River City Girls 2 Developers Reveal Game Is Coming Later This Month
WayForward will digitally launch the beat-'em-up sequel December 15.
Developer WayForward has announced River City Girls 2 will launch December 15 in North America and Europe. The beat-'em-up sequel starts after the first game and features Marian from the Double Dragon franchise as well as Provie from River City Ransom: Underground.
Marian first appeared in Double Dragon as Billy Lee's girlfriend who, after taking a punch to the gut, becomes a damsel in distress for the entirety of the game. River City Girls 2 will see her dishing out some pain as a playable character after a cameo role in the previous title.
Along with Marian and Provie, River City Girls 2 also features the original title's cast of four: Misako, Kyoko, Kunio, and Riki. Another key difference with River City Girls 2 is the incorporation of online co-op, with four players being able to fight together.
River City Girls 2 will also offer a "massive nonlinear game world and RPG-like character growth," according to WayForward. In addition, composer Megan McDuffee is returning to score the game's soundtrack.
Back in June 2021, WayForward unveiled River City Girls 2 as part of the Limited Run Games' E3 presentation. Then, as part of a Nintendo Indies World Showcase in December 2021, the sequel was slated for a summer 2022 release.
WayForward is bringing River City Girls 2 to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. It will cost $40.
