3DS has already proven itself capable of handling accomplished racing games, with Ridge Racer 3D a highlight of the console's launch line-up, and Ubisoft is preparing its own four-wheel outing with World Rally Championship 2011.

The game will be the first fruit of Ubi's recent acquisition of the WRC licence, meaning a full array of real-life cars, drivers and courses all packed into the 3DS cartridge, all developed by experienced WRC studio Milestone.

Ubisoft expects the game to land in October this year as the 2011 season approaches its climax.
