Vector Unit has revealed that it is bringing its futuristic jet-ski racer Riptide GP: Renegade to the Switch.

The latest in the popular Riptide series, Renegade features "armoured riders" performing "death-defying stunts" in "illegal" races. Sounds like a hoot! It's also the first in the long-running series to have been designed "from the ground up specifically for modern desktop PC and console hardware."

Renegade features 8-player online racing, split-screen multiplayer, transforming vehicles, online leaderboards and state-of-the-art water physics.

There's no word on a release date at present, but this looks set to scratch that Wave Race itch on Switch. Are you looking forward to playing it? Let us know with a comment.
