A few weeks ago, Forza fans got a surprise when the Windows 10 game Miami Street by Electric Square was rebranded Forza Street. While the free-to-play game is only accessible on the Microsoft Store at the moment, it will soon be made available on Android and iOS devices.
There’s now a rumour suggesting this new entry in the Forza racing series could be making its way across to the Switch in the near future as well. According to AR12Gaming, dataminers have sifted through Forza Street’s source code and discovered Nintendo’s hybrid system is referenced multiple times. Here's the evidence:
Apart from the name, there’s not much about Forza Street that is similar to the mainline series. Races instead take on the form of quick-time events and players have minimal input. The game’s free-to-play design also means a lot of grinding is required if you want to unlock better cars. Below is a description from the official game site:
Race to collect legendary cars – from classic muscle to modern sports and retro supercars. Squeeze in a quick one-minute race or get immersed in an endless story with multiple paths to victory. This is a race for anytime, anywhere.
If Forza Street is released on the Switch, it would make a lot of sense considering all the recent comments we've heard from Microsoft about wanting to expand its audience and bring more Xbox Live enabled games like Cuphead to the device.
