Kicking it up a notch
River City Girls 2 is coming to Switch sometime this year, but we don’t have a locked-in release date yet. While we wait for that, WayForward has shared a new look at the game via a development live-stream.
In the video above, we get a very deep look at the combat in River City Girls 2. The original River City Girls offered a ton of variety for a beat’em-up. Not surprisingly, WayForward is going even further with River City Girls 2. More moves, more action, and more over-the-top brawls for you to get in on! You can learn all about it in the video above.
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!
