Local Co-Op Added to River City Ransom SP in Japan
River City Ransom SP, a 3DS revamped version of the original River City Ransom, came out in Japan last October. It has now been updated to version 1.1, and this new update added local co-op.
This is a two-player co-op mode to allow two people to play locally together. Along with this major addition, the update also brought with it several helpful new features:
- You can check events on the lower screen’s map, with icons
- Cleared events from the event encyclopedia can be displayed
- You can collectively sell equipment at the second-hand shop
- You can collectively purchase items
The update also included bug fixes.
It’s unclear if River City Ransom SP will be brought to the West, but since last year saw the localization of 2013’s River City: Tokyo Rumble, it doesn’t seem out of the question.
