Retro-inspired Hotshot Racing announced for the Spring

by on February 26, 2020

Curve Digital has announced a retro-inspired racing game from Lucky Mountain Games and Sumo Digital.

Hotshot Racing channels arcade racers and sports colourful polygonal visuals and boost-fuelled drift gameplay at 60 frames per second in the single player, regardless of the platform.

The racing game features eight different hotshot drivers, each with their own personality and multiple varied four-wheeled rides. There are also sixteen tracks from locations across the world and multiple game modes for players to prove their driving abilities.

Watch the reveal trailer below:

When we first played Hotshot Racing we were immediately transported to the halcyon days of our youth when we used to pop 50p coins into classic arcade racers like Virtua Racing, Crusin’ USA, SEGA Rally and others that used to punctuate seafronts across the UK” said Simon Byron, Curve Digital’s Publishing Director. “It’s fantastic to see this type of gameplay make a triumphant return and we can’t wait to see what people make of it!”
Hotshot Racing features multiple single-player and multiplayer game modes, both online and offline. It also includes 4-player local split-screen co-op. The modes include:
  • A traditional Grand Prix mode where challengers race on multiple tracks in a multi-round championship.
  • Time Trial mode where players complete laps as they wish to seek out the fastest lap times for the online leaderboards.
  • Cops and Robbers mode where criminals need to evade capture to secure a big cash bonus, whereas the police need to take them down
  • Drive or Explode where players need to race to checkpoints to avoid exploding.

Hotshot Racing is due for release this year in the Spring, and will launch on consoles and PC. It is currently available to Wishlist on Steam from today.
