Technos Japan released the first game in the Kunio-kun series in 1986, and the series has had numerous installments since then. Some of the games in the series were localized in the West with altered titles, visuals, and stories, resulting in such titles as River City Ransom, Renegade, and Crash 'n' the Boys: Street Challenge.

Arc System Works acquired the rights to a number of Technos Japan games — including Double Dragon, Super Dodge Ball, River City Ransom, and Kunio-kun games — in June 2015. The company will release Kunio-kun: The World Classics Collection, a collection of games in the Kunio-kun franchise, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on December 20, with a PC release via Steam at a later date.
