Following on from our previous story, Hot Wheels Unleashed has now been officially announced for Nintendo Switch.

As expected, this action-packed arcade-style racer will be arriving later this year on 30th September. It's being handled by the developer Milestone (an Italian-based racing game specialist that has worked on series such as Ride, MotoGP and Monster Energy Supercross) in partnership with Mattel.

Hot Wheels Unleashed will allow players to build and race a collection of cars across a wide variety of environments, and even create tracks in an editor mode. There'll also be split-screen and online multiplayer. Here's a bit extra from the official PR:

"Hot Wheels Unleashed offers players the opportunity to drive the cars as if they were playing with the die-cast toys. The gameplay includes adrenaline-filled races, an extended choice of Hot Wheels vehicles with different attributes and rarity levels that players can customize with different skins, and jaw-dropping tracks set in everyday-life locations with special track pieces and interactive items. The game also features a revolutionary Track Editor enabling players to customize tracks in any game environment and share them with the game’s community."
