River City Ransom EX, for the Game Boy Advance, has been shipped to nationwide retail stores. This enhanced version of the NES classic is a mixture of action oriented fighting, and role playing elements. The River City story puts the player in the shoes of Alex and Ryan, two high school students who have to save the school, and Ryan's girlfriend, from the evil gang leader Slick. Atlus U.S.A., the games publisher, calls it the "RPG of side-scrolling fighting games", and plans on creating other titles in the franchise.
River City Ransom EX offers many extra features, including the ability to load previous data and fight against yourself and friends, and a gang which can include reformed bosses, among others. Visit the official River City Ransom EX website for more information.
