Introducing the Drive Girls! Five Supercar Transforming Supergirls are Ready to Roll on PlayStation®Vita
LONDON, UK – 25th April 2017 – Rising Star Games today announced that the turbo-powered PlayStation®Vita smash Drive Girls is scheduled for physical retail and digital release in Europe on 26th May. An experience straight out of Japan, Drive Girls is developed by the legendary Tamsoft and features characters designed by popular illustrator UGUME. This fast-paced story-driven game transports you to a world where it’s normal for humans to transform into supercars – a world that is being invaded by mechanised Bug enemies! It’s up to the Drive Girls - five supercar transforming supergirls - to defend their home of Sun Island, cross the finish line and save the day.

Featuring an extensive single-player campaign, as well as local and online multiplayer for up to four players, play as any of the five Drive Girls in this action, driving, hack ‘n’ slash hybrid, and battle it out in human or supercar form to reign victory over the enemy. Deal devastating combo attacks and let loose using Over Drive moves to light up the screen with Bug-punishing pyrotechnics.

Players can boost the Drive Girls’ stats in the garage by tuning and customising their ride with new parts and sleek decals using the currency earned after every mission. The tighter your tuning, the more protected the Drive Girls are against losing their armoured clothing in combat. In between battling, driving and modding, players can also enjoy the cheeky chatter and interactions between the five heroines as they bond, get to know each other better, and form close friendships amidst the heat of the battle zone.

“We are delighted to partner with Rising Star Games to bring Drive Girls to the wider audience in Europe and beyond”, said Mr. Natsumi Jimbo, Director at Tamsoft. "We are thankful to our fans all over the world for their continued passion and interest in our games, and we hope to continue to serve them and create new fans as we embark on exciting future projects”.

“We’ve been broadening our portfolio of memorable titles from the West in recent years, but Rising Star Games absolutely remains the Home of Japanese games ”, said Martin Defries, Managing Director, Rising Star Games. “Partnering with esteemed developer Tamsoft, and the authentically Japanese gameplay and aesthetic of Drive Girls, backs up our ongoing commitment to bring quality Japanese titles to a global audience”.

Developed by Tamsoft and published in Europe by Rising Star Games, Drive Girls is scheduled for physical retail and digital release on PlayStation® Vita, on 26th May.
