"Cars 2: The Video Game is created by the same studio that brought you the acclaimed Toy Story 3: The Video Game last year." Cast your mind back to the hazy days of Summer '10 and you might remember us raving about the excellent Toy Story 3: The Video Game, an entirely casual experience, but a very good one at that.

The game's set to tie-in with the release of the Pixar sequel this summer. It promises "an array of beloved Cars characters competing in action-packed spy adventures, as well as world-class racing." It'll also feature connectivity with World Of Cars Online, a free-to-play browser-based, virtual world based on the Cars universe.

“Cars is one of Pixar’s most successful and treasured franchises, so we are thrilled to be working with Avalanche Software again to extend our creative vision of the Cars 2 universe into the interactive medium,” said Jay Ward, Cars franchise guardian at Pixar Animation Studios. “Avalanche Software has the technology, experience, and history in working with us to create the best-looking Cars video game to date.”
