Legal issues keeping Capcom from rereleasing Rival Schools

If you were hoping Rival Schools was heading to PSN, XBLA or any other digital distribution service then you are out of luck.

Capcom’s Chris Svensson said on the Capcom-Unity forums…unfortunately Rival Schools will not be making an appearance. There are IP clearances and rights we no longer have (particularly pertaining to voicework/soundtrack I believe) so our IP management group has told us it can’t be re-released. I’m sorry as it’s one of the ones I really wanted to see be put back up.

For now if you want to play some Rival Schools you will have to dig up the PlayStation 1 version.  Never say never though. Miracles do happen though, look at Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
