Not an Early April Fool's Joke: River City Ransom 2 is Coming This Summer

In one of the more surprising, out-of-left-field announcements this year, Andriasang is reporting that Miracle Kidz is making a sequel to the 1989 NES classic River City Ransom, and it’ll be available for consoles in Japan this summer. Additionally, they’re apparently developing an online version for the PC as well, with hopes to release that in 2012.

Considering how much I loved the original beat-em-upĀ and its crazy use of fighting techniques, I really do hope this comes out in the US, especially that PC version.
