River City Ransom 2 was announced for WiiWare and PC over a year ago, and was slated for release in 2012. Developer Miracle Kidz, however, has now confirmed via Twitter that this on hold indefinitely; this means it may never see the light of day at all.
The developer has said that it will continue to focus on original games moving forward. This is undoubtedly going to be disappointing for some retro gamers or fans of River City Ransom on NES, though news of WiiWare cancellations isn't much of a surprise at the moment.
