Nippon Marathon Racing Towards December Release

By Lucy Wood, 28 days ago
PQube has announced the release date for party racer Nippon Marathon via a new trailer featuring a song performed by Diana Garnet (Naruto: Shippuden outro).


Nippon Marathon is described as Takeshi’s Castle meets Micro Machines. The insane obstacle race across Japan features ragdoll physics, bizarre hazards and weaponised fruit. Up to four local players can compete in races, earning stars by getting far enough ahead of the other competitors that they disappear off the screen. The race will then reset to the previous checkpoint until the player with the most stars reaches the finish line.

The four main characters each have their own storyline, available in Story Mode as a mixture of visual novel and races.
