River City Girls from WayForward is about cracking skulls to rescue your boyfriends

WayForward has announced River City Girls for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. And dang, you guys, it has a great trailer. It has a gorgeous anime aesthetic in its vibrant 16-bit pixel art, and it has rocking music and action to match. Top to bottom, River City Girls just looks fun, and it feels like a truly modern River City experience. Check out the reveal below!

In River City Girls, you play as tough-as-nails high schoolers Kyoko and Misako. They have to rescue their kidnapped boyfriends, which are usual protagonists Kunio and Riki. The game will feature all the jazz you’re used to in this series. There will be combos, special attacks, counters, lots of enemy types, leveling up via experience, gear to equip, and (of course) food to chow down on. There will also be sidequests and NPCs to talk to, some of whom are drawn from previous series entries.

I’m really loving everything I’m seeing about this game, from the visuals to the non-forced girl power theme. Major props to WayForward. What do you think of this game?

River City Girls will release digitally on Sept. 5, 2019 for $29.99. A physical release from Limited Run Games will come at a later, unannounced date.
