‘River City Ransom 2′ In the Works

19 Mar, 2011

One of the all-time classics, especially in the beat-em-up genre, River City Ransom is getting a long belated sequel. 20 years in the making, River City Ransom 2 is being developed by Miracle Kidz, the studio which houses most of the original’s developers. The game is expected to release on console sometime this summer in Japan, with a PC release coming next year. No word yet on any game details or specific consoles, but another of Miracle Kidz retro-style games (Downtown Smash Dodgeball) is on the Xbox Live Arcade and Wii Ware, leading most to believe such platforms are equally likely for River City Ransom 2.

    Awesome, the classics return. More beat-em-ups are a good thing, reminds me of the 90s.
