Futuristic racers aren't quite as readily available as they once were during simpler times of gaming. In the '90s, the genre had a number of competitors fighting for the top spot, including the likes of F-Zero and Wipeout. Nowadays, this racing niche tends to take a backseat - with fewer big-name companies focusing on these types of games. Fortunately, smaller teams like Shin'en Multimedia have continued on with releases such as Fast RMX.

Xenon Racer is a new game published by Soedesco and developed by 3DClouds.it. Set in the year 2030, it looks more along the lines of Ridge Racer and is about a one-off championship where traditional wheel-based vehicles - powered by Xenon gas - drift and race around multiple cities including Tokyo and Dubai.

The game has been announced for multiple platforms including the Switch but other than this, there's no word on the release date or price. We'll make sure to keep you updated. In the meantime, take a look at the game's announcement trailer above and tell us in the comments if you would be interested in playing this futuristic racer on your Nintendo Switch.
