River City Girls 2 Launches Worldwide on December 15

It's no secret that we're highly anticipating River City Girls 2, the sequel to WayForward's seminal beat 'em up RPG. The Japanese version arrived at the beginning of the month courtesy of publisher Arc System Works, but the release date of the North American and European versions has been up in the air. Thankfully, things have wrapped up nicely and WayForward has now announced December 15 as River City Girls 2's worldwide release date.

We'll have to wait a little longer for one of the year's most anticipated beat 'em ups.

River City Girls 2 Arrives in Japan Dec. 1, North American Release Still Coming in 2022

If you asked about my two most anticipated co-op games of the year, I'd answer with Warhammer 40,000: Darktide and River City Girls 2. The PC version of Darktide launches this week, thankfully, but things are slightly more complicated for the Misako and Kyoko, the tough girls from River City. WayForward has confirmed that the Japanese and Asian versions of River City Girls 2 will launch on December 1, but the North American release is due later in 2022. That's cutting it close!

The game features a deliberately corny retro vibe, lighthearted humor, and 4-player local co-op. Unfortunately, poor controls an...

Grab a sci-fi blaster for gun games like House of the Dead Remake!

Martian Panic Alien Blaster: Nintendo Switch Accessory Review

The Switch is no stranger to light gun-style games, but these games lack a certain authenticity when played without a prop gun. That's where the Martian Panic Alien Blaster from Fun Box Media comes in. Originally bundled with the game, Martian Panic, the blaster turns a Joy-Con into an alien blaster with lights and sounds. It's a unique accessory that works with games like The House of the Dead Remake, not just Martian Panic.

Bubble Bobble Plushies Available in Very Limited Quantities from Strictly Limited Games

Taito's Bubble Bobble series started out in 1986 and remains popular to this day. Bubble Bobble 4 didn't get the world on first (though I like it), but there will be plenty more adventures for Bub and Bob in the future, including the upcoming Puzzle Bobble Everybubble. Merchandise for this series doesn't come to international markets very often, but Strictly Limited Games currently has a bundle of Bub and Bob plushies available to order. Quantities are already shipping and super limited, so don't delay!

Get your bats ready for this cult classic beat 'em up starring baseball ninjas!

'Ninja Baseball Bat Man' Will Get Its First Ever Home Release on iiRcade

One of the coolest things about iiRcade, the home arcade cabinet/console, is that it lets gamers purchase classic arcade games that have never gotten home releases before. We've seen it before with the stellar Warrior Blade: Rastan Saga Episode III and the less-amazing-but-still-charming Ninja Clowns, and we're about to see it again with Ninja Baseball Bat Man. Originally released by Irem in 1993, Ninja Baseball Bat Man is one of the rarest arcade games in the world, and it's coming soon to iiRcade.
