NASCAR Unleashed speeds to Nintendo 3DS and Wii

Activision have today announced plans to release NASCAR Unleashed on Nintendo 3DS and Wii later this year.

The newest entry in the NASCAR branded racing series, it promises to deliver the fastest and most exciting gameplay yet by allowing players to take their racer “to the streets” by driving on AND off some of NASCAR’s most famous tracks in this stylistically souped-up arcade racing competition.

After picking a turbo-charged race machine from 15 of NASCAR’s biggest names which include NASCAR Sprint Cup series drivers Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, and Joey Logano, players will then find themselves transported into a fast-paced, special effect laden thrill ride as they race around NASCAR tracks such as Daytona International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway (SM), Martinsville Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway.

Best of all, you’ll be able to break free from the oval as you explode onto pavements, beaches and off-roads of the surrounding cities. For both NASCAR fans and those new to the sport, you’ll be thrilled in discovering the joys ofa completely unchained stock car experience.

“NASCAR has been tremendous in that they’ve given us the flexibility to design different kinds of racing games for their vast audience,” comments David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision Publishing. “We really wanted to make something electrifying for all NASCAR fans, not just the hardcore. NASCAR Unleashed gives players a new style of speed and excitement, without sacrificing accessibility.”

Blake Davidson, vice president of licensing & consumer products at NASCAR and board member of NASCAR Team Properties, adds “NASCAR Unleashed is a wild and imaginative experience with few real world boundaries. By integrating NASCAR into a high octane, blindingly fast, home racing experience, we can deliver an entirely unique style of racing that will captivate players and help introduce our sport to new fans.”

NASCAR Unleashed is due to release this holiday for Nintendo 3DS and Wii.
