If you are like me then you would have been excited to see that Redout was a release window title back when the Nintendo Switch was first released in March 2017. Time has passed and we still haven’t seen many details for the high speed futuristic racer. At first glance it will remind you of the likes of F-Zero and Star Wars Episode I: Racer but it stands out as unique entry to the racing genre, and one that I’m finally excited to get my hands on.
Now the wait is almost over as Nicalis and 34BigThings have announced that on May 14th 2019 Redout will finally race on the Nintendo Switch. Also confirmed is all previously-released DLC packs will be included which brings a total of 60 tracks over 12 environments, 28 different vehicles, 11 different event types and more than 100 different events in single-player Career mode, hundreds of liveries to customize the vehicles, and more.
Below you will also find the overview and trailer:
Redout is a freakishly fast and uncompromising anti-gravity racing game, designed to be as challenging and satisfying as the best games in he vertigo-soaked futuristic arcade racing genre. Each turn, slope and twist applies a unique force to your vehicle, and players can drift and pitch the ship to minimize friction, channeling those forces into even greater forward velocity. The courses combine the efficiency of low-polygon structure with the eye candy of state-of-the-art shading, lighting, and special-effects animation. The result? Breezy coastlines, eerie frozen landscapes and vast desert plains, all peppered with the flying sparks, electrical arcs and blazing exhaust of Redout racing intensity.
Redout is available digitally for the Nintendo Switch on May 14th, 2019 on the Nintendo E-Shop for $29.99 USD
