Some of you may remember 80’s Overdrive, an Out Run-esque racer set for release on the 3DS. Though it was announced over a year ago, the developers were suspiciously quiet for much of that time, leaving many fans to wonder whether the title would be seeing a release at all. Then in September, the silence was broken and we were reassured that it would be coming soon. Now, the game has been given a release date.

Insane Code recently announced that 80’s Overdrive will be hitting the North American 3DS eShop on 14th December, and the European eShop has it listed for a 3rd December release. We’ll be sure to take this one for a spin and post a review, so watch this space.
