Many knew the franchise River City Girls thanks to the great game that debuted on the last generation of consoles and that captures the style of old school beat ’em up. However, this Kunio-kun spin-off series was created several decades ago and very soon you will be able to play the title that gave rise to it. If you like me River City Girls and you still have doubts about the history of the series, then you should let Kyoko and Misako explain what their original adventure is about and take a look at the great physical editions that will be of the game.
As we told you, this title was going to debut before 2022, but in the last weeks of last year it was delayed until the beginning of 2022.

What is it River City Girls Zero?
As its name indicates, it is a game that gave rise to the series River City Girls. He was placed on Zero retroactively because, despite being the first installment (called Shin Nekketsu Koha: Kunio-tachi no Banka), it did not reach America and did not have as much reach as its sequel, River City Girls. So something like this happened Mother 2, which came to the West as EarthBound and the original Mother (after the success of EarthBound) was later localized to the West as EarthBound Beginnings.
In this 1994 game, the protagonists are her boyfriends Kunio and Ricky, who they look for in River City Girls. Despite not being a new game, it will be the first adaptation for modern consoles and will have many additions, among which, obviously, the complete localization, great art and a fantastic opening animation, as well as manga scenes and an unreleased theme. .
Unfortunately, the premiere date is not revealed in the trailer, but it is stated that it will debut soon.
In case you missed it: WayForward also works in River City Girls 2 and we could already see gameplay.
