River City Melee Mach!! is an enhanced version of River City Melee: Battle Royal Special with new elements added that make for more heated battles.

A new item, Bamboo Shoot when eaten makes characters gigantic. Change Match is a new game mode which allows characters to be switched over if they are defeated. The game also includes a Team Edit mode that allows players to create their own teams.

During rule settings for a match, other than selecting the number of weapons that appear in a match, the player can now choose what weapons appear.

Other than the Bamboo Shoot, the following new items also appear:

  • Bat: Send opponents flying with a swing.
  • Stun Gun: Electrifies enemies in the style of Nekketsu Kakutō Densetsu.
  • Caffeinated drink
  • Hot Sauce

The game adds a new Endless Battle mode which is single player only. The player picks any character and must fight until his stamina is completely depleted.

All characters had their movesets improved. Kunio's Mach Kick becomes Mach Kick A, which is a Mach Kick 2 with a wave attack, increasing its range, while Toraichi's Mach Kick becomes the Tiger Fang, his version of the Mach Kick from Nekketsu Kakutō Densetsu. It is now possible to chain moves together, and they can be canceled by pressing the attack buttons when they connect, making combos with all moves easier.

The following characters have been teased to appear:

One noticeable change in this game from the previous two (~All Stars Special~ and Battle Royal Special) is that the skin tone of some of the characters have been corrected.


The game will have the stages from the previous game along with the following new stages:

  • Rooftop: Has an hazard to the right of the stage, and wind can blow to that direction, pushing players into it.
  • Construction Site: Has rain and unsteady ground to maneuver in.
  • Freezer
  • Warehouse


The game introduces five new teams (the ones with the teased characters listed above):
