River City Ransom, released in Japan and as Street Gangs in the PAL region, is a video game for the Family Computer/Nintendo Entertainment System, originally released in 1989. It was one of the first console games published by North American subsidiary American Technos.

It is the third game in Technos' Kunio-kun series released for the Famicom, preceded by Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun (Renegade) and Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu (Super Dodge Ball). Like its predecessors, Monogatari underwent great changes in its storyline and graphical presentation during its localization in order to make the game more palatable in the western market.

Remakes of the game have been released for the PC Engine, X68000 and Game Boy Advance. The NES version was re-released in North America on the Wii's Virtual Console on April 21, 2008, for a price of 500 Wii Points.

One of my favorite NES games. Pretty good graphics for the time, great gameplay. The RPG elements are a very welcome introduction in a genre that was always pretty straight forward.

Classic NES Fighting.... and Upgrading?
River City Ransom was the first NES game I ever bought with my own money as a kid. I liked it from the very first day I rented and had to have it. This game floats between well known and obscure in vintage game circles these days, and probably wasn't much more than that when it was new. It's quite the find if you can get it on a cartridge and system.      The story of this game is really simple. In the town of River City Alex and Ryan have had their girlfriends kidnapped. They …
