Girls just want to have fun tomorrow, but only in Asia due to a River City Girls 2 delay everywhere else. It's not the worst news in the world, as the River City Girls 2 delay is happening so that the North American and European versions of the game receive "the best, most full-featured experience possible", which sounds fine to me. After all, it's not like we want bad games, right?
WayForward originally announced the game back in June of last year, so the delay may be frustrating for Western fans. It won't be a long delay, thankfully, as the game is still expected to launch by the end of 2022. So, within 31 days, we'll have River City Girls 2 in our digital hands, which is fine. Maybe complete another replay of the first game while you wait? For all we know, the original December 1st release date will only be extended a week or so, which wouldn't be bad at all.
If you have no idea what in tarnation River City Girls 2 is, it's a beat-'em-up adventure title where you can team up in local or online co-op. While doing so, you can explore a non-linear world that has more than 40 shops, with more areas to explore and objects to destroy compared to the first game. There are six playable characters and an enhanced combat system compared to River City Girls, which means you'll be able to try out guard crushes, elemental attacks, lift-off combos, and more.
You can also recruit defeated enemies or "hired heavies" to help you out on the battlefield, which is neat. However, you can only hire two at once, which should keep things fair. There's also an anime intro to get excited over, as well as comic book cutscenes, English and Japanese voiceovers, and a groovy soundtrack that should hopefully get your blood pumping.
