Colorful co-op focused beat 'em up River City Girls 2 artwork and logo

Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, River City Girls 2 will be a colorful and co-op focused beat 'em up that will see you smash your way through hordes upon hordes of enemies with a variety of unique characters. However, as befitting a sequel, River City Girls 2 will expand on pretty much every aspect of the original.

As such, you can expect to see four player co-op instead of simply two-player, all of the previous characters alongside two new additions, as well as an assortment of new moves, combos and character-specific abilities. River City itself will also feature a day and night cycle alongside more complex terrain, more shops, hazards and hidden areas, and most importantly of all, a lot more destructible objects to mess around with!

What all of this looks like in action, as well as who's the big bad you'll be trying to smack over the head with something ridiculous, that you can find out through the villains trailer below. Have a gander:

No release date has been announced just yet, but you can expect River City Girls 2 to arrive at some point later this year for PC and consoles. Once we get an actual date, I'll make sure to let you know.

Until then you can learn a little bit more about River City Girls 2, as well as follow any developer updates, over at the official website. Enjoy!
