A remake, ''River City Ransom EX'', came out in 2004 for the GameBoyAdvance, which added more moves, more gangs, more weapons, more characters (some of them from later ''Downtown Nekketsu'' games), and the option to have up to three allies fighting alongside you. However, it lacked a proper 2-player co-op mode and while the English version featured an Americanized script like its NES counterpart, the characters were still drawn with their Japanese school uniforms.

* TrueCompanions: A feature added to the GameBoyAdvance version, defeated bosses could follow you around and fight on your side. Most of the time it required a high reputation (an invisible stat the game keeps track) but sometimes it required talking to certain characters or choosing not to play with both Alex and Ryan. The best examples are the Zombies and the Generic Dudes, because none of them really wanted to work for Slick or Thor.

Added DiffLines:

* BullyingADragon: Benny and Clyde, in their rematch fight close to River City High. They couldn't beat Alex and/or Ryan back at the first mall, when the two hadn't had a chance to improve at all. They then come after the heroes near the end, after they've had nearly the whole game to buff out. Oh, and Benny and Clyde [[VillainForgotToLevelGrind didn't get any stronger in the interim]]. They deliberately come looking for payback against the two and pick a fight against two guys they literally couldn't beat on their best day... and that best day has long since past.

* BossBanter: Though in text rather than spoken dialog, the bosses all had a lot to say during their fights.

A new officially licensed sequel named ''VideoGame/RiverCityRansomUnderground'' is being developed by the Canadian indie developer Conatus Creative. The project reached its [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/combitstudios/river-city-ransom-underground funding]] through {{Kickstarter}}. After many, many delays, the game finally has a release date: February 27, 2017.

Before ''VideoGame/RiverCityRansomUnderground'' was announced, the game actually had not one but TWO cancelled sequels. You could say that the sequel, not as a single game, but as a ''concept'', has been in a long DevelopmentHell.

* ArtificialStupidity: In ''EX'', you should set the "attack" menu option to "none", as it makes you immune to the attacks of your allies (not that the game ever explains what exactly this function does). Otherwise, the biggest threat to you on the battlefield may turn out to be [[WithFriendsLikeThese your supposed ally]].

Another remake, ''Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari SP'', was released in Japan in 2016 as part of the franchise's 30th anniversary celebration. [[http://youtu.be/cGRgnc-JWNk These]] [[http://youtu.be/gP4jNATFekI trailers]] pretty much tell it like it is. Time will tell if it will see an English localization.
