Square Enix Collective will bring Circuit Superstars, to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2020.
Circuit Superstars combines arcade-style racing with a more realistic driving model that enables new players to jump in and race, but sets a high skill ceiling for serious players looking to set the fastest laps possible. It will feature a range of on- and off-road racing categories – from rally, GT, classic cars and even trucks – all in a unique and gorgeous visual style.
Original Fire Games is a six-person team, originally started by three siblings from Mexico (Carolina, Carlos and Alberto Mastretta). Together they have a combined total of 14 years in game development, as well as more than 15 accumulated years of real motor racing experience – and it’s this experience they’ve drawn from to make an accessible game with a realistic edge.
“Over the last three decades we have seen a fascinating evolution of racing games,” says Carolina Mastretta, Director & Producer at Original Fire Games. “And these days, we can drive almost any type of car on amazing recreations of the best tracks in the world. However, we believe it’s time to try something different, and we want to do this by reviving a style that pioneered the racing genre decades ago.”
Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix (and avid racing fan) is excited to be bringing Original Fire’s debut game on board. “Here at Square Enix Collective, we’ve been hoping to find a great racing game for some time – and we’re so happy to be working on Circuit Superstars. It’s one of those rare games that has charm and style, but also an edge to the handling that makes you strive to get better with each lap you drive.”
Today, SQUARE ENIX and Disney launch KINGDOM HEARTS –The Story So Far–, a definitive collection that takes players through nine chapters of the beloved KINGDOM HEARTS series. Now available on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, the complete compilation will provide fans with an encompassing experience through the world of KINGDOM HEARTS.
Taking a look at the just-announced voice cast for the much-anticipated KINGDOM HEARTS III, you'd think that Square Enix was crafting a feature film instead of a video game. For the new game (out January 29, 2019), they've managed to bring together an all-star cast of talent to reprise the roles that they've made famous in films from Walt Disney Animation Studios and Disney•Pixar. Check out the full list of talent below...
It won't even be released until 2019, and already, KINGDOM HEARTS III was awarded the Best RPG title at this year’s Game Critics Awards. This continues the critical reception of the title most notably at the E3 convention where it received over 30 awards from North and South American media publications.
Milestone's GRAVEL is all about bringing the thrill of off-road racing into your home, but what's the fun of racing if you can't challenge your friends? Following the recent release of their Ice & Fire DLC, the GRAVEL (get it from my affiliate, GameStop) team is now showing off their multiplayer modes in a new trailer that shows some of the new modes that players can take part in with up to seven friends. Going beyond single race and championship, Capture the Flag and King Run bring some new dynamics into the game. Check it out...
