Let's get fired up!
Last we heard, River City Girls 2 is slated to hit Switch in Japan Dec. 1st, 2022, and Summer 2022 in the rest of the world. While we wait for a specific release date in NA/EU, WayForward is sharing some new tidbits about the game via Twitter. Today’s update gives us a look at elemental damage.
Some attacks and accessories in River City Girls 2 inflict elemental damage. There are four types: Fire (knocks down target and adds additional damage), Ice (slows down target temporarily), Shock (stuns target in place), and Poison (gradually drains health). In the screenshot above, you’re getting a look at fire elemental damage…obviously!
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!
