Origins of the characters in River City Girls 2

River City Girls is a spin-off of the Kunio-kun franchise, a series of video games that were initially exclusive to Japan. The games in the franchise ranged from beat-em-ups to sports games. Misako and Kyoko were originally introduced as love interests for the main protagonists, Kunio and Rikki, before being reinvented by WayForward Studios as the leads of the new River City Girls series. Several games in the Kunio-kun franchise have since been re-released in the states and localized as River City to match the new branding.
