imageLast year, Miracle Kidz, the developer behind Downtown Smash Dodgeball, said they canceled River City Ransom 2 which was in development for WiiWare and PC. Enter Combit Studios that developed a cross-platform 2D gaming engine for casual titles called FWD.


The Canadian-based indie developer contacted Million that holds all of the Technos licenses like Double Dragon and Kunio-kun (i.e. the original series River City Ransom is based on) and got a license to develop River City Ransom 2. Combit says they will work closely with Million on the title.


River City Ransom 2 is slated for release in August 2014 for PC with other platforms under consideration. Combit will launch a crowdfunding campaign this summer to buy Karma Jolt raise money for the game.

    One of their stretch goals should be not changing their minds halfway in like most of the other blips on the Kunio-kun radar these past few years.

      Oh man, I laughed even though it’s a depressing prospect if it turns out to be true. Hope that THIS team can actually deliver some River City goodness.

    What is this FWD? I can’t really find anything about it due to its super-common initialism.
