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.

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 skilful 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

About Granblue Fantasy: Versus

Japan’s megahit RPG Granblue Fantasy has topped the charts, charming players across the globe with a plethora of lovable characters and story-driven mechanics. Now, ARC SYSTEM WORKS and Cygames have teamed up to bring the universe to home console in an action-packed head-to-head fighter.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus includes an RPG mode that features an all-new, original story told through beautifully rendered cut-scenes.

Along the way, they develop their fighters with a comprehensive character and weapon upgrade system recognizable to all Granblue Fantasy fans. The mysterious “hooded figure” (a.k.a the “Chaos Bringer”) featured in Granblue Fantasy’s popular “What Makes the Sky Blue” series of events, was revealed at Granblue Fantasy Fes 2019 as the final boss for RPG mode.

About Rune Factory 4 Special
The curtain rises on a beautiful sunny day, as the hero tumbles from the heavens… After being saved by the dragon Ventuswill, the hero comes to live in the local castle as a newly designated ruler and begins life anew while developing the town, making difficult decisions, and cultivating the soil. While exploring a nearby forest, the hero encounters and defeats a monstrous butterfly. Left in the fallen monster’s place is a mysterious young girl. Seeking the answers as to why, the hero’s search for the truth will lead to a grand adventure that will shake the very foundations of their world…and draw them closer to the secret buried in their own lost memories.

In this standalone story, players choose to play as a male or female hero and will encounter a diverse cast of potential suitors and other loveable townsfolk. As the newly-appointed prince or princess, royal duties are fulfilled by issuing orders to help the town prosper, or by taking a more relaxed approach to governance by raising crops and helping townsfolk. Should some dungeon adventuring be on the day’s itinerary, a vast array of weapons along with magic can be crafted or bought for battle against dangerous foes—companions or friendly monsters can also join to aid the player during their travels.

Published in Europe and Australia by Marvelous Europe Limited, Rune Factory 4 Special ‘Archival Edition’ for Nintendo Switch is available to purchase from the Marvelous Games Store, while the standard edition is now available physically at selected retailers and digitally from the Nintendo eShop.
