Asphalt series developer Gameloft Barcelona is behind this hero-based combat racing game, in which iconic Disney and Pixar heroes and villains have been reimagined as high-speed road warriors that compete on racetracks that take inspiration from their unique worlds.
The racers that have been revealed for the game’s roster so far include Captain Jack Sparrow, Mulan, Mickey Mouse, Sulley, and the Beast, whose stats can be upgraded and will each possess their own unique skills that “can impact the outcome of a single race and dramatically change the way to play.”
You will have the chance to race around tracks such as the docks of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean, the wilds of The Jungle Book, the Great Wall of China seen in Mulan or the Scare Floor from Monsters, Inc., whether that be solo or challenging friends in local and remote multiplayer modes that come complete with cross-platform support.
There’s the promise that fresh content will always be “around the corner,” with new Disney and Pixar racers to “be added regularly and unique tracks will be released often,” with more details to be shared closer to launch.
“To work on a dream project like Disney Speedstorm, we are driven to create a game that feels like home for Disney and Pixar fans but is also unique to the arcade-racing genre,” explains Gameloft Barcelona vice president and studio manager Alexandru “Sasha” Adam. “The gameplay mechanics, the racer abilities and the location design were all tailored to serve our vision of a fast and gripping competitive experience. We can’t wait to share this vision with players around the globe.”
Disney & Pixar Games vice president Luigi Priore adds: “Disney fans are in for a full-throttle experience with the upcoming launch of the high-speed racing game Disney Speedstorm. Gameloft has driven some of our most beloved Disney and Pixar characters to new heights with their latest interpretation, while putting a fun spin on their unique circuits and abilities to keep competing fans on the edge of their seats.”
Disney Speedstorm will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2022.
