We're less than three weeks away from River City Girls' September 5 launch for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Video game distributor Limited Run Games took the time as a liberty to reveal the upcoming beat-em-up's physical release, which is slated for PS4 and Switch.
LRG shared the news on Twitter, reminding players of the game's premise: "two street-tough high-schoolers who must fight their way through the six regions of River City to rescue their kidnapped boyfriends." Pre-orders for River City Girls' physical version will be open for a limited, four-week period starting on Friday, August 30. Each standard River City Girls physical copy will come with a one-disc sampler of the game's soundtrack, with LRG alluding to more River City Girls news in "the coming weeks" in a separate tweet.
Earlier this week, developer WayForward Technologies published another character spotlight. This time, the video focused on the cheerful and bubbly Kyoko, River City Girls' second playable character. At the beginning of August, WayForward showcased River City Girls' first playable character, the hot-blooded Misako, in a spunky character reveal.
We played River City Girls at Anime Expo 2019, citing it as one of the better anime-like games we're watching this year. The beat-em-up features retro-inspired visuals reminiscent of previous Kunio-kun games like 2016's 3DS release, River City: Tokyo Rumble. But instead of focusing on series mainstays Kunio and Riki, River City Girls modernizes its formula by putting girl power front and center.
