Microïds has revealed that Gear.Club Unlimited 2 - a sequel to the racer which sped onto Switch towards the end of last year - is also destined for Nintendo's hybrid console.

This new entry to the series will have you racing along on more than 1800 miles (almost 3000km) of roads on mountainsides, through nature parks, in the middle of the desert, and along the coast. Featuring more than 250 races, including championships, missions and challenges, the game will allow to go behind the wheel of more than 50 licensed cars from the world’s most famous manufacturers, such as the Porsche 718 Boxster, 918 Spyder, 911 GT2RS, Dodge Viper, Lotus 3-Eleven or McLaren 720s.

Despite feeling that the game was a little "lightweight", we praised the original release last year in our review, awarding it a solid 7/10 and saying the following:

"Gear.Club Unlimited is a highly entertaining racing game that sits firmly at the casual end of the realistic racer spectrum. It can be a thrillingly immediate experience, particularly on the go, where you can blast through one of its sweeping courses in just a minute or so."

While no specific date has been set just yet, the official word for Gear.Club Unlimited 2's release on Switch is that it will be available both physically and digitally "at the end of the year". Several retailers are suggesting that it may arrive on 4th December, however.
