Red Art Games announced on Tuesday that it will release a physical version of Momo-Pi Game Studio and Shueisha Games' Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimensions Nintendo Switch game in the West in the second quarter of 2024.

The special edition is exclusive to Red Art Games' online store. The company streamed a trailer:

Shueisha Games, Shueisha's game publishing affiliate company, released the game in July 2022.

The game features support for Japanese, English, and French.

The game features eight characters from Shonen Jump+ manga, including SPY×FAMILY's Loid Forger, "Tis Time for "Torture," Princess' Princess, Ghost Reaper Girl's Chloe, Summer Time Rendering's Ushio Kofune,  Kaiju No. 8's Kafka Hibino, Heart Gear's Chrome, Slime Life's Slime, and Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku's Gabimaru.

Shueisha Games describes the game:

Damien is an extremely creative and imaginative teenager born in a binational French-Japanese family. Damien's personal world shatters when his parents tell him that they decided to leave France to go live in Japan, a country he mostly knows about from all the manga he reads. Damien will have to call upon his superhero persona, Captain Velvet Meteor, to cope with the anxiety of being in a completely new place. He will face his fears and grow up through the power of his imagination by calling upon his favorite Jump+ characters to help him on his quest to escape a mysterious planet and an unknown monster army.

Sheuisha launched the manga based on the game by Rinaldo Wirz and Masato Ichishiki on Shonen Jump+ and MANGA Plus in August 2022.

Shueisha established the new wholly owned affiliated company Shueisha Games in February 2022.
