River City Girls 2 Out Now on All Platforms and Features Online Cross-Play Co-op!

When we interviewed WayForward about River City Girls 2 just ahead of launch, the developer let slip that their new beat 'em up RPG would feature cross-play. Now the game has launched (in all regions) at last, and it does indeed feature cross-play co-op! Even Xbox and PlayStation gamers can team up together. That makes River City Girls 2 an even more exciting proposition, to say nothing of the huge world, engaging story, fine-tuned combat, and 4-player local co-op.

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 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 ...

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.

River City Girls 2 Will Have 4-Player Co-op and Fearsome Foes

We swear we’re not specifically a River City Girls fan site – we cover other games too! This week has been loaded with news for the beloved beat ‘em up series, though. First, WayForward announced a release date for the console versions of River City Girls Zero, and then a date for the Steam version arrived a few days later. Now, WayForward has dropped a bombshell for River City Girls 2: the game will feature 4-player co-op! That’s going to make for some chaotic brawling when the game arrives later this year.
