San! Ni! Ichi! Hajime!!! Stretch your muscles and embark upon the ultimate marathon of Japan in a crazy party racer! Hurdle barrels, outrun Shiba Inu and dive out of the paths of bicycles - all while wanging fruit at your opponents and dashing across planks precariously balanced over waterfalls - in an unreal marathon across the whole of Japan!
You can't spell Nippon Marathon without 'P', 'A', 'R', 'T' and checks letters 'I', we suppose... Solo play is supported, but grab up to four pads and enjoy the supreme silliness of gaming's greatest marathon.
See all of Japan!
Cross the entirety of the land of Nippon in a series of creative levels spanning busy city streets, village lanes, bustling markets, mountaintop shrines and even unsafe sake distilleries!
Go toe-to-toe with some of the coolest racers who ever did, er... race! Lobster-man J DARWIN, unicorn onesie-wearing Elizabeth Nishibori, school uniform fan Zenbei "Xen Bae" and the completely normal Snuguru Maestro are among the challengers vying for the podium!
Swinging poles! Giant face-slapping fish! Cyclists! Shiba Inu! Panes of glass! Traffic! False doors! Barrels! Rolling beams! Wobbly planks! Flying fruit! More Shiba Inu! Dodge and dive over the lot or suffer the painful and embarrassing consequences of physics-based collisions...
Tons of surprises!
You never know what will happen next in Nippon Marathon. Perhaps you'll find time for an impromptu spot of slot machine fun? Maybe a news anchor will jetpack in to interview you on the racetrack? Heck, anything is possible...
Need a bathroom break to brush pineapple juice off your onesie? Random pedestrian passing by your couch and wants to play? Whatever the cause, hop in and out for the ultimate, flexible party get-together!

This game takes you through locations in Japan which you're forced to race at, because you're being chased by different types of characters. It has both singleplayer and (+local) multiplayer and it is quite fun throwing watermelons at your friends. As an EA game, it still misses some core aspects, like being able to change your volume, but other than that this is a funny game to play at a reasonable price.
Nippon Marathon is a very enjoyable and fun game with a great competitive sense especially when you play it online against other players! it uses a simple but very interesting idea in which you take role of any 4 characters available in the game and pick your runner, then you try to finish the lines through colorful and well designed locations and of course overcome to may obstacles on your way to the end of the line and become the ultimate winner! the gameplay is very smooth and great and all controls works as the supposed to, and the visuals for the game is considerably great, Nippon Marathon is a great game for the price and if you are looking for some real challenge, this one could be a good choice to test your skills!
