Last we heard, River City Girls 2 is slated to hit Switch sometime in Summer 2022. While we wait for a specific release date, WayForward is sharing some new tidbits about the game via Twitter. Today’s update gives us a look at one of the game’s hideout areas.
In hideout areas, players can swap characters, exchange recruits, store items, or just hang out. Hideouts can also serve as respawn points if you get KOed.
Picking up where the first RCG 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 you can hold two at once! — plus you can now enlist the help of hired henchmen who pack even more of a punch!
