River City Girls Zero Co-op Review

The River City/Kunio series has seen numerous installments over the years, but precious few of them received English releases until a few years ago. Once Arc System Works took over the license from the defunct Technos, more games starring Kunio and his buddy Riki started making their way out of Japan. WayForward’s release of River City Girls ...

Strictly Limited Announces 'Snow Battle Princess Sayuki' for PlayStation and Switch

Earlier this year, Pocky & Rocky Reshrined arrived on consoles to great acclaim. We loved the game's story and artistry, but found the controls led to unnecessary challenge. Gamers might just have a similar experience when Strictly Limited Games publishes physical editions of Snow Battle Princess Sayuki on PlayStation and Switch. SBPS, which was originally intended to be a Pocky & Rocky sequel, has already been released in English on Switch, but the physical edition will be the first English release of the PlayStation version. Both versions will feature 2-player local co-op.

Current-gen gamers can now enjoy the classic beat ‘em up that introduced the River City Girls!

River City Girls Zero Escapes Prison, Arrives on Xbox and PlayStation

First announced in the summer of 2021, River City Girls Zero arrived on Switch earlier this year. The wait for other platforms, however, has been much longer. At last, the Xbox and PlayStation versions of this retro beat ‘em up have arrived. River City Girls Zero is a lightly enhanced remake of a classic beat ‘em up in the River City/Kunio-kun series and also a prequel to WayForward’s modern River City Girls games. The new version is the first time the game has been officially available in English, and it features 2-player local co-op to boot.

Spidersaurs Co-op Review

Shows like Dino Riders and Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors featured bizarre/creative premises and plenty of merchandizing potential. WayForward draws from that legacy with Spidersaurs, a run-and-gun shooter with a goofy concept (genetically engineered spide...
