Nippon Marathon 2 is the ultimate "Bakage" (Japanese for "Stupid Game") where players race across a bizarre obstacle course until only one player remains.

Skill and chaos are united in one wonderful experience. Last time you raced across Japan, this time you take on the world. This is Nippon Marathon 2 - the Brave World Tour!

Onion Soup Interactive announced that the sequel to cult classic Nippon Marathon is coming soon to Kickstarter.

The campaign seeks to fund core development for Steam, Nintendo Switch, and an exclusive Arcade edition (published by exA-Arcadia). Stretch goals include (but not limited to) a visual novel Inspired story, as well as localisation, Steam Workshop implementation and the in-demand online mode. 

“It's been heartwarming to be bombarded by requests for Nippon Marathon 2 and so Kickstarter seems like the perfect place to fund the project, that way we can make a game that you, the community, want to play”, says lead developer Andy Madin.”There’s an intense desire from our fanbase to bring the Nippon Marathon online and this campaign can make that a reality.”

Backers can choose from a range of rewards, from becoming beta testers to exclusive sustainable merchandise, including a backer exclusive T-Shirt.
