Launching later this week on Nintendo Switch is Carnage: Battle Arena, a car combat game that'll have you smashing your opponents to pieces.
The aim of the game here seems to be less about racing to the finish line, and more about destroying everything in sight. In 'Death Match' mode, you have to fight against other vehicles, gaining points as you obliterate them; 'Survival' is a battle-royale-like combat match; 'Score Battle' has you searching for collectables for points; while 'Freedrive' allows you to explore the game’s maps at your own pace.
There's also a more standard racing mode, and you can complete challenges that guide you through the game. Here's the feature list, as found on the eShop:
82 AWESOME CARS: Sports cars, muscle cars, SUVs, trucks, and more!
MULTIPLE GAME MODES: Battle Arena, Racing, Survival and more!
EXTENSIVE DESTRUCTION MODEL: Cause havoc in the environments
UNIQUE VISUAL STYLE: Blocky, retro-styled graphics
DOZENS OF MAPS: Drive in a park, on a football field, even in the clouds
GAME-CHANGING POWER-UPS: Use them to turn the tide of battle
The game launches on Switch this Thursday, 14th May, for £13.49 / $14.99.

@PretendWorking I think it's just you. It looks fun to me.
There's not enough in that trailer to convince me it's worth paying a lot for, but at the right price it looks nothing but fun.
This game looks pretty fun. Didnt know this was a mobile game. I might check out there before making an decision
Looks like it could be quite a good laugh, although I'm not sure it'll have enough legs to justify the amount they're charging.
They also need to lose the on-screen controls, that just makes it look like a lazy mobile port which may well be doing it a disservice.
Can we just have:
1,2,tdr,3 just all of them instead, please?
You can check the game out for free on mobile
I’d rather no news than this news.
Looks awful, but not on purpose.
Saw the headline, reminded me of Carmageddon.
Saw the trailer, didn't remind me of Carmageddon.
Conclusion: I'd rather play Carmageddon.
Can somebody out there please make a spiritual successor to Twisted Metal/Vigilante 8 games.
Yeah, this one... on the e-shop, the screenshots are from the mobile version so you can see the control layout of the mobile version.
Not sure if it's just played out but I'm surprised we haven't got some more Twisted Metal style games over the last 10 years. Seems like it would be a good time for a resurgence.
Looks like it could be fun... hopefully it has two-console local multiplayer.
this game is single player only, there is neither online nor couch multiplayer.
Oh, boy, a cheap looking mobile game with cars that look like fake LEGO vehicles...
Thanks, but no thanks.
Twisted Metal Port >>>>>>>>>>>
Another Demolition Derby game. What happened to the glory days of arena shooters with cars? Cel Damage is literally the only game in town and compared to the kings Twisted Metal and Vigilante 8, it's mild at best and it's been needlessly re-released twice. I do like the voxel 'damage' system in this game, but I just want to fire napalm at my friends from a school bus again.
@VegasToad Yes, I would love a twisted metal type game on the switch! This looks to colorful. Plus showing the touchscreen controls on the screenshots looks terrible.
