Sink into the Party Game where all shell breaks loose: L.O.B.S.T.E.R Mode out NOW!
Roll up! Roll up! L.O.B.S.T.E.R Mode has arrived in Early Access! The first of three planned Party Games for Nippon Marathon, L.O.B.S.T.E.R Mode is a pass-the-pad test of skill and endurance for 2-8 players.
After every player picks and names their own contestant, they must run Surfin’ Jack Cactus’ gauntlet: a precariously narrow, randomly generated assault course filled with swinging hammers, pneumatic boxing gloves, basketball cannons and irate American footballers, as well as paper targets that grant bonus time when hit. There may be some beached fish flopping around, too…
The player who records the longest distance before the timer expires wins the round, while all others shellfishly grab a letter. Between each round Surfin’ Jack Cactus spins his bonus wheel to see whether more time’s added to the clock or the course is re-rolled, and the sole winner is the player who manages to avoid being dubbed the LOBSTER, PRAWN or EBI (depending on the chosen length of the game).
And for our huge Asian fanbase, today's update brings an extra-special addition to Nippon Marathon. Japanese, Chinese and Korean localization is now available, plus our talented commentator Sora has recorded all the announcer dialogue in Japanese as well, for added authenticity.
We want to thank you all for the immense support so far, and we hope you love today's new features. This first big content update is just one of many we have planned for 2018, and we can't wait to expand the wacky world of Nippon Marathon even more in the coming months.
Like what you see?
So that’s all for now folks,
