Tanuki Sunset, the raccoon longboarding game is coming to PlayStation and Xbox next week

From Press Release:

25 OCTOBER, 2022 – Be a zoomy raccoony in Tanuki Sunset, the chill longboarding game with a breezy, retro vibe coming soon to consoles courtesy of publisher Digerati. Tanuki Sunset will launch 2nd November on PlayStation, and 4th November for Xbox.

A Nintendo Switch version is being self-published by developer Rewind Games and will be released at a later date (still TBC).

The debut title from Vancouver based studio, Rewind Games, Tanuki Sunset reflects the two man team’s shared love of listening to music while cruising on their longboards. It started to take shape as a game concept when they noticed a gap in the market, as co-creators Adir Fakiro and Jose Maria Leon explain:

“After stumbling upon videos of downhill longboard sessions, we came to realize there aren’t many games based on the sport. We instantly started imagining a raccoon grinding his paws on tarmac trying to drift down a windy road at high speeds. Who doesn’t love raccoons? They’re little daredevils and trouble makers.”

Tanuki Sunset is already available on PC and currently has a ‘Very Positive’ user rating on Steam, with 94% positive reviews.
