Publisher Bushiroad and developer Operahouse have announced that the mobile and Nintendo Switch title Crayon Shinchan The Storm Called! Flaming Kasukabe Runner!! will be releasing for PC via Steam in Fall 2022. Players of this port can look forward to unlocking Steam-specific achievements.
Kasukabe Runner is an endless runner that launched on smartphones in Japan in 2014 and has since received over 8 million downloads. Players will dodge various obstacles while collecting sweets throughout the level. The controls are kept simple and require the players to only tap the screen in handheld mode and a control button in docked mode for Switch.
The game stars Shinnosuke, a five-year-old with a big imagination and an abundance of energy. He’s tasked with collecting sweets and Golden Balls in order to proceed to the next stage. Special missions are also offered, which unlock unique cosplay outfits for Shinchan and his friends to wear during gameplay. Those who have seen the anime will recognize many of the cast in the game.
Further, updated releases implement stage selection, allowing players to select the stage they wish to play through as opposed to the smartphone version of the game. Levels are marked as Normal, and each milestone unlocks notable new elements.
