A few months ago we got an announcement for River City: Rival Showdown going western. After that, we wait for more information from Natsume, and today is the day we got it. Natsume has set the month for the game’s release date, not the full date. Kinda sad, isn’t it? But, at least we still got something.
River City: Rival Showdown will be released this November for $29.99. There will be a bonus key chain for a retail limited edition of the game.
As a reminder about River City: Rival Showdown, we got a rundown and the game’s key feature from Natsume.
River City: Rival Showdown, released in Japan to celebrate the Kunio-Kun series’ 30th anniversary, takes the original story of River City Ransom and adds multiple story paths, multiple endings, and a dynamic fighting system that evolves the Kunio-Kun series in a new, exciting direction!
One night, Kunio is attacked by two mysterious individuals. On top of that, Riki’s girlfriend has disappeared, and it’s up to Kunio to find out the truth! Kunio has just three days to unravel the mystery, and he’ll need your help to take down all who stand in his way. Take on some familiar faces from the River City games and meet new ones in this fast-paced beat-’em-up RPG.
