From disgraced daughter Sabuko to rich boy yakuza Ken and beyond, there’s no shortage of baddies to dispose of in River City Girls 2. WayForward’s brawlin’ sequel is due out this year, and the latest trailer is here to showcase the villains in need of a good wallopin’.
Check it out below, and stick around for a quick look at the four-player mode.
If you want to get into the nitty gritty of design, WayForward recently shared a peek behind the scenes in a livestream:
River City Girls 2 is in the works for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC.
WayForward describes the story:
Picking up where its predecessor left off, River City Girls 2 throws hot-blooded high-schoolers Misako, Kyoko, Kunio, and Riki—along with newcomers Marian and Provie—into the fight of their lives when an old foe returns to wreak havoc. But the girls (and guys) aren’t just giving up; they’re fighting back with new stat-altering accessories, new items, new weapons, and additional moves (such as Kyoko’s Cartwheel Kick and Misako’s Lightning Rider), along with brand-new abilities like guard-crush attacks and lift-off combos. Recruited foes are back to assist in battle—this time two can be held at once—and players can now enlist the help of hired henchmen who pack even more of a punch!
