River City Girls Zero Pushed from Late 2021 to Early 2022 Launch

River City Girls Zero


WayForward is porting classic beat 'em up Shin Nekketsu Koha: Kunio-tachi no Banka—originally released for Super Famicom in 1994—as River City Girls Zero, complete with a new opening cinematic, new manga cutscenes, and more. While the game was originally planned for a late 2021 launch, publisher Arc System Works and developer WayForward announced a delay that shuffles it back to early 2022.


Here's the full message, which cites the desire to "achieve the most accurate port and best experience possible" as the reason for the delay.



WayForward describes the game, which is currently in the works for Switch and other unspecified platforms:


River City Girls Zero lets players experience the first time that Misako and Kyoko teamed up with Kunio and Riki to take to the streets in hard-hitting, curb-stomping action. While the graphics, music, and gameplay all remain true to the classic 16-bit Super Famicom release, this version marks the first time the 1994 game will be localized for the west. A new opening cinematic, new manga cutscenes, and new theme song by River City Girls composer Megan McDuffee have been added as well. Set out solo or team up with a friend in local co-op and discover how the River City Girls story began!
