While we are still waiting for the official release date for River City Girls 2 in the West, WayForward rolled out a brand new trailer featuring Marian, one of the game’s new playable characters. And she looks a little bit different from what many might remember of her.
Marian is, of course, the main heroine of Double Dragon series – which itself derives from Kunio-kun (River City) series. Marian is usually the one crashing in Double Dragon, but that’s not the case in River City Girls 2. And she’s packed with steel abs and fists that we don’t want to mess with.
Continue PlayStation.Blog, Bannon Rudis – one of the directors of WayForward – took the time to break down Marian’s history and her inclusion in the upcoming beat. Over the years, Marian has worked out her strength and learned to box and wrestle, but with lightning-fast movement speeds. So she is faster than other grappler characters you may have played like in other similar games!
She also has some special moves of her own. Mind Meld sees her grab an opponent from the sides and smack them in the face, while the KO Cutter is a blazing punch. Even when she joined River City Girlsshe has come a long way.
Marian is one of two new playable characters in River City Girls 2, the second being Provie, who first appeared in the series. River City Ransom: Underground on PC in 2017.
River City Girls 2 releases in Japan on December 1, while we in the West are still sitting in the “post-summer 2022 period”. We are approaching winter! But we’ll wait as long as it takes.
