River City Girls Zero is Delayed

WayForward Technologies has announced River City Girls Zero is delayed to early 2022, forgoing its originally planned late 2021 release window.

Originally released in only Japan for the Super Famicom back in 1994 as Shin Nekketsu Koha: Kunio-tachi no Banka, the very first western release for River City Girls Zero is delayed, but will launch for Nintendo Switch.

Details regarding the delay confirm that WayForward want to make sure the release is “the most accurate port and best experience possible.” The delay was announced alongside new key artwork, which recaptures the classic art and style of the original Kunio-kun series. You can can view the new artwork above.

Outside of River City Girls Zero being the first time the game is releasing outside of Japan, it will include new features like an anime opening, manga-style cutscenes, and a new song. Further details regarding the port haven’t been confirmed, but we’ll likely get more information prior to its new release in early 2022.

WayForward are also working on River City Girls 2 with Arc System Works, which is set for a release across Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, PS4, and PS5 sometime in 2022, and will get a limited physical edition via Limited Run Games.
