WayForward drop an ass-kicking trailer for River City Girls

Riot Grrrls


Out of nowhere, Shantae developer WayForward has released, nay, unleashed the first trailer for the next game in the head-cracking River City/Kunio-kun series: River City Girls, coming to PC and consoles in September. The development is also being overseen by fighting game gods Arc System Works.

As you can see from this preview, River City Girls will capture all of the scrolling brawler action the series is renown for, but features headliners Kyoko and Misako, who take to the streets to bust some fucking heads after their boyfriends (original River City brawlers Kunio and Riki) are kidnapped by gangsters. What starts out as a standard school morning fast becomes a journey through the down-and-out River City, kicking ass and taking names. Somewhere, Meiko Kaji is smiling in approval.


The trailer already shows off some amazing colourful sprite work and a wicked score, with WayForward promising an adventure filled with weapons and power-ups, six stages of mayhem, series' favourite characters and anime/manga cutscenes. It already looks like my Game of the Year, I'm glad I'm gonna get something else out of 2019... Oh, and will Shantae be a guest star? WayForward has already stated that even if she was, their lips are sealed.

River City Girls launches on PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch digitally on September 5. A physical edition will be made available in future via Limited Run Games.


About

Offering a new generation of old-school action, independent video game studio WayForward is ecstatic to lift the curtain on its upcoming co-op beat-’em-up, River City Girls. Developed by WayForward and overseen by the fighting-game experts at Arc System Works, this latest entry in the long-running River City (also known as Kunio-Kun) franchise is scheduled to hit Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this September.

River City Girls stars Kyoko and Misako, two street-tough high-schoolers who must fight their way through the six regions of River City to rescue their kidnapped boyfriends, series mainstays Kunio and Riki. Along the way, they’ll utilize an arsenal of combos, counters, throws, and special attacks; battle an assortment of enemies; accept numerous side quests; level up with experience points; interact with NPCs (including guest stars from past River City games); and shop for a variety of items, food, and gear to boost stats and unlock new abilities. The girls can even wield weapons and recruit defeated foes to join them in combat!

The one- or local two-player bare-knuckle brawling is complemented by spectacular 16-bit-style graphics and an epic synth-pop soundtrack (featuring NateWantsToBattle, Chipzel, Christina Vee, and Megan McDuffee!), while the story roars to life via glorious anime cutscenes and manga-style intermissions.

Rated E10+ by the ESRB, River City Girls will be available digitally via the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Store, Xbox Live, Steam, GOG, and Humble Bundle at the price of $29.99, while a physical version will also be available from Limited Run Games (price and release date TBD).

Key Features
  • Furious beat-’em-up action for one or two players!
