Isn’t it interesting how the bottom has effectively fallen out of the arcade racing market so smaller studios have started to pick up the slack? Enter a new game called Xenon Racer, which effectively looks like it’s stepped straight out of a 90s Club SEGA arcade. The title’s being published by SEODESCO and developed by 3DClouds.it, and it’ll be playable at the Milan Games Show this month.
Set in 2030, the release effectively envisions a future where hover cars have taken hold, but you’re racing in the world’s last ever wheeled vehicles. “Rushing through treacherous turns as bright neon lights flash by, players drift through the futuristic streets of cities like Tokyo and Dubai. Resisting massive G-forces, they’ll have to demand the utmost of technology to race at breakneck speeds in the pursuit of eternal victory.”
Hopefully the game can scratch that arcade racer itch, because the PS4’s been really underserviced in that department since the start of the generation really. There’s no word on a release date or price just yet, but we’re sure we’ll learn more over the coming weeks and months.
