Kandagawa Jet Girls ‘races’ digitally to PlayStation 4 this August within Europe and Australia

It is time to rev those engines as we are today thrilled to announce that HONEY PARADE GAME’s fast-paced Jet Ski racing adventure Kandagawa Jet Girls will launch digitally onto the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 4 within Europe and Australia on the 25th August 2020. Kandagawa Jet Girls will also be released globally on STEAM for Windows PC on the 25th August 2020 by XSEED Games / Marvelous USA, Inc.

Combining fast-paced Jet Ski racing with third-person-shooter mechanics, Kandagawa Jet Girls will see players enter the world of Jet racing, the sport of the future, comprising two contenders on a single Jet Ski that are known as the JETTER and SHOOTER. The JETTER is responsible for driving the Jet Ski through narrow courses while the SHOOTER can shoot at opponents to disable their Jet Skis. It’s a fast and vicious sport that sees rival academies compete against one another to see which has the best team.

In Kandagawa Jet Girls Story Mode, players will experience the journey of Rin Namiki, who dreams of becoming a professional JETTER like her mother, and upon arriving in Tokyo she befriends Misa Aoi into forming a Jet Race team at their academy. The unlikely friendship draws attention from the other academies and soon the heated competition to be the best Jet Racing team begins.

Alongside the story-driven-campaign players will find traditional offline racing in Free Mode, such as Time Attack and Quick Race, there are also four fun-filled mini-games and competitive online multiplayer modes for up to four players that would challenge even the most skillful of Jet Racers.

Kandagawa Jet Girls will arrive with tons of customisation options allowing players to choose their own look for their team and machine, including dazzling special effects. The customization is more than skin-deep, allowing players to go under the hood and fine-tune their jet machine’s performance to match their racing style and squeeze out every ounce of power. Players can play through the game solo or take their custom teams and machines online for multiplayer mayhem against up to three opponents in casual or ranked matches.

The fast-paced adrenaline fueled adventures do not end there as Marvelous Europe Limited have also confirmed that this European release of Kandagawa Jet Girls will also include Ryōbi and Ryōna, the infamous sisters from the SENRAN KAGURA franchise, as playable characters within the base game.

The remaining cast of SENRAN KAGURA characters, which include Asuka and Yumi, Ikaruga and Yomi, Homura and Hikage, and Murasaki and Mirai, will be released as premium downloadable content from the PlayStation Store post launch.

  • Honestly reading all these comments is depressing.
    Im just glad we get this game in europe~ And im absolutly glad we get all the senran kagura dlc aswell~
    Do you guys have any expectation when we can expect all the dlc to release? Will it be a “season pass” that lets you download them all in one?

    Will
  • No physical, no buy. I’ll be importing the US Day One edition. Yeah, I know the argument is that games sell more digitally now but the percentage isn’t big enough to ignore us physical collectors. I’ve been collecting since the NES days and have every Western Version of every Senran Kagura type game even if I’ve had to order it through Limited Run like Reflexions. I guess you make more money by making people ‘double dip’ but it sucks as a business model. Eventually people will just boycotting your releases. Especially with a title like this that isn’t going to pressure any existing system and therefore will likely end up on the Switch in six months time as a physical thus making people ‘triple dip’ in some cases.

    Marvelous, you should be ashamed of yourselves!

  • It’s a real shame that North American not only gets a physical release but even a Day One-Edition. And all of that despite the fact that these games always sell better here in Europe.

    I’m VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTED.

  • No Retail, no Buy. Sorry Marvelous. You made the wrong decision.
