Latest revision as of 02:38, August 21, 2020

Snowboard Kids IV is a snowboarding video game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, developed by UTV Ignition Entertainment, French Arkedo (whom they had previously worked on Magical Drop V and the Gold Edition from that game) and Arc System Works and published by Atlus and Bandai Namco Entertainment. This is the fourth snowboarding game based on the series. Also, all of the characters from the previous Snowboard Kids games return in this game. This is the only video game to have three exclusive DLC characters (from Sword Art Online and Disney's Frozen) and one DLC character (from various Android smartphones). This game has been released on February 22, 2019. On February 12, 2020, a port for the Nintendo Switch was announced and has been released on February 28, 2020, which features Nintendo costumes for each character. As of March 13, 2020, this video game has now launched on Steam.

Gameplay Edit

And "EX Metamorphosis" where characters can upgrade to a new version of the character he or she is using for a short time. For example: Slash and several other main Snowboard Kids characters can turn into an anime version of themselves.
