It's time to relive those precious childhood memories as Scalextric is hitting the Nintendo Switch in video game form next week.

In a similar fashion to top-down classic racer Micro Machines, Scalextric has players racing around with toy models of cars, this time on those crazily fast plastic tracks that used to take up the whole house. Players can build their own circuits from scratch, adding straights and corners where they see fit before taking on their own masterpiece, or choose from one of the pre-existing designs based on some of the most famous race tracks in the world. Fancy taking on the toughest Formula One tracks in a Scalextric car? Go ahead.

You'll be able to choose from four classic car shapes, going on to customise your ride how you see fit with paint jobs and the like, before taking on a friend or the computer. It looks like a cheap and cheerful experience that could provide a slightly different experience on Switch - we'll have to wait and see how it plays when it arrives.

The game will launch on the Nintendo Switch eShop on 12th June. Will you be taking this one for a spin?
