There are lots of racing games that fall below the radar. In modern times very few get noticed, either controlled by huge marketing budgets or generally players like what their friends like, this means niche titles simply don’t get through to the mass market. Kandagawa Jet Girls is one of those niche titles, and judging by the trailer you can expect varied gameplay and lots of colourful activity with the classic ‘blue skies’ anime art style reminiscent of Japanese arcade games from the 90’s.
Being published by Marvelous Europe and developed by HONEY PARADE GAME, Kandagawa Jet Girls is an action adventure driving game. With various weapons and mini games to explore. Besides the obvious arcade influence, there is that vibe of titles such as N64 classic, Waverace. In terms of modes and content Marvelous have revealed the following details:
Multiple Playable Characters: Seven teams, seven Jet Skis and fourteen different characters will be playable; with each Character and Jet Ski being interchangeable and selectable in offline and online gameplay modes. Choose your favourite characters and race to victory.
