Rider’s Spirits Races into Digital Stores June 7th! (XB/PS/NSW)

Can You Be The First One Cross The Finish Line?

June 3rd, 2024 – Today Ratalaika Games and Shinyuden announce that Masaya’s legendary ‘Bike Daisuki! Hashiriya Kon‘ – or, Rider’s Spirits as it’s known in the west, is set to release on June 7th on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One & Series S|X and Nintendo Switch!

For the uninitiated, this evergreen cult classic at first seems heavily inspired by Mario Kart but looks can be deceiving! The game has features like being able to check on the actions of their competition, drop into the pit stop to fuel up and change items – more of a simulator style play but equally as fun!

The game has 20 different tracks which include asphalt and dirt, with each including their own unique design and obstacles to avoid like traffic cones, water ponds and even stone pillars. With each character in-game having their own skillset, players need to master various techniques to ensure they stay at the top of their game, as some stages are actually more difficult for certain characters.

Playing is Easy, Mastering is Not!

Each of the bikes and riders have their own unique attributes and qualities. Some bikes, for example, are faster in a straight line, whilst others have incredible grip. Find the bike and rider combination that suits you and aim for the elusive #1 spot!

Play head to head against the computer, or locally with a friend, and compete in a wide variety of racing tracks and game modes. Choose from an array of wacky racers and show off your riding skills. If things get ugly, use all kinds of crazy items in order to get advantage and be the first one to cross the finishing line!

The Game Includes Five Different Game Modes:

  • Rider’s GP: You race in several tracks and earn points based on your finishing place. The racer with more points at the end wins the tournament.
  • Time Trial: Try to obtain the fastest time
  • Endurance: Make a team of two racers and try to stay first during 1, 3 or 5 minutes, just remember if you run out of fuel you are out, so make sure to enter the pit stop to exchange racers
  • Battle Race (2 players): Compete with another player to see who is the first to cross the goal
  • Chicken Run (2 players): Run down a road and stop as close to the edge without going over
