Retro arcade racer revealed.
Do you remember Virtua Racing in the arcades? It came out in the mid 90’s and blew everyone away with its smooth sharp edged polygons, and was the start of SEGA’s super successful Virtua series that spawned all kinds of games like Virtua Cop and Virtua Fighter amongst others.
Now you can relive your arcade racing dreams with Racing Apex, a brand new racer that shares more than a passing resemblance to SEGA’s classic Racer. The good news is this isn’t just a straight up racer. Nope this game is what would happen if Virtua Racing and Mario Kart had a sordid dirty affair. Racing Apex introduces vehicular combat, along with a multitude of weapons along with local and online multiplayer!
Publishing Director for Curve Digital, Simon Byron, said “We’re ecstatic about working with Lucky Mountain Games on Racing Apex. We know that there were a lot of other publishers clambering to sign this title, and we’re beyond happy to have Trevor and the team on board.”
Racing Apex launches on Steam and consoles in 2018, and I don’t mind saying, I’m a little excited about this one. Check out the trailer below
