Wayforward games has announced that River City Girls, a sequel to the classic River City Ransom from Techno back in 1989, is coming to Switch, Xbox and PS4 on September 5th.

The game features some gorgeous hand-drawn sprites, with teh girlfriends of the series' original protagonists taking to the streets to rescue their boyfriends. Misako and Kyoko can not only kick-ass throughout the mean streets, but they're also able to talk to locals, buy upgrades and upgrade your stats, all in order to improve your fighting abilities, which include weapons usage and tag-team combos.

Wayforward's signature smooth animation is present, fans may know their Shantae franchise which has a similar aethetic, so we're likely to get some very clean and cute movement throughout.

From the Press Release:

River City Girls stars Kyoko and Misako, two street-tough high-schoolers who must fight their way through the six regions of River City to rescue their kidnapped boyfriends, series mainstays Kunio and Riki. Along the way, they’ll utilize an arsenal of combos, counters, throws, and special attacks; battle an assortment of enemies; accept numerous side quests; level up with experience points; interact with NPCs (including guest stars from past River City games); and shop for a variety of items, food, and gear to boost stats and unlock new abilities. The girls can even wield weapons and recruit defeated foes to join them in combat!

The one- or local two-player bare-knuckle brawling is complemented by spectacular 16-bit-style graphics and an epic synth-pop soundtrack (featuring NateWantsToBattle, Chipzel, Christina Vee, and Megan McDuffee!), while the story roars to life via glorious anime cutscenes and manga-style intermissions.
