PR - Release date and more announced in new Nippon Marathon trailer featuring a familiar voice

Hilarious multiplayer racer will be out just in time for crazy Christmas parties on December 17

PQube (London, UK) - November 12th, 2018 -  PQube and developers Onion Soup Interactive are already stretching their legs as they reveal the release date of Nippon Marathon with a brand new trailer featuring a song from no other than Diana Garnet, singer of the Naruto: Shippuden outro! The party racer that gets closer to a crazy Japanese game show than anything else will be out for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on December 17th!

Additionally, the developers have released new screenshots and details that offer a sneak peek of the game's seventh level "JINKO EKI STATION", where runners have to jump from bullet train to bull train, as well as Snuguru Maestro's story mode: the half-human, half-dog with the voice of an angel.


What could be more chaotic than having to run through a busy Japanese train station during rush hour with hundreds of salarymen and barriers? How about just missing the departing bullet train so you have to run on top of it and jump on a bull train mid race! Add some watermelons, classic banana peels and hurdles to that and - voila - we have ourselves a brand new Nippon Marathon track!

Story Mode: Snuguru Maestro

Story Mode allows you to choose and follow the journey of the four main characters from pre-Nippon Marathon to post-Nippon Marathon in a mix of races and visual novel with numerous chapters - one of them is Snuguru Maestro! Find out about his ancestry, where his love for watermelons comes from and most importantly: how in the world is he half-human, half-dog?!

Currently in Steam Early Access, Nippon Marathon is billed as Micro Machines meets Takeshi’s Castle – a hell for leather physics-heavy race across Japan. Slip into your Narwhal Onesie, Lobster Suit, School Uniform or… er… Dog Head and charge through locations across Japan!

Stay at the front of the pack to make your competitors disappear at the end of the screen and gain stars - then the race resets to the last checkpoint until the finish line where the racer with the most stars wins! Easy, right? Absolutely, if it weren't for throwable fruits, shopping carts, inflatable pineapples, collapsing tracks, clingy Shiba Inus, water melon rains and many more hilarious hazards!
