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 Coconut MAC Studios 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.

Gameplay

Snowboard Kids IV has new features such as "Halfpipe Battle", a game mode where players battle it out on halfpipe themed courses. Players can even battle in colored teams on that game mode. 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 the other main Snowboard Kids characters can turn into an anime version of themselves.
