'River City Girls 2' New Release Date Set For Next Week

by Rainier on Dec. 6, 2022 @ 5:13 p.m. PST

River City Girls 2 is an all-new entry in the knuckle-busting beat-'em-up franchise.

The River City Girls are ready for round 2!

Picking up where its predecessor left off, River City Girls 2 throws hot-blooded high-schoolers Misako, Kyoko, Kunio, and Riki — along with newcomers Marian and Provie — into the fight of their lives when an old foe returns to wreak havoc. But the girls (and guys) aren't just giving up; they're fighting back with new stat-altering accessories, new items, new weapons, and additional moves (such as Kyoko's Cartwheel Kick and Misako's Lightning Rider), along with brand-new abilities like guard-crush attacks and lift-off combos. Recruited foes are back to assist in battle — this time two can be held at once — and players can now enlist the help of hired henchmen who pack even more of a punch!

River City is more alive than ever, with a day-night cycle, more-complex terrain, more shops, new hazards, hidden areas, and an abundance of destructible objects. The brawl will take players to numerous new and updated regions of the city — including downtown slums, a tech-company campus, and an enchanted forest — and pit them against an assortment of new enemies and bosses, such as the Dragon Twins (Ryuji and Ryuichi). The heroes can even visit hideouts where they can store extra equipment, swap recruits, or just chill while listening to music.

Other additions to River City Girls 2 include improved quest tracking, three difficulty settings, and a dynamic story system with dialogue that changes depending on the player-controlled characters. And, of course, the game features a new animated intro, new comic book-style cutscenes, and a new hard-hitting synthpop soundtrack from original River City Girls composer Megan McDuffee!

Originally planned to launch this summer, then delayed until Q4 2022, River City Girls 2 is now scheduled to launch digitally in North America and Europe on December 15, 2022.
