WayForward showed off a new look at River City Girls 2 at the Nintendo Indie World Showcase today. The beat-’em-up sequel is coming out next summer for Switch and other platforms.

The first River City Girls released in 2019. It is part of the long-running Kunio-kun series (known in the U.S. for games like River City Ransom).

The sequel adds two new characters, new moves, and includes a new city to explore that WayForward says will be bigger than the one in first River City Girls.

You can watch the new trailer above.
