Try not to get too excited about this soda machine from Stay Cool, Kobayashi-san!: A River City Ransom Story.
It always seemed like there must be a soda machine lurking somewhere in the Double Dragon series, and I finally found these in Double Dragon II for the Game Boy!
Of course, it’s worth noting that the Game Boy release of Double Dragon II was actually a re-skin (soda machines and all) of Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun: Bangai Rantōhen, an entry in the Kunio/Nekketsu High series.
Yet again, soda machines provide a unique window into video game history.
It’s a pair of soda machines from Shodai: Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun, an RPG entry in the Kunio-kun/River City franchise for the Super Famicon!
River City: Tokyo Rumble, much like the actual city of Tokyo, is a soda machine aficionado’s paradise!
Check out this Fizzy Fuzz soda machine from the upcoming River City Ransom: Underground. Thanks for the heads-up, @_Jackalope_!
River City loves its soda machines, and so does River City Ransom!
