NES brawler River City Ransom is showing its age a little now, though it's still a fun little title, with fans of the game no doubt hoping the newly-announced sequel will feature the same quality playability.

Miracle Kidz has proudly announced River City Ransom 2 is in development for home consoles this summer, with a development team including staff members from the original game released way back in 1989. Sadly there's few other details, such as whether the game will be 2D or 3D and which consoles it's headed to, but with the game's Nintendo pedigree there's certainly a good chance it'll head to Wii, most likely on WiiWare.
