Press Release - Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade is Coming!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - December 19, 2019 - Japanime Games is excited to partner with Don't Panic Games to release Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade, an action-packed deck-building game inspired by the cult anime powerhouse! Designed by Florian Siriex (Imaginarium) and Johan Benvenuto (), this new game allows you to live out your dreams as a Space Cowboy! Chase criminals across the solar system with detailed minis of all the main characters: Spike, Jet, Faye, Ed (with Ein!), and their nemesis: Vicious! Each character has a different asymmetrical playstyle -- with players able to make use of the other player's abilities, but only at a cost. As the game draws to a close, Vicious will be unleashed and players will compete to score the most points.

Eric Price, President of Japanime Games, is thrilled to help bring this game to the American market. Eric said, "Fans of Cowboy Bebop are really going to enjoy how well this game represents the show. It's important to us when finding anime-based games that they feel true to the show that they're based on. After all, we're fans too!"


Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade is a competitive deck-building game for 2-4 players in which you play one of the four members of the famous Bebop crew.

Each player tries to prove that he is the best bounty hunter by getting the most reputation points at the end of the game. To do so, they will have to capture the criminals wanted by the ISSP, in a spirit of limited collaboration.

During the game, players will be able to buy cards that will allow them to improve their personal deck, in order to better manage the resources necessary for their victory. They will also be able to move from planet to planet with gas or use their special abilities and even those of other players if they are together in the same location.

The game ends when the terrible Vicious is captured or has fled. Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade will be available Spring 2020 on or at your local game store.
