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

The 1980s and 90s were home to numerous cartoons that existed primarily to sell toys to kids.

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.
