Speed Racer: the videogame
Coming up with a racing video game a couple weeks after Gran Turismo 5 hit the shelves can sounds like a risky idea, but when you’re wearing the Speed Racer name and have all the buzz generated by the movie with you, it might not be that dangerous.
The in-game video (that you can watch below) reminds us of games like F-Zero, Wipe-Out, TrackMania and Mario Kart (the Nintendo Wii version has been launched 3 days ago, and will compete with it too), as it’s arcade oriented, very colorful, futuristic and on crazy tracks with jumps and loops.
We believe the game will do well, especially among the younger crowd, and as a specific enough setting, story and unique look to get a lot of racers behind the wheel.
