UPDATE: River City Girls | February 2023
The River City Girls are Going Toe-to-Toe with this Production Update!
When we last checked in, we’d just gotten the River City Girls Zero figures and were starting to ship out copies of the game. In the two months since then, we’ve made tons of progress on the Zero Classic & Ultimate Editions, and production is in full swing on River City Girls 2. Here’s the latest scoop on:
River City Girls Zero: Classic Edition
We’re almost at the finish line! Production of the River City Girls Zero Classic Edition should finish by the end of this quarter, with shipping happening on the cusp of Q1 & Q2! They’re in assembly now, so it’s not much longer of a wait. When they start shipping out, or if they get delayed, we’ll come back to you with another update.
River City Girls Zero: Ultimate Edition
Production is fully underway on all items in the Ultimate Edition, and we should start receiving those components towards the end of Q1. Keeping in mind assembly, inspection, and shipping times, we estimate that the River City Girls Zero Ultimate Edition will finally come together in Q2 2023!
River City Girls 2
Disc and cart printing for River City Girls 2 is underway. PS4 discs are being manufactured and will come out first, followed shortly by the Switch carts and Xbox and PS5 discs. These should come through and ship out ahead of their initial estimated release window of Q3 2023. We should be able to give you a tighter release window in our next April update.
River City Girls 2 is really benefiting from some of the changes we’ve made to speed up production in 2023. These items are undergoing final approval from our partners and should be entering manufacturing shortly (in fact, the poster has already started printing)!
We see the Classic Editions finishing up and heading to you in Q3.
Ultimate Edition components are in the approval and sampling phase ahead of manufacturing! While it’s still a bit early in the process, we’re happy to say that it’s been smooth sailing so far. Check out some of our product samples above for a little taste of what’s to come!
Ultimate Editions will not be much farther behind Classic Editions, with production slated to end by Q3 2023. We’ll have even more to share about the Ultimate Edition in our next update, so keep an eye on your inbox and our blog for details.
There’s so much amazing River City Girls 2 merch, so let’s run down the list and see where everything is.

We’ll also start sending out those amazing art books from Fangamer as soon as they get to our warehouse.
