, Buncha Banchos, had been accepted," Jabbari added quickly with a nervous chuckle, "but you know, whatever."

Kenka Bancho 3 is scheduled for release in early 2010.
