Sony Music Entertainment Japan’s in house game publishing label Unties has announced the release of Gensou Skydrift for Nintendo Switch, PC, and PS4. The game is due to launch on PC and Nintendo Switch on December 12th 2019 with pre-orders going on live on December 5th. A PS4 version is slated for release sometime in the first quarter of 2020.
Players will race through the beautiful land of Gensokyo in this tag team kart racer where your partner is actually your vehicle. With 20 characters to choose from with their own stats and magical abilities, players must select two at a time before taking to the track where they can easily swap between the two on the go.
Speed your way through over 15 different stages all with pulse-pounding music to really get things going. Hoops dotted around each track grant the player a temporary boost of speed as well as charging the mana bar of characters.
Gensou SkyDrift offers players several modes to test their skills in, from the story mode to the time attack mode right up to an online multiplayer mode where up to seven people can race at once in an all-out racing extravaganza.
“ GENSOU SkyDrift offers something new for kart racing and Touhou fans alike,” said Mao Mitani, G&R Representative, UNTIES. “Since each character has personalized stats and an expansive list of spells to use, each race is unpredictable and delightful. Playing GENSOU SkyDrift is a rush, one with amazing depth and room for strategy.”
