Boasting a variety of tracks, dozens of vehicles, lots of customisation options and plenty of destruction, Wreckfest will be crashing into retail stores and on the eShop for $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99. The Super Mario movie cast reveal might have taken all the mainstream headlines yesterday, but Wreckfest's press release runs with it in style, giving us a good chuckle in the process:
"It's a me ... Wreckfest! Critically acclaimed demolition racer is soon to be tire-squealing onto Nintendo Switch. Wreckfest features do not include Chris Pratt, or princesses, and does not come with turtles, but it does include lawnmowers, harvesters, school busses, and although we don’t have anyone to fix a toilet, that doesn’t mean you can’t drive one.
The game will feature an online multiplayer mode that supports up to 16 players and will run at a "constant 30 FPS" when it launches on Nintendo's system. Here's a feature list to tell you a little more:
- Awesome Cars – Old, banged-up, patched-together cars that simply ooze style! From old American heavy-hitters to agile Europeans and fun Asians, you won’t find anything like this in other games.
- Meaningful Customization – Change not only the look of your cars but also upgrade their body armor
- Receive free updates that add new tracks and tournament challenges with unique rewards (please note: tournaments will be a free upgrade, available post-launch)
- Multiplayer – Wreck your friends online and take racing to the limit while chasing for demolition dominance!
