RIVER CITY GIRLS From WayForward Looks Awesome! Watch a Teaser Trailer

WayForward recently revealed a new game that they’re working on, and I want it! The game is River City Girls and is a co-op beat-‘em-up game in the classic River City franchise. I saw the trailer for this game and fell in love with the art style and the music. If I can get more music like this from the game, I’m sold.

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 game will be available digitally on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One starting September 5, with plans for a physical copy through Limited Run Games to release at some point. The game will cost $29.99 as well. Here are the key features:

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

  • Stunning pixel-art graphics plus anime and manga cutscenes!

  • Fantastic soundtrack featuring NateWantsToBattle, Chipzel, Christina Vee, and Megan McDuffee!

  • Six large city regions to fight through, complete with shops and side quests!

  • Loads of weapons, items, and abilities to power-up your heroines!

  • Guest appearances by classic River City characters!

I’m so in!
