Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers Crosses the Finish Line 30 Aug. on Nintendo Switch
TOKYO – 21 Aug. 2018 – Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers, the colorful slot car racing party game from Sony publishing label UNTIES and Pocket for up to eight players online or locally, brings all-ages fun speeding onto the Nintendo Switch 30 Aug.
Grab a friend or seven and race toward first place in one of Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers’ 15 vibrant tracks spanning three distinct zones. Boost through tricky curves and pass up the competition online or locally. Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers’ intuitive controls make it easy to pick up, but hard to put down.
The race for number one doesn’t always take place on the track. Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers features four competitive battle modes that test driving skills in more creative ways. Zip across the arena to collect the most gold in Coins or crush the greatest number of boxes in Smash. Race to cover the arena with your color in Paint or play Goal, a game of soccer on wheels.
There’s plenty to be enjoyed by those wishing to drive solo. Master the battle maps alone before showing off in front of friends with practice mode. The game also features AI buddies for those that need some racing experience on the track.
Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers is a fast-paced party through a charming wonderland of environments with cute, toybox-inspired cars. Joyful pop tunes and a bright voxel aesthetic make unlocking and discovering new cars, then tinkering with their colors, a great way to spend time with friends.
“Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers makes you feel like a little kid all over again,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, UNTIES. “From the moment you hit start, it just has that playful wonder to it that takes you back to scooting race cars across the carpet as a kid. This time, though, it’s gathered around the TV with friends.”
Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers will be available on Nintendo Switch for $9.99 USD and will support English, Japanese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.
