River City Ransom Sequel Confirmed for WiiWare

by Jeremy HardinMarch 25, 2011

Miracle Kidz shared a brief update on River City Ransom 2 today.  Actually, there’s just one new bit: the game’s platform.

The long awaited sequel to the NES/Famicom classic was first announced last week for both PC and an undisclosed console.  Today, Miracle Kidz revealed the console to be Wii.  The game will be released as a WiiWare download title this summer.

The PC version is due for release in 2012 as an “online title.”

The update on River City Ransom 2, known as Doutown Nekketsu Monogatari 2 in Japanese, came as part of a larger update on Downtown Nekketsu Dodgeball, which is due for WiiWare release in May.  No further details on River City Ransom 2 were provided.

Jeremy's love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80's when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he'll answer, "the day I beat Zelda 2." To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers. Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
