In this 16bit arcade style game, you play one of four potential characters. Kunio, Riki, Misako, and Kyoko have been accused of a terrible crime, and must clear their name of it. River City Girls Zero - classic arcade game is actually a release of a 1994 game from Japan. It is being released outside of Japan for the very first time. Although this is an older game, new cutscenes, music, and an animated intro have been added to help make the game a little bit better.
Use unique moves to get ahead
Each one of the 4 characters in the game have their own unique moves. You can switch between these characters to take advantage of those skills. You’ll need them too. The game covers a broad range of locals from fair grounds to the beach, most of which you’ll be sparring with someone in.
Not for everyone
This game is not meant for everyone, and the developers are aware of it—the game opens with a joke on that very topic. This game is being brought out specifically for fans of the genre, and for those who fell in love with the more modern works.
If you have played the future sequels based off this game such as River City Ransom and liked them, this game was meant for you. If you are new to the series or aren’t in love with the characters however, you are unlikely to enjoy the game.
Finishing the game has some unexpected perks put in by the developers. You’ll get a new animated sequence, a new McDuffee song, and best of all, you’ll be able to play the sequences shown in the intro, outro and end credit. These unique aspects of the game give you something to look forward to when finishing the game, and they even have a section where you can flip through the original Japanese manual. It’s a very nice addition for fans.
Very short gameplay
This game won’t take you very long to complete, with fast players familiar with the game able to finish in just 1-2 hours, and new players finishing it out in about 4. If you were hoping to spend days or even weeks playing the game you may feel disappointed, but the game is perfect for a weekend warrior.
