RIVER CITY GIRLS 2 Beat ‘Em Up Series Releases This Week
WayForward and Arc System Works are back with some huge news for the series return game River City Girls 2! This long-awaited sequel has an official release date and it is occurring this week. Looking to enhance the overall experience that the original games brought, this new game features six playable characters, online gameplay, a deep combat system, character-specific voiceovers, a huge nonlinear game world, and RPG-like character growth.
Picking up right after 2019’s River City Girls storyline, newcomers Marian (from the Double Dragon series) and Provie (from River City Ransom: Underground) join the returning playable cast of Misako, Kyoko, Kunio, and Riki as they set forth on a sprawling experience that takes them from one end of town to the other while fighting the Sanwakai criminal syndicate that’s thrown River City into chaos. Players can also expect new weapons, interactive environments loaded with destructible objects, loads of side quests, more than 40 shops overflowing with items and accessories, and strong hired heavies that will assist players in the fight.
Crime lord Sabu breaks out of prison to avenge his daughter Sabuko’s humiliating defeat at the hands of Misako and Kyoko. He immediately seizes control of River City and makes life miserable for the heroines, kicking them out of school and turning the town into a lawless battle zone. Sabu’s efforts to restore his family name are aided by his snarky adopted son Ken and an army of underworld hoodlums led by tech expert Tsuiko, strength-enhancing chef Primo, and magic-wielding witch Blaire. Sabu’s dominance is all but assured.
River City Girls 2 is set to release on December 15th for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
