River City Girls

One of the beat 'em up highlights last year was River City Girls by WayForward. It put a fun twist on the classic Kunio-kun series - requiring Misako and Kyoko to fight their way across the city in order to rescue their boyfriends Kunio and Riki.

During this week's Limited Run Games 'LRG3' livestream, it was revealed more adventures and action was planned for the girls, although there's nothing to reveal just yet. Here's the official word from WayForward:

Great news, River City Girls fans! We're thrilled to confirm that, as mentioned on @LimitedRunGames' LRG3 stream, more RCG action is on the way! We don't have any more details to share at this time, but stay tuned for updates in the future!

If you'd like to learn more about this new but old series from WayForward, why not check out our interview with the River City Girls' director, Adam Tierney.

It's also just been announced that Nintendo's Treehouse event taking place later today will feature "a title in a franchise new to developer WayForward". In a follow-up message, Nintendo has confirmed that this game is based on a third-party property.
