Renegade is a 1986 arcade beat-em-up by Technos Japan, standing as the "Westernised" version of the slightly earlier release of Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun. Its success in the arcades saw it ported to numerous home consoles and computers, including the Sega Master System in 1993. The Master System port was handled by Natsume and published by Sega.

Gameplay

History

Legacy

Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun was a big success for Technos in Japan, and while Renegade did not meet the same heights in the West, it was popular enough, particularly in the home computer scene, to see two sequels; Target: Renegade and Renegade III: The Final Chapter. Neither of these games were released in the arcades nor were they handled by Technos.

Technos did, however, release multiple Kunio-kun games over the following years; the two immediate successors, Nekketsu Koukou Dodgeball Bu and Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari being released as Super Dodge Ball and River City Ransom/Street Gangs, respectively. The only Kunio-kun game to be released for a Sega system is 1992's Nekketsu Kouko Dodgeball Bu: Soccer Hen MD.

Much of Renegade's development team would go onto producing a spiritual successor, Double Dragon, designed to have both Japanese and Western appeal without the need for significant localisation. Double Dragon was ported to the Master System in 1988, leading to a curious situation where this Sega version of Renegade was released five years after its successor.
