Hotshot Racing Coming to PC and Consoles

From the creators of Sonic & All-Star Racing comes the latest ode to the high-speed adrenaline-fuelled arcade racing games of the 90s. Welcome to Hotshot Racing!

Curve Digital is delighted to unveil the colourful retro-inspired racing game: Hotshot Racing.

Lucky Mountain Games has teamed up with experienced racing-game stalwarts, Sumo Digital to bring Hotshot Racing to life. Sumo Digital might be familiar to fans as the devs who worked on the Sonic & All-Stars racing series.

A mighty fine pedigree, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Hotshot Racing channels classic arcade racers sporting colourful polygonal visuals and boost-fuelled drift gameplay. A silky-smooth 60FPS makes these stunning visuals all the better.

This is coupled with a silky smooth 60 FPS in the game’s single-player modes.

Hotshot Racing emulates and expands upon classic ‘90s arcade racing game formula. Featuring eight different hotshot drivers to choose from, each with their own personality and multiple varied four-wheeled rides. These racers will tear it up across 16 personality-filled sun-baked tracks from across the globe. The game also boasts multiple game modes for players to prove their driving prowess.

Curve Digital’s Publishing Director, Simon Byron, stated:

“[When we first played Hotshot Racing] we were immediately transported to the halcyon days of our youth. [These were days] were we used to pop 50p coins into classic arcade racers like Virtua Racing, Crusin’ USA, SEGA Rally and others. These games used to punctuate seafronts across the UK.

It’s fantastic to see this type of gameplay make a triumphant return and we can’t wait to see what people make of it!”

Hotshot Racing will also feature multiple single-player and multiplayer game modes – both online and offline including 4-player local split-screen co-op. 

There’s the traditional Grand Prix mode where challengers race on multiple tracks in multi-round championship; Time Trial mode where players complete laps as they wish to seek out the fastest lap time for the online leaderboards; Cops and Robbers mode where the criminals need to evade capture to secure a big cash bonus whereas the police need to take them down; and the Drive or Explode where players need to race to checkpoints to avoid exploding.
