Today, upcoming twin-stick arcade racer Inertial Drift has received a free demo on Steam, and while we're naturally waiting for the game to appear on Switch, the new release has at least presented us with a new trailer to check out.
You can watch the new video for yourself above, where the game's twin-stick drifting mechanics and lovely comic book-like visuals are shown off once more. If you want to see exactly how those drifts are performed, we'd urge you to check out last month's gameplay trailer.
Thankfully, Switch owners won't have long to wait to get their hands on the full game, as it's set to speed onto the eShop on 7th August. It's actually getting a physical release, too, which is always nice.
Have you been keeping an eye out for this one? Think you'll get it when it launches in August? Tell us below.
So the video from the developers says Free to Play (which has a clear connotation) while the text says a demo, which suggests that the game will be priced on release. Is there any more clarity about this, or is this TBD?
Asphalt9 already scratches this itch VERY well, and is free.
Imagine auto modellista 2
From the drawing style to the choices of cars and music, and all the way to the title itself with that oversized D, these guys aren't even trying to hide how much they want the Initial D audience.
Gonna wait for reviews on this one. Looks interesting but something doesn't feel right.
Awesome! I tried out and it's really fun, but also very hard.
Looking forward to this. Indie games tend not to have a huge amount of staying power for me, but I will see about giving this a go when it comes out physically. Horizon Chase Turbo was fun but extremely limited in terms of its gameplay. Absolutely no subtlety or depth in its handling model. With the interesting control scheme in this game, I hope that it fares better in my estimations.
Looks ok, but really need Namco to bring us a new Ridge racer or a Ridge racer collection remastered.
@sarethums YES PLEASE! MORE AUTO MODELISTA!
@Axelay71 Seriously - I miss the days when a console launch meant there was guaranteed to be a Ridge Racer
Yes mate, really miss the 90s arcade racers. Far to many sim racers nowadays, would be great for Ridge to make a comeback.
@sarethums I was thinking the same thing!
@TimboSlice This game has a completely different aproach than A9, they share in commom just the fact they are racing games, Asphalt after all is a smartphone game with 10 seconds short races not meant for consoles at all, what a crap.
@TJuice I’m guessing you haven’t played A9 on Switch. Races are far longer than 10 seconds?! It’s a very flushed out arcade racer. I think people really overlooked it. Awesome multiplayer and no need to spend a penny to be good.
@TimboSlice I don't like smartphone games, Thank you.
@TJuice The Asphalt games started on the DS & NGAGE, not modern smartphones.
@tstorm Nope, they started on J2ME dumbphones.
