Stay Cool, Kobayashi-San!: A River City Ransom Story announced, out soon

A new River City spin-off has been announced by Atlus and it’ll be released on November 7th for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch. The game has been described as a beat-em-up featuring time travel, and will have multiple endings depending on your actions. The main character is Masao Kobayashi and he is joined by Kouki Mizoguchi and Kunio.


Stay Cool, Kobayashi-San!: A River City Ransom Story will feature local two player co-op with one player taking control of Masao while the other can choose between support characters. The last River City game that released was River City Girls, and in the review for that Adrian wrote:

I wanted to love River City Girls. A modern side scrolling beat ’em up, from a proven developer like WayForward, with bright, bold visuals, and two kick-ass heroines should have been great. Instead, thanks to way too much repetitive grinding, River City Girls is a bit boring. Something I never thought I’d say about a game that has high school children hitting zombie cheerleaders with wrenches.
