In case you need a refresher about River City Girls 2, we have the following overview:

River City Girls 2 release date

Original: River City Girls 2 appears to have a release date in the west, and according to an eShop listing, it will be launching next week. The store page has it down for December 15, 2022.

The game just came out in Japan a few days ago. WayForward recently said it needed “a bit more time” for the North American and European launch “in order to deliver the best, most full-featured experience possible.” However, the company said that the overseas release is still expected by the end of 2022. Obviously there are only a few weeks remaining in the year, but assuming the eShop listing is correct, we’ll be seeing the title very soon.

River City Girls 2 Provie

WayForward is back with another character trailer for River City Girls 2, and has now shown off Provie.

She’s said to be a “block-busting breakdancer” with speed, agility, and numerous dance attacks. Provie will be taming up with Misako and Kyoko to battle yakuza and find her missing best friend.

Here’s some additional information about River City Girls 2:

River City Girls 2 Marian

WayForward is starting to highlight some of the characters in River City Girls 2, and a new trailer has come in that puts the spotlight on Marian.

Marian is among the playable characters included in the game. She has “hard-hitting grapples, brutal boxing techniques, and abs of steel”. Marian actually stems from the Double Dragon series and will now be teaming up with Misako and Kyoko.

River City Girls 2 Special Edition

River City Girls 2 villains

Arc System Works and WayForward have readied a new trailer for River City Girls 2 that provides a look at the game’s villains. These include Sabuko (the “disgraced daughter”), Ken (the “rich boy yakuza”), and Sabu (the “criminal patriarch).

Here’s some information about the game:

River City Girls 1 & 2

Original (8/17): Retailer listings have outed River City Girls 1 & 2 for release on Switch in Japan. It will be available on December 1, 2022.

What you’re getting here is pretty straightforward as River City Girls 1 and 2 will be available together in a single package. The first game has been on Switch for some time, but the sequel has yet to release.

River City Girls 2 delayed

WayForward has provided an update on River City Girls 2, announcing that the game will now be available in North America “sometime after its originally expected late summer 2022”. Specifics beyond that were not announced. However, some new cover art was shared on social media, which we have above.

River City Girls 2 was first revealed in June 2021. WayForward had hoped that the game would be ready for this summer, but that didn’t happen in the end.
