Update: The press release also mentions “Developed by Honey∞Parade Games and to be published for the PS4™ system in North America and globally on Windows PC via Steam by XSEED Games.” We have updated the title and release date below.
XSEED Games have announced the release date for anime jet ski racing game Kandagawa Jet Girls.
As stated in the press release (via email), players control jet skis piloted by cute anime girls. One steers, while the other blasts away the competition with high-power water-guns across the waterways of Tokyo.
Aerial stunts build up a boost meter, all while you have to dodge the other teams (seven in total). There is a 64 “episode” campaign, along with multiplayer.
The game will also be available physically in the day one Racing Hearts edition. Available for $59.99, it comes with a two-disc soundtrack CD (with 54 tracks), a 5.5″ x 7.3″ softcover 60 page art book, all within a art box designed by Hanaharu Naruko.
You can find the opening movie below.
You can find the full rundown (via XSEED Games) below.
From the creators of SENRAN KAGURA, experience a new kind of racing game that blends tight cornering and aerial stunts with rapid-fire shootouts, all with a shimmering, cheerful aesthetic. Choose from one of seven different two-girl teams, customize your jet machine, and race for the prize while grabbing extra weapons and items on the go. Use your boost engine wisely, then fill it back up by performing tricks for the crowd. Master your craft, and your teamwork, and you’ll rule the Kandagawa!
A Wet, Wild Ride
Dash down the river and leave the competition in your wake! Zoom off of ramps, pull flips and twists in the air to fill your boost engine, dodge or blast obstacles, find hidden powerups, and hose down your opponents while being sure to evade their return fire!
Go Under the Hood and Customize
Winning races and challenges will unlock hundreds of customization options, from the girls’ swimsuits and hairstyles to the jet machines’ skins, decals, and special effects. The inside of the jet machine is as customizable as the outside, allowing players to fine tune its performance to best match their driving style.
Tackle the River Alone or Compete Online
Experience the game’s robust Story Mode with each of the seven two-girl teams having their own unique multi-episode arc totaling 64 episodes of lighthearted racing drama, or go online for multiplayer mayhem against up to three opponents in casual or ranked matches.
Ryōna and Ryōbi from SENRAN KAGURA are included as a bonus team in the Western release, with more of their ninja friends on the way as premium DLC.
Kandagawa Jet Girls launches Summer 2020 for Windows PC (via Steam) globally, and PlayStation 4 in North America.
