Today Xseed Games reached out with a press release announcing the western release of Kandagawa Jet Girls.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, the game was developed by the team behind the Senran Kagura series, with Producer Kenichiro Takaki at the helm.
It was originally released in Japan only for PS4, but it’s getting an additional platform for the west and it’s coming for both PS4 and PC.
The game is also getting a physical “Racing Hearts” edition for PS4 priced at $59.99. The digital version on the PlayStation Store and Steam will cost $49.99.
A release date has not been announced besides a generic “summer 2020.”
Here’s how Xseed officially describes the game:
“Jet racing is the sport of the future and the waterways of Tokyo host some of the most daring and skilled young athletes of Japan on their high-speed jet machines. Drivers, also known as ‘Jetters’, pair up with a ‘Shooter’ armed with water weapons to blast away the competition. They must wow spectators if they want to win, building up their boost meter with spectacular aerial stunts while dodging obstacles and evading enemy attacks. Pick from the seven two-girl teams to race with, discovering each of their hopes and motivations for racing as you play through 64 episodes of lighthearted racing drama in single-player, or go online and put your skills to the test racing against other players.
Kandagawa Jet Girls will arrive with tons of customization 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 “Racing Hearts” edition will include the base game, a two-disc soundtrack CD with 54 tracks, and a 5.5” x 7.3” softcover art book with sixty pages, and a special box with a cover designed by Hanaharu Naruko.
As a bonus, the western release will include guest characters Ryobi and Ryona from the Senran Kagura series, which were sold as DLC in Japan.
Asuka and Yumi will be the first to be sold as additional DLC after launch, and more girls from the popular Ninja-themed franchise will come afterward, with details to be announced at a later time.
