A recent issue (well… 3 issues ago) of Weekly Famitsu has a big feature on the game with recycled information from their first report. But an interview with “core” members of the Monster Hunter series development team sort of make up for the disappointment of nothing really new.

After getting into some serious troubles for fighting, the high school dropout comes to Kamurocho to continue his fights. His skills earn him the “Kamurocho Strongest Street Fighter” tag, which gave him the courage to rob an illegal lending company on his own. However, waiting for him in the money lender is Toda Naoteru, the Number 2 in Kuki Group, which is connected to Tojo, Kamurocho biggest clan whose former boss include Kazuma Kiryu, the main character of the Ryu ga Gotoku series. Ukyo manage to defeat Naoteru but found him dead later, which is when all the troubles start for our hero.

Just saw this from last week's Weekly Famitsu, something for those who love Yuusha 30 (aka Half-Minute Hero). Zikande Fantasia is said to be a game that you can complete “between subway stations” and is another time-based RPG from Opus Studio, who developed Yuusha 30 for Marvelous last year (Xseed published the US version).
