    An 'inside scoop' on WayForward's new games.

    Following the recent updates for Persona 3 Reload / Persona 5 Tactica and Bandai Namco panels at Anime Expo 2023, another publisher is actively looking forward to sharing news at the event.

Directors from WayForward’s Shantae, River City Girls, and RWBY titles will be panelists. The WayForward panel’s official description on the Anime Expo 2023 schedule page confirms that “new game reveals” will be made. Moreover, Anime Expo 2023 attendees may also look forward to behind the scenes discussions, a Q&A session, trivia, and giveaways.

    WayForward’s most recent work is River City Girls 2, which was officially licensed by Arc System Works. Earlier this month, over 100 changes and adjustments were made to River City Girls 2 in the new performance patch. The Nintendo Switch version received substantial improvements, but the game does not support 60 FPS on the hybrid platform. Moreover, the update adds the ability to replay the game on New Game+ for a second time. 

    Lastly, River City Girls 2 is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Anime Expo 2023 is set for July 1 to 4 from the Los Angeles Convention Center in California.
