Racing games come in many shapes and sizes. You can be driving motorcycles, cars, indycars, dirt buggies, or other forms of transportation on land, water, or in the air. Some games take a looser arcade approach, while others let you tune everything from the gear shift ratio to the suspension. Square Enix wants to be all things to all racers next year, when Circuit Superstars comes out next year.
Square Enix Collective is excited to announce the next game in our line-up as Circuit Superstars, a unique racing game experience set to launch in 2020 on Xbox One®, PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch™ and PC.
Circuit Superstars combines arcade-style racing with a more realistic driving model that enables new players to jump in and race, but sets a high skill ceiling for serious players looking to set the fastest laps possible. It will feature a range of on- and off-road racing categories – from rally, GT, classic cars and even trucks – all in a unique and gorgeous visual style.
Original Fire Games is a six-person team, originally started by three siblings from Mexico (Carolina, Carlos and Alberto Mastretta). Together they have a combined total of 14 years in game development, as well as more than 15 accumulated years of real motor racing experience – and it’s this experience they’ve drawn from to make an accessible game with a realistic edge.
Trying to make an arcade-style racer incorporating realistic models seems ambitious. Hopefully they won’t crash and burn with this approach. Look for more updates on Circuit Superstars after E3.
