As you may remember, last year the developer revealed its plans to bring the game to the Wii U, whether this is still the case, or whether the Switch version is meant to replace the Wii U version, is currently ambiguous.
First time hearing about Racing Apex? No problem — here’s an overview:
Racing Apex is a fast and fun arcade style racing game that takes inspiration from some of the first 3D polygon arcade racing games from 1988 (Winning Run) to 1992 (Virtua Racing) and adds modern gameplay elements of car combat and multiplayer mayhem.
A blend of modern multiplayer gameplay with art, audio and music straight from the early 90’s. A homage to the first polygonal 3D arcade racers!
Focus on High Speed Arcade Action with Arcade style handling that is easy to pickup for beginners but challenging enough for racers who want to master the tracks.
Select your driver and see if you can get them to the podium in the Single player campaign, local split screen and online multiplayer.
Choose from over 30 vehicles that can be fully modified and show the scars of battle on the track.
Race under bright blue skies across the globe. Each colorful region contains multiple track configurations for racing and arena style battles.
An arsenal of optional offensive and defensive items are available on track to take out your opponents.
Online global and national leaderboards show the worlds greatest racers. Get your name to No.1!
Amazing soundtrack from Waterflame (CastleCrashers, Layerz, GeometryDash) and Jason Heine from Heine House Entertainment (who provided music and audio design for Horizon Shift)
Racing Apex still doesn’t have a concrete release date or release window, nor does it have a price point.
