It may have leaked early, but now it’s official – WayForward is working on a new entry in the River City/Kunio-kun series in collaboration with Arc System Works.

There isn’t much information yet, but a press release states that the companies will “leverage the strengths of each studio and bring together a wealth of knowledge, an abundance of passion, and 60 combined years of video game experience across a wide range of technologies, genres, and intellectual properties.”

According Arc System Works producer Takomi Kaneko, it was WayForward’s enthusiasm for a female protagonist that won them over. In recent years River City has had something of a revival, with various titles in the sports and RPG genres.

We’ll learn more about River City Girls later this year.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
