Curve Digital, Sumo Nottingham and Lucky Mountain Games have confirmed that Hotshot Racing will release on Nintendo Switch this week.
This colourful retro-inspired racing game has looked to “emulate and expand upon the classic ’90s arcade racing game formula.”
There are eight different drivers to choose from that each has their own personality and four-wheeled rides, you will race around 16 sun-baked tracks from around the world.
With polygonal visuals, the game’s single-player modes will run at a silky smooth 60 frames per second.
The traditional Grand Prix mode will see you compete in a multi-round championship, while Time Trial will challenge you to secure the fastest lap time for the online leaderboards.
The multiplayer game modes can be played both online and offline, with support for up to four-player local split-screen co-op.
In the Cops and Robbers mode, the criminals need to avoid being captured to be rewarded with a big cash bonus before the police hunt them down. Whereas Drive or Explode will see you race to reach checkpoints to prevent exploding.
“This game has been on a massive journey for the past decade from the initial concepts to Kickstarter pitch and now on the final stretch to launch,” explains Lucky Mountain Games creative director Trevor Ley.
“We can’t wait to see all the in-game leaderboards light up with the fastest times from players and see multiplayer servers full to the rafters! We have plans for this game past launch as well, so it’ll be great to see what the world thinks of the game post-September 10th.”
Sumo Nottingham studio production director Tom Turner adds: “As soon as we saw Hotshot Racing we absolutely fell in love with the concept, and working with Trevor on the game’s development has been a fruitful and joyous experience.
“Sumo Nottingham is known for producing some of the most beloved arcade racing experiences on the planet and we believe Hotshot Racing stands proudly side-by-side the best racing games we’ve developed.”
Hotshot Racing will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 10th September 2020 priced at £15.99 ($19.99).
