Kandagawa Jet Girls is an adrenaline-fueled jet racing game that blends tight cornering and aerial stunts with rapid-fire shootouts.

From the creators of Senran Kagura, Kandagawa Jet Girls takes you to Tokyo’s Kandagawa River for wet and wild racing action, and learn the heartfelt stories of the racers along the way.

The water is cool, the jet machines are warmed up, and the crowd is ready to go wild! Seven teams vie to become racing queens of the waterways of Tokyo, dazzling the crowds along the way with aerial stunts, precision shooting, and photo-finishes. Each team has their own backstories and motivations for racing, some for fame, some for honor, but all to win the coveted Kandagawa Cup.

Jet racing is the sport of the future and the waterways of Tokyo host some of the most daring and skilled young athletes 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. Each team can be customized with various outfits, and players can get under the hood to tweak their jet machines’ parts to improve its capabilities and tweak its handling.
Pick from the seven two-girl teams, discovering each of their hopes and motivations for racing as you play through 64 episodes of lighthearted racing drama in single-player stories. Players can switch up the roles of Jetters and Shooters on each team throughout the story mode, and can pair up any two characters from any team to create their own dream team in free mode. The title features online multiplayer with support for up to four players.

Adding to the fray against these seven teams, Kandagawa Jet Girls will launch with some of the stunning shinobi from Senran Kagura, who bring their experience with water guns and ninja training to the races. Sisters Ryōbi and Ryōna, representing the Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy, are included in the core roster of characters when the title releases in North America as a special gift to fans. Separately, Asuka and Yumi, leaders of the Gessen Girls’ Academy and Hanzō National Academy respectively, will join the lineup of characters as premium DLC after the title launches. Other DLC teams from the Senran Kagura series include Ikaruga and Yomi, Homura and Hikage, and Murasaki and Mirai.

The four teams will be sold separately and as a Senran Kagura Character Pass for $29.99.

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.

Kandagawa Jet Girls will be available physically as the day one “Racing Hearts” edition packaged with bonus goods for the PS4 with an MSRP of $59.99. The retail “Racing Hearts” edition will include the base game, two-disc soundtrack CD with 54 tracks, and a 5.5” x 7.3” softcover 60pg art book, all housed in a special box with exclusive art designed by Hanaharu Naruko.
