Curve Digital, Sumo Digital and Lucky Mountain Games have released a new gameplay trailer for Hotshot Racing which is headed to Nintendo Switch.

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.

Hotshot Racing will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2020.
