About River City Girls

About this game

There's trouble once again on the mean streets of River City, but this time the boys are in over their heads!

In this all-new entry in the legendary beat-'em-up series, hot-blooded heroes Kunio and Riki have been captured, leaving it to their hard-hitting girlfriends, Kyoko and Misako, to serve up some payback.

As you punch and kick your way across town - either solo or with a friend in a local co-op - you'll gain new skills, chow down on power-ups, wield an assortment of weapons, and unleash an arsenal of combos, throws, and special attacks that will leave the bad guys crying for mama - all in outrageous 16-bit style!

The awesome action is punctuated by manga story panels, anime cutscenes, and an epic synth-pop soundtrack. It’s an old-school rumble for a new generation!

Key Features:

  • Wild beat-'em-up action for one or two players!
  • Glorious pixel-art graphics plus anime and manga cutscenes!
  • Fantastic soundtrack featuring Megan McDuffee, Chipzel, Cristina Vee, Dale North, and NateWantsToBattle!
  • Six large city regions to fight through, complete with shops and side quests!
  • Loads of weapons, items, and abilities to power up your heroines!
  • Guest appearances by classic River City characters!

Overall I really like the game. In general the art style is good, but personally I don't like the combination of high and low resolution art that much. Thus far I've enjoyed the story quite a bit, and it's also nice to see a continuation of the River City franchise. The controls are better than most beat 'em up games I've played, but are still a bit tricky to get a hang of as with most beat 'em ups. I enjoy the animations of the characters, and the attack timing feels much better than a lot games I've played.

it's pretty fun, has its fair share of irritations though, the campy cutscenes and inability to keybind among them.

Great game, excellent voices, beautiful graphics, a bit short, but that comes with the genre. Would recommend to anyone interested in beat 'em ups

Hilarious! Way Forward is quickly becoming a favorite company of mine. I found out about them when I bought their take on Double Dragon back in 2012, Double Dragon Neon, and immediately loved it. River City Girls is in much the same way a nostalgic and faithful adaptation of the classic series on the N.E.S and etc River City Ransom, with copious amounts of humor that both make fun of, and pay tribute to both River City Ransom, and games like this. The Dojo for instance has one of the Double Dragon brothers (Jimmy I believe, the red one) as the Sensei, so go to the dojo, cram your face full of food, power up them stats, and put up your dukes!
