Following on from the mysterious rating we reported last week, Shantae developer WayForward and anime game gods Arc System Works have officially confirmed they are working together on a new entry in the face-smashing River City series.
Details are incredibly scant on River City Girls, the title of this exciting new project in, but the amazing talent that makes up these two developers all but guarantees that something wicked this way comes. "This is a really wonderful opportunity," said WayForward's "Tyrannical Overlord" Voldi Way. "Arc System Works is an extremely talented gaming company that we've admired for many years, and we are incredibly happy to be working with them. This new take on the River City universe is going to be a lot of fun".
Arc Sys, who are the current owners of the River City/Kunio-kun licence are equally pleased. "Everyone here is pleasantly surprised by the way the River City series is turning out," said Producer Takomi Kaneko. "I think the River City series has a reputation as a 2D fighting-action game with a lot of male fans, but then River City Girls appears! WayForward’s enthusiasm for a female protagonist won me over".
