I guess early 2017 is going to be the time for retro inspired beat-’em-ups to get launched, as River City Ransom: Underground is set for a release on February 27. This is hot on the heels of Double Dragon IV, but has been anticipated for much longer. The Kickstarter campaign for this officially licensed follow-up launched in 2013 with an original release date of September 2014. Three years isn’t so bad, though.
The only platform the game is currently slated for is PC (including Mac and Linux). The Kickstarter failed to reach any of the stretch goals that included PS4 and Vita ports, but I guess if the title were to do well enough, we could see an eventual console release. For now, we’ll just have to make due with this trailer.
