Nintendo Switch Online subcribers can try the full version of River City Girls for free. Nintendo announced it is the latest game in the Free Game Trial series. Starting on December 6, 2022, people will be able to go through the beat’em up. It will also be on sale during the event, as is common for titles participating in the program.
River City Girls is an original spin-off in the beat’em up Kunio-kun series. (Outside Japan, the NES entry ended up localized as River City Ransom.) Misako and Kyoko’s boyfriends Kunio and Riki are kidnapped, and the girls go around town beating up enemies to rescue them. The title normally costs $29.99. However, as part of the promotion, it is temporarily $14.99 in the eShop until December 11, 2022.
This comes ahead of River City Girls 2‘s debut. The game is already available in Japan. However, there is no worldwide release date for the Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC game yet. It still has a 2022 release window, however.
River City Girls is available for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and PC. The sequel is out in Japan and is expected to appear worldwide before 2022 ends. The Nintendo Switch Online Free Game Trial for it will last until December 12, 2022.
