During a panel at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, that DualShockers attended, Aksys Games announced that it will publish Bergsala Lightweight’s Drive Girls in North America.
The game will land on the North American shores on August 11th, exclusively for PS Vita. If you’re wondering what it is about, it follows the popular Japanese trend of mixing girls with vehicles, popularized by series like Kantai Collection and Strike Witches. This time around, it features young ladies that can transform into sport cars.
“Play as five different Drive Girls and transform from superheroine to supercar and back again, as you smash through wave after wave of mechanised Bug enemies attacking your home of Sun Island. An action and driving hack ‘n’ slash hybrid, Drive Girls features an epic single player campaign as well as local and online multiplayer for up to four players.
Blast and burn rubber through the high-octane missions, and in between visit the garage to tune, modify and customise your rides.
Enjoy the unfolding story and interactions between the Drive Girls as they bond and get to know each other better, forming close friendships amidst the heat of the battle zone.”
Like those series, it also includes a healthy dose of fanservice, with destructible armor and sexy angles scattered here and there.
Drive Girls has already been released in Europe on May 26th, courtesy of Rising Star Games. Same as the European release, no further platforms have been added for North America.
You can check out their trailer here, if you want to see what it looks like. More trailers from the Japanese versions can also be found here, alongside a few screenshots.
