Rumble Fish, The

Rumble Fish, The - Cabinet - Video Game Marquee


The Rumble Fish uses a unique 2D fighting system with the ability to easily create combos. Weak attacks can easily chain into slower, stronger attacks, a common system shown in games like Guilty Gear and Melty Blood. There is also a button dedicated to multiple evasive maneuvers. The game also introduces the division of the power gauge into Offense and Defense. Advanced techniques are available to the player, at the cost of either gauge.As the 20th century fades into the 21st century, a largescale natural disaster tears through the eastern side of a certain country, destroying its economical and political operations and taking a total of 158,000 lives.The conglomerate known as PROBENEXUS begins its reconstruction of the east side, as well as moving its base of operations there. The rebuilt area flourishes again as it becomes a wealthy and busy city known as Zone Prime, erected as a symbol of a new age.However, all is not well as an unknown incident occurs in the slums in the western block of Zone Prime.Black envelopes are handed out to 9 contenders, inviting them to an underground tournament known as the Fight for Survival, or F.F.S.
