There is a lot of hype behind what the team at WayForward create, mostly because past history proves that they deal with games that are well worth playing. Now though it’s time for the River City Girls to come to the fore, kicking butt with a new generation of old-school action with a release on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Available to purchase and download right now, River City Girls is the latest cooperative beat ’em up from the WayForward team – they of Shantae fame – with the development overseen by those at Arc System Works.

Priced up at £24.99, River City Girls is the latest title to run along the River City lines (or Kunio-Kun should you prefer), starring two tough high school girls – Kyoko and Misako – as they attempt to fight their way across the entirety of River City.

With an overall objective of attempting to rescue their kidnapped boyfriends, the girls will be found making the most of a variety of combos, counters, throws and special attacks, taking down a multitude of enemies and nailing a ton of different quests.

The opportunity to chat and interact with some NPCs along the way, go shopping for different items, food and gear, and unlock a variety of abilities should mean that River City Girls is a tempting proposition for fans of WayForward and the River City series. The 16-bit visuals and synth-pop soundtrack just hammer home even more reason.

Key Features Include:

  • 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!

If you wish to get a download moving then the usual digital stores will sort you out. The Xbox Store is obviously the place to be if you’re an Xbox One gamer, whilst the PlayStation Store, the Nintendo eShop and the usual PC offerings will provide the goods for those on other formats.

Our full review is fast approaching and will be with you very soon. Make sure you keep an eye out for it.

Edit: That review of River City Girls on Xbox One is now live.

Game Description:

There’s trouble once again on the mean streets of River City, but this time the boys are in over their heads! In this all-new entry in the legendary beat-’em-up series, hot-blooded heroes Kuni and Riki have been captured, leaving it to their hard-hitting girlfriends, Kyoko and Misako, to serve up some payback. As you punch and kick your way across town – either solo or with a friend in local co-op – you’ll gain new skills, chow down on power-ups, wield an assortment of weapons, and unleash an arsenal of combos, throws, and special attacks that will leave the bad guys crying for mama – all in outrageous 16-bit style! The awesome action is punctuated by manga story panels, anime cutscenes, and an epic synth-pop soundtrack. It’s an old-school rumble for a new generation!

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
