River City: Rival Showdown (JP) is a remake of the original River City Ransom by Arc System Works using sprites and 3D backgrounds as a part of the series 30th anniversary.


The game follows Kunio in a 3-day journey to figure out who kidnapped his girlfriend. This game features new paths and endings compared to the original.

The game also includes a fighting game known in Japan as Fighting of Double Dragon –2016- which include 14 playable characters.


The original version lacked local co-op but an update April 2017 added it back in. In addition, it added some nice ease of use features like seeing achievements for completed events on the lower screen as well as new icons on the map. The game also now allows massive purchases and selling of items at once at shops.
