There aren't really any ultra-realistic motorsport offerings available on the Nintendo Switch. Each one that has been touted as the real deal has often run out of gas before reaching the finish line. Motorsport Manager by Playsport Games and Curve Digital takes a different completely different route. Instead of actually driving cars, you manage them. It's described as a "racing management strategy game" and is the motorsport equivalent of Football Manager.
The game was previously released on Android, iOS and PC. The Switch version is said to be more of the same, allowing players to immerse themselves in a living, breathing world of motorsport crammed with strategic decision-making, as they attempt to lead their team to glory. Here' some more information, directly from the PR:
As the manager of a fledgling team, players can scout new talent, build and buy better parts and push their technology to make it to the top step of the podium. Everything from the cars, engineers and mechanics, to the headquarters, sponsors, and more is within the player’s control - as long as they keep an eye on their cash flow! The very best managers must be able to expand their racing empire and get the results on the track to keep their team in pole position.
