One of the surprises of Nintendo's E3 Direct this year was Cruis'n Blast. It was announced as a Switch exclusive and given a Fall 2021 release. The team at Raw Thrills has now narrowed down the release date. Clear your calendars racing enthusiasts because the game will be arriving on Nintendo's hybrid system on 14th September this year.

If you're not familar with this game, it's part of the Cruis'n series which originally started out in arcades in '94 with Cruis'n USA. This followed with a home console release on Nintendo 64 in 1996. Blast is the latest entry and originally arrived in arcades in 2017. Here's what you can expect from the home console version:

"Cruis’n Blast for Nintendo Switch features a total of 29 thrilling tracks, including all five fan-favorite tracks from the arcade version of the game (Death Valley, London, Madagascar, Rio de Janeiro and Singapore), as well as 23 upgradeable vehicles – from licensed supercars to unicorns. The game supports up to four players on the same console or separate consoles via local play."

There'll also be a physical release, which is being handled by GameMill Entertainment. Will you be adding this racer to your collection? Tell us down in the comments.
