Marvelous announced that its upcoming action racing game Kandagawa Jet Girls, by the Senran Kagura and Valkyrie Drive developers, releases in Japan on January 16, 2020. Here are new screenshots and details.
The story of Kandagawa Jet Girls takes place in a world where “Jet Rae” is a major sport. The sport requires a “Jetter” who controls the machine and a “Shooter” that uses a watergun to shoot opponents.
Rin Namiki looks to follow the steps of her mother, a legendary Jetter, as a Jetter herself, and heads to Tokyo where she meets a cool beauty named Misa Aoi as her partner. The two continue to bond together as they race against rivals.
Here are some details on the game modes:
Story Mode tells a story that focuses on the protagonist Rin Namiki, with a story that is different from the TV anime version. The original story also features all the rival girls as lead characters.
The gameflow is split into two parts. The first is Adventure Part that features a story exclusive to the PS4 game.
The Jet Race part takes you through various courses in the near-future Tokyo setting, where you’ll take on rivals to aim for the top.
Free Mode allows you to freely race against CPU characters. You can also check out Time Attack to work on your racing game, or compete in Time Attack Mode with others in the online rankings.
Online Mode is a competitive mode that allows for four-player versus. You can play Casual Matches to have fun with friends or Ranked Matches to aim for the top of the rankings.
Here are the two different modes that are part of the Action Race:
